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.
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.
Our review of 2021 IT trends reported that Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) was not only a common feature for enterprise IT teams, but that it will be sticking around for the near future, too. Much of this is attributed to shifting remote work architectures, which have made traditional perimeter security architectures essentially outdated. As organizations move away from a full-on remote workforce and into more of a hybrid model, ZTNA features remain just as important.
Digital transformation initiatives have fallen well within the realm of the traditional wide-area network (WAN). Complications with emerging market trends, shifting consumer demands, and increased competition are primary reasons why one enterprise after another has made the jump to software-defined WAN (SD-WAN). And for those that haven't, well, they most likely (or should) have this on their list of IT investment objectives. If not, there will be compromised business-critical services and network performance.
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.
As global industry evolves, digital innovation that features a hybrid, “from anywhere” business environment has become critical to modern workforces. New formats, like zero-trust access (ZTA), allow employees and external partners to utilize digital resources, no matter when or where they choose to work.
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.
Over the last year, the need to support employees from alternative working locations has risen dramatically. However, even as employees return to the office, when given the choice, many are choosing to continue working from home. For IT, this means finding a longer-term solution that can provide the same network security and user experience at these alternative work locations that employees would have in the office.
Today’s enterprise networks are no longer centrally located and are increasingly geographically dispersed, especially as mobile devices and Internet-of-Things (IoT) technologies have been adopted. Software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications and cloud computing have further complicated matters.
Embracing new advances in technology and moving business in a more digital direction is a priority for enterprises in every industry. However, beginning a digital innovation or transformation journey is only step one of the process. The next step is developing a strategy to ensure you meet your digital goals.
