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.
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.
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.
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.
In the competitive world of technology, one of the biggest challenges for IT leaders is adapting to evolving tactics and changes in network connectivity. This is similar to professional sports, as offensive and defensive schemes often change during a season due to trending playbook wrinkles. Team leaders that deploy dated scheming eventually fall behind in on-field play and their win-loss record will reflect this. In the world of IT, outdated network architectures and middleware lead to more serious burdens with hindered device management and security. As a result, many enterprises can’t fully enjoy the benefits of cloud technologies and digital transformation.
Enterprises face significant challenges when it comes to managing routine activities such as DDI (DNS, DHCP, IPAM), network reporting, and auditing efficiently and cost-effectively. Additionally, reliance on a handful of individuals with expertise in DDI management forces organizations to monopolize the valuable time of these experts, leaving less time for strategic projects.
It’s been a wild ride the past three years, and our team has learned an awful lot about the transformative power of digital technology and the exploitable vulnerability that it introduces. Here are some examples:
- Password authentication is no longer secure.
- Enterprise users and the devices they work on are under siege by threat actors.
- Bolt-on security is no longer a viable approach to securing our digital devices.
- Internal IT must also focus on innovative solutions, not updates and password resets.
Due to no staffing, our pharmacy will be closed on Thursday, December 21, 2022.
For months, signs reading like this have been a frequent occurrence at retail pharmacies across the country. Amid a national shortage of pharmacists and technicians, pharmacy closures and reduced hours have become the new norm. As a result, pharmacies have extended wait times to fill prescriptions, had less availability for vaccines and patient consults, and have seen growing customer dissatisfaction.
The sad reality is that the shortage is likely to worsen. But technology can help retail pharmacies weather the talent shortage.
Just as the AI-driven app on your smartphone navigates you to a new destination, IT leaders also believe there should be an AI-driven app that assists with managing a self-driving network. Well, turns out there is such an app available for that, and it is called Mist AI from Juniper, a recognized leader in AI for IT operations (AIOps).
As enterprises push their digital transformation efforts into overdrive to support employees and make business decisions from anywhere, they open themselves up to a new world of data and security risks. To help manage this new influx of information and mitigate security breaches, enterprises need a solution that can analyze the massive amounts of unstructured data at the point where people, devices, and things connect to the digital world. This is where Aruba ESP shines. Keep reading to learn more about Aruba ESP and how it can help your enterprise on its journey to digital transformation and beyond.
