Successful digital transformations in healthcare will require enough bandwidth and processing power to handle unprecedented amounts of

COVID-19 & Digital Transformation: Education

Prior to COVID-19, the adoption of digital educational resources was on the rise. However, in the spring of 2020, COVID-19 quickly and substantially accelerated the adoption of online learning software, including language apps, virtual tutoring, and video conferencing tools as school districts had to rapidly shift from an in-person model to an online, learn-from-home model.

COVID-19 and Digital Transformation: Supply Chains

COVID-19 has had a multifaceted impact on the economy. However, it has had an outsized impact on one of the economy’s most vulnerable and easily disrupted components: the supply chain. By necessity, companies must now scramble to integrate digital transformation initiatives into their supply chain management. The adoption of digitization trends helps companies gain three

Challenges at the Edge: The Rocky Road to 5G

Although 5G does live up to its hype when it comes to drastically increased bandwidth, faster speeds, and lower latency, it will not come seamlessly. The full rollout will be longer, more complex, and more expensive than industries, government, and citizens would like. However, no matter how long it takes or how much it costs,

Cyber-Security Essentials: Next-Generation Anti-Virus Protection

Next-generation anti-virus (NGAV) protection is a new breed of security solutions designed to counter rapidly-evolving security threats. Functioning as a necessary supplement to the traditional methods used to protect enterprise IT, NGAV solutions combine traditional endpoint protection platforms (EPP) and modern endpoint detection and response (EDR) technologies in order to offer the advanced detection and

Cyber-Security Essentials: Cloud Security and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)

As mobile workforces and cloud services continue to rapidly proliferate, applications that were once hosted in traditional data centers have moved to the cloud. Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a new network security service model that addresses the security challenges associated with distributed, mobile workforces by shifting the focus of network security to the

Cyber-Security Essentials: Next-Generation Network Access Controls

In the face of rapidly changing network infrastructure, traditional Network Access Control (NAC) solutions are no longer adequate for endpoint security. Next-generation NAC solutions must evolve to fully coordinate endpoint visibility, vulnerability assessment, access controls, and automated threat responses.

Cyber-Security Essentials: Vulnerability Management Programs

Ransomware attacks are growing more than 350% annually. One of the biggest challenges in dealing with cyber-attacks is that vulnerability is never static. New vulnerabilities in IT systems are constantly emerging, creating new cyber-threats. To protect themselves, it’s crucial for organizations of all types to employ a robust vulnerability management program (VMP). A VMP identifies, prioritizes,
