In most organizations, the same issue is being felt – how can network security be increased without lowering performance within a budget? How much risk is acceptable? If your organization is not facing this issue, you should be looking at the growth of encrypted web traffic (https) and cloud computing and how your current firewall maintains performance and/or efficacy in this new environment.
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.
Living the life of a chief security officer (CSO), chief information security officer (CISO) or any title with the word “security” in it nowadays is surely a heart-wrenching experience each day. Far too often, yet another data breach in the news reminds you of the obvious notion that it’s not a matter of if but when you’ll be called upon to manage and contain a security incident in your organization.
