We have seen an incredible change in how the country is reacting to the pandemic. Many organizations were originally attempting to create or solidify contingency plans “if” the need to transition to a remote workforce arose - that became a reality for a large majority of organizations across the globe. From finance and marketing to technology and education, working from home has suddenly become the “new normal” for the foreseeable future, and securing your remote workforce has become to a top concern.
Given the increasing mobility of the current workforce, the need for on-demand technology and services will only keep growing at a rapid rate. One area that will be a huge catalyst for this is unified communications. Today, remote workers and field sales positions want devices and apps to quickly reach their counterparts.
The cyber security landscape is changing rapidly, sometimes daily. Many IT security teams are stretched to their limits, finding it challenging to manage the ever-multiplying threats and sometimes even decipher real risks from false alarms. To combat this and more quickly identify authentic threats, many organizations have turned to the option of building their own security operations center (SOC).
Now into 2020, the cybersecurity threats continue to come . And it is not just the traditional attacks businesses need to be afraid of - it is the newer variants. No matter which industry or company size, everybody is at risk.
A lot of these emerging threats stem from web applications being created and deployed. Very often, the IT or project management team are under enormous pressure to deliver a product under budget and ahead of schedule. Because of this, adequate security measures can be overlooked or missed. Or if your business outsourced the project, the third party could have not properly tested for vulnerabilities or weaknesses.
It is quite possible that a backdoor (or several) could be left open for risk.
A s we enter the fast track to 2020, top of mind of every C-suite executive, especially CIOs and the CISOs, is dealing with the cybersecurity threat landscape. The new year promises to bring new challenges, and many hurdles for all kinds of businesses to break through. There will be the usual attacks (phishing, ransomware, malware, etc.) but there will also be some more devastating and debilitating ones which when triggered can attack critical infrastructures.
All the wireless network connections that take place today use 4th generation, commonly known as 4G, technology. The first versions of this were deployed in both Oslo, Norway and Stockholm, Sweden, back in 2009. Because of advancements in technology and the explosive demand for rapid cloud services, the need has risen for even faster wireless.
As we enter a new decade, our jobs and personal lives will continue to become more automated, more digital and more connected than ever before. And innovation is powering the technology growth engine that appears to be at the tipping point of another significant step.
Introduction: In the world of business today, there are a lot of new buzz words that are floating out there. One of these is “blockchain”. Businesses have started to adopt this platform in varying levels, depending upon their needs. In this article, we examine why blockchains are becoming important to corporate America.
Amajority of companies have some sort of firewall. Many feel a false sense of protection and don’t even know the potential risks of insufficient armor against cyberattacks.
Security risks have significantly increased with the rise of connected IoT devices. According to an OpenDNS IoT study, “23% of respondents said they have no mitigating controls to prevent unauthorized device access in their company’s networks.” Traditional approaches to securing end-point devices will be impractical in the IoT era. More connected devices on the company’s network mean more risks, translating to a greater need to invest in security solutions.
