With growing agility and flexibility on network access, businesses require open and digitally transformed smart platforms that aid in the rapid adoption of the mobile, and smart, office. It’s about keeping up with the pace of technology or face the reality of stagnating.
Yet, digitisation of the business makes IT infrastructures more complex and blurs the boundaries of the corporate perimeter – which poses a massive security risk to the business and the data it holds, as all businesses have sensitive data that must be kept safe. And any cyber-cautious decision maker knows that ‘open’ networks means business vulnerability and that technology opens the doors to cyber criminals.
Why is the business network at risk?
While businesses rush to keep up with rapid digital transformation demands, often very little consideration is given to broader corporate security needs and the requirements of endpoint protection. The reality however is that endpoints have become the front door to business networks and information and the business must find a way of securing the data stored on them.
The growing number of connected devices to a network is directly proportional to the growth of cybersecurity risks - due to the increase of uncontrolled endpoints. Business owners need to have sight and control of the potential risks that vulnerable endpoints can result in and ensure the necessary is being done to avoid cyber breaches. However, endpoint protection is just the start of an effective security journey for endpoints. Given how cybercriminal antics continuously evolve, aspects like patch management to eliminate security vulnerabilities and encryption, which can be used with all spectrums of endpoint protection tools, in any endpoint, including servers or end-user devices, need to also be considered.
This type of advanced cyber security requires a company to adopt advanced cyber security tools that automatically control and manage the security of its entire workplace fleet. Tools such as robust antivirus solutions, systems management that can patch holes in applications, encryption tools to protect data and mobile device management for example, can go a long way in supporting a business’s full security strategy around protecting endpoints. However, they can also create complexity - due to multiple policy sets and systems required to manage each tool. And complexity is security’s number 1 enemy.
