In today’s evolving digital landscape, businesses are finding a reliable ally in Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) to safeguard their networks and endpoints. Imagine it as a musical conductor, skillfully bringing together different players in a complex orchestra of networking and security.
Cybersecurity threats, including ransomware, malware and phishing, continue to grow and evolve, increasing risk for businesses of all sizes and across all industries. According to the World Economic Forum’s 2023 Global Risks Report, cybercrimes rank among the top ten global risks—ahead of the natural resources and debt crises, prolonged economic downturn and the use of weapons of mass destruction. With 91% of respondents in the 2023 Global Cybersecurity Outlook study reporting that a “far-reaching, catastrophic cyber event is at least somewhat likely in the next two years,” organizations need to do more to keep pace with the diverse, ever-changing threat landscapeto better manage cyber risk.
In the constantly changing world of cyber threats, it's crucial for organizations to strengthen their defenses. While advanced security features are important, they become less effective if basic security measures, like building a “security-first” culture in the workplace, are overlooked.
When recording a significant event where every moment matters, would you choose a video camera or a standard camera? A video camera, complete with expansive memory, makes frame-by-frame recording possible. In contrast, a standard camera only takes occasional photos and fails to capture the in-between moments that define an event in its entirety.
Many enjoy capturing photos and videos with their phones, but we often forget that our phone storage can get full fast. To solve this, some store their photos in the cloud. To keep our memories safe from loss or hacking, we utilize passwords and other security measures. But it's tough to keep our data organized and protected online.
Today’s discussion on sustainability is increasingly prevalent in ongoing dialogues, touching on varied issues from governmental budgeting practices to environmental concerns over global population growth. The state of sustainability is also a hot topic when it comes to cybersecurity as the aging reliance on human-led incident response grows flawed. The rationale for this shift is straightforward:
- Cyberattacks are escalating in frequency, severity, and sophistication.
- Modern business environments necessitate rapid IT responses, with processes required to move at breakneck speeds.
- Regulatory compliance requirements are becoming more stringent and complex.
Just as you rely on business-critical applications every day in the workplace, those same applications rely on a network that is available, scalable, and secure. But if an enterprise’s network architecture falls on the traditional side, this can complicate matters with the utilization of middleboxes like firewalls, load balancers, and tunnels for packet forwarding. This complexity comes with a high cost, hindering the deployment of new applications and creating challenges for intensive workloads like supporting video or connecting a widespread mobile workforce.
Investors with significant stock in public companies expect a high level of disclosure on information concerning new market competitors, shifts in product demand, and operational disruptions stemming from either natural disasters or cybersecurity. In catering to this need for transparency, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has recognized that cybersecurity incidents also warrant equal attention.
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.
Just like many other industries embracing digital transformation, the healthcare sector is also on a transformative journey. Many local hospitals and clinics that were once buried in paperwork have hopped aboard the digital train via the cloud. This move is motivated by the goal of improving patient care, making patient information easier to access by patients and their families, enhancing treatment outcomes, and streamlining business operations.
