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,

Challenges at the Edge: Security

Edge computing is growing exponentially and is part of a cybersecurity landscape with new risks that organizations must be aware of and prepared for. As the need for edge computing in IoT environments grows, so will the need to connect to local, interconnected data centers. Colocation facilities can provide the low latency and processing speeds

Data Center Security – Can a Data Center Ever Be 100% Secure?

Every company strives to ensure that its IT infrastructure and data are secure. And data centers need to do everything they can to support these efforts on the part of their tenants. There are two additional dimensions of security that data center operators in particular need to lock down: physical security and logical security.
