Cloud Challenges

Cloud Challenges

Cost, security and performance issues can make public cloud usage tougher than expected.

It’s relatively easy to get started using public cloud platforms. Users with no special technology skills can move data in and out of the cloud or use cloud-based applications by doing hardly more than moving sliders and clicking a few buttons.

Wi-Fi Gets an Upgrade

Wi-Fi Gets an Upgrade

Long-awaited protocol updates boost security and simplify IoT connections.

When the first Wi-Fi protocol was released in 1997, it set the stage for a remarkable shift in the way people work and the devices they use for computing and communication. Wi-Fi now moves more than half of all Internet traffic, and it has helped make mobile the primary digital platform for business users in the U.S.

However, this shift has also introduced some risk.

Full Speed Ahead

Ultra-fast 5G networks will create many business benefits through increased wireless efficiency.

Businesses of all sizes now consider wireless integral to their operations and have made it the network of choice for employee and business connectivity.

Addressing the Data Tampering Threat

Addressing the Data Tampering Threat

File integrity monitoring helps ensure that critical system and data files aren’t altered — maliciously or accidentally.

Most organizations associate the term “security breach” with the theft or exposure of sensitive data. However, data tampering could pose an even greater threat, according to leading security experts.

Safer Sharing

Safer Sharing

Organizations must take steps to reduce risks from unmanaged file-sharing services.

Cloud applications and services make it easy for business users to explore new ways to do their jobs with improved speed, flexibility andefficiency. Unfortunately, they also make it easy to circumvent IT authorization, which significantly heightens the risk of data loss and compliance violations.

Beyond the Password

Beyond the Password

Enhanced biometrics solutions boost security through stronger authentication.

The password has been a linchpin of security for millennia, a common way to demand proof of identity in order to control access to an area. It may have been effective for medieval castle sentries, but the password has become notoriously inadequate for protecting modern IT environments.

Outsourcing Cybersecurity

Organizations are turning to managed security service providers for help in boosting data security and regulatory compliance.

Organizations continue to make significant investments in cybersecurity, but cybersecurity incidents continue to make headlines.

A New Way to WAN

A New Way to WAN

Software-defined WAN solutions help to reduce costs and streamline operations through flexibility, consolidation and centralized management.

The wide-area network (WAN) has become one of the most critical components of the IT infrastructure, enabling organizations to gain access to cloud resources and connect remote locations and workers to headquarters.
