Cyber threats are in a constant state of evolution, posing a danger to organizations of all sizes, from the largest of enterprises to small and medium-sized businesses. All face heightened vulnerability to cyberattacks for several reasons, including limited resources in the SOC and a slower response to emerging threats. Even enterprises that have the budget to swiftly adopt new technologies and data transfer methods still struggle with effectively measuring ROI from deployed security tools and sorting aggregated data coming through their firewalls.

The evolving digital landscape brings new challenges to security operations, especially when it comes to the end users working in it everyday. Recent studies indicate more than 99% of cloud breaches are the result of preventable misconfigurations or mistakes by consumers. As a result, organizations are seeking more efficient and cost-effective IT security monitoring and management services to support overwhelmed end users drowning in data and alert overload.
A constant, unwelcome guest in the digital transformation era refuses to leave: ransomware. This digital villain continues to adapt and grow despite years of battle. Although there have been a number of alerts and updates about ransomware, enterprises are still finding it difficult to ward off these threats.
Email is a vital part of our lives, both for business and personal communications. However, this integral tool is increasingly vulnerable to malicious attacks by cybercriminals aiming to steal credentials, confidential data, or funds. To protect against these complex threats, companies need a robust multi-layered security measure in place when handling emails.
Network security is an essential component of any organization's digital transformation journey. With the increasing complexity of cyber threats, network firewalls are a critical tool for protecting distributed infrastructure from malicious attacks. Security solution services offer organizations the ability to extend and strengthen their overall security efforts from edge to core, allowing them to securely scale their digital business operations. By deploying advanced technologies such as next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) and intrusion prevention systems (IPSs), organizations can protect themselves against a wide range of internal and external threats while maintaining high levels of performance. Read on to learn about Fortinet’s FortiGate NGFWsand why they are considered the best in the business when it comes to providing organizations protection against web-based network threats.
SD-WAN (software-defined wide area network) deployments are becoming increasingly common as businesses strive to improve their employee productivity and agility. However, many SD-WAN solutions on the market today are incomplete and do not provide the full range of benefits that businesses require. Issues like limited scalability, the lack of automation to simplify operations, lackluster cloud on-ramp, and cloud and SaaS integrations can result in a poor user experience that undermines the value of an SD-WAN deployment.
The emergence of remote and hybrid work opportunities serves as one of the biggest lasting changes the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to our lives. This popular option saves money for both the employer and the employee while helping many workers find the work-life balance they were looking for. Unfortunately, working from home has also brought with it a host of technological conundrums, particularly when it comes to cybersecurity.
Cloud security is often viewed as a hindrance to productivity and agility, slowing down the ability to develop new applications and processes. However, when adopting a new cloud environment such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), you must balance adequate cloud security with the cloud’s elasticity and scalability.
Vast amounts of cybersecurity incidents can quickly overload security teams in this day and age. Due to a marked increase in sophisticated cyberthreats, IT teams are struggling with alert fatigue, an accelerated threat landscape, and a shortage of skilled workers. This increase in cybersecurity threats has made it more important than ever to protect your organization’s sensitive data. Fortunately, the evolution of Artificial Intelligence (AI) can support the complex needs every modern enterprise has today.
