Cyber Insurance Changes

Higher premiums and stricter requirements force organizations to boost their IT security posture.

Cyber insurance provides an important hedge against business-crippling cyberattacks, but policies have become increasingly expensive and difficult to obtain as malicious attacks become more frequent, severe and costly.

Wrangling with Wi-Fi

As employees return to the office, outdated Wi-Fi networks create connectivity challenges.

Connectivity is king in a work-from-anywhere world, but outdated and unreliable Wi-Fi networks threaten to undermine hybrid and remote work models. Legacy wireless infrastructure based on older standards do not adequately support changing Wi-Fi usage patterns.

Hide and Seek

There’s no single solution for detecting and defeating increasingly evasive malware.

Malware authors have become practiced at the art of deception, leveraging a multitude of techniques to disguise malicious payloads from conventional network security measures.

Backup Challenges

A look at multiple options for closing the gaps in data backup operations.

Today’s increasingly distributed work environments create new challenges for already complicated data backup processes. With more data — and more types of data — being generated and stored across multiple data centers, cloud platforms and endpoint devices, the vast majority of companies are dealing with significant gaps in their backup operations.

Who Goes There?

Identity-based security solutions support the zero-trust model and address evolving threat landscape.

Remote and hybrid work arrangements have become commonplace, with people across the globe now using a mixture of personal and company-owned devices to access data and applications from the corporate data center, public clouds, private clouds and the open Internet.

Upgrading Your Business PCs

As chip shortages ease, companies are looking for newer machines to support hybrid and remote workers.

With analysts anticipating a gradual easing of the global chip shortage through the rest of the year, small to midsized businesses (SMBs) are looking to revive long-delayed PC upgrade initiatives.

Developing an IoT Strategy

The Internet of Things can have a significant impact on the IT environment.

“Smart” buildings and lighting systems that automatically adjust for optimum energy efficiency and comfort. Medical devices that report vital signs and other data to doctors.

Protecting Consumer Data

Data privacy laws such as the CCPA provide a framework 
for safeguarding customers’ personal information.

Businesses collect and evaluate vast amounts of customer data to identify opportunities for growth, personalize marketing campaigns, and improve their products and services.

Waiting Game

Cybersecurity officials warn that the worst of Log4Shell exploits are yet to come.

Federal cybersecurity officials say there have been few successful exploits of a critical vulnerability in a widely used logging utility for Java-based software. It may only be a matter of time, however.

Rejuvenating Technology

IT Modernization is key to reducing risk and driving improved business outcomes.

Many organizations today are trying to meet 21st-century business requirements with 20th-century technology. Outdated systems make up nearly a third of the typical organization’s technology stack, according to a Vanson Bourne survey, and 80 percent of IT leaders say failure to modernize these systems will limit long-term growth.
