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.
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.
In the past year and a half, securely facilitating remote working has become a priority for a majority of enterprises. It’s also become clear that remote working is going to be a longer-term or permanent working model enterprises will need to support.
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!
Even as employees return to the office, just as many are choosing to stay remote. As a result, many enterprises need solutions that can provide specialized security for remote workforces.
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.
The greatest measure of an IT security solution, besides its usefulness in protecting the enterprise from threats, is how cost-effective it is. This is especially true in the eyes of enterprise leaders and decision makers, who continually expect more out of IT while offering fewer resources.
To stay competitive and fulfill customer needs, today’s enterprises demand unparalleled availability and resiliency in all aspects, including data centers. At the same time, the attack surface is growing ever larger through rapid digital expansion, and cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated day by day.
Enterprises in every industry have found that, in order to stay competitive, they must embrace the new digital economy and adapt their IT environment to match. As a part of these digital transformations, IT teams must upgrade their security solutions to keep ahead of cybercriminals who are eager to take advantage of any security weaknesses that come about as a result of new technology integrations.
