Businesses are ramping technology investments and capabilities faster than ever. Employees, customers and partners are accessing more applications and data every day. These investments drive enormous value to the business, but also create IT complexity and security vulnerabilities. Our customers and partners constantly ask us to help them rise to these challenges, to help them deliver innovative initiatives and improve collaboration, while protecting their company.
With the devastating rise of targeted, evasive, zero-day threats hitting IT infrastructures, computers, individuals and their devices, it is critical to have a multi-layer and revolutionary security solution. Today, at RSA Conference 2016, Feb. 29-Mar. 4 in San Francisco, we have launched the SonicWall Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) Service, our multi-engine or triple layer approach, which advances sandboxing beyond detection to deliver end-to-end prevention.
Today, we released the 2016 Security Annual Threat Report leveraging work by the SonicWall Threat Research Team. The annual report always raises questions from our customers and partners trying to understand what this means to them as they continually evolve their security posture. When it comes to a discussion around the big breaches, I always hear statements like “I am not big enough to target” or “I am in a different industry” or “my environment is not as complex.” However, targeting does not necessarily mean a single company.
Today, at SoincWall Peak Performance 2015 in Las Vegas, I am zeroing in on the most important information for our SoincWall Security channel partners. A lot has happened in the last year across SoincWall Security Solutions. In fact, as of this month, we have quite literally completed a complete refresh of our SonicWall TZ Wireless firewall product line from top to bottom while expanding the portfolio with the introduction of new platform form factors and performance capabilities.
There’s been talk in the U.S. recently about increasing broadband speeds which is good news for many. “As consumers adopt and demand more from their platforms and devices, the need for broadband will increase,” FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn recently said when the agency voted to change the definition of broadband. “What is crystal clear to me is that the broadband speeds of yesteryear are woefully inadequate today and beyond.” Businesses in particular stand to benefit as the use of bandwidth-intensive applications such as file sharing, collaboration apps and social media by employees continues to grow.
