Ensuring a strong defense against security breaches is an essential part of any modern business. Being responsible for important data like financial and medical records or other private information means you simply cannot ignore proper security protocols. Enterprise data security and protection is a crucial part of any company’s IT structure. Fortunately, there are simple yet powerful data storage solutions that guarantee data security and protection along with solid recoverability options.
The rapid implementation of digital transformation across all industries makes network management and security more complex. This heightened complexity increases vulnerabilities, leading to a greater frequency of data breaches along with a higher average cost per breach. Just last year, businesses experienced the highest average cost of a data breach in 17 years at $4.24 million, rising from $3.86 million in 2020. To stay protected, enterprises need to utilize efficient approaches such as network segmentation.
Business information has always been an important commodity. Due to this, it’s necessary for data security to be a top priority in every enterprise. The immense value and volume of data continues to increase as companies expand with digital transformation and extend their geographical footprint. Protecting information must be at the top of the list when organizations consider what they should focus on for enterprise growth. If a breach occurs, businesses may lose more than just time and money – they can also lose their customers’ trust. Fortunately, there are solutions to help organizations safeguard sensitive data, mitigate cyberattacks, and manage infrastructure demands.
We’ve unpacked the term “Digital Transformation” for some time now, and the urgency for meaningful digitalization only continues to increase from enterprise to enterprise. But as an IT leader, do you know which areas of transformation are worth investing over others? It can be a tough call to make if your IT personnel are already struggling to take on additional projects and workflows or if your budget isn’t as forgiving as it once was.
As another year has concluded, we have reached that time to review the IT trends of 2021. Most IT professionals could use an extra minute to catch their breath as last year continued to push many IT departments due to the pandemic's outbreak in 2020. To gain some perspective on our year-long journey, we sat down with two senior executives at WEI, David Fafel, and Greg Labrie, to get their perspectives on the relevant IT trends that came about in 2021. We also pulled data from a commissioned study we did in partnership with IDG concerning the state of digital transformation in 2021. The study involved an audience of IT decision makers (ITDMs) across multiple industries that provided insightful and surprising information concerning their IT initiatives in 2021.
Today’s cybercriminals are better equipped and are utilizing technology that’s more advanced by the day. With the value and importance of data only growing, protecting that data has never been more essential and enterprises need all the help they can get. With this in mind, we recently held a cybersecurity event to share information on key topics including:
Regardless of the subject, there’s no one better to learn from than the experts. With this thought in mind, we recently held a cybersecurity webinar featuring Kevin Mitnick, a famous hacker and New York Times bestselling author, James Morrison, a HPE Distinguished Technologist and a former FBI agent, and our own Greg LaBrie, an enterprise security industry veteran and our Vice President of Technology Solutions and Services.
In the last six months, the fear of cyberattacks has grown significantly, largely due to several high-profile incidents that left enterprises struggling to deal with the fall out and the general public fearful of the next attack.
Even as enterprises put the chaos of 2020 behind them, cybersecurity holdovers from the past year continue to haunt IT security teams. In addition, new security threats rear their ugly heads every day, keeping IT on their toes.
As an IT leader, cybersecurity threats are constantly on your mind. They lurk in dark corners, lay in wait and when a moment of vulnerability presents itself, they strike!
