Isolating The Threat

Today, with an evolving threat landscape, the web gateways have morphed into a key component of the cybersecurity defences. If a threat attempts to penetrate the security perimeter through a browser on the network, web gateways can be a key line of defence.

But conventional web gateways can’t match the sophistication of today’s cyber attacks and hackers. Over-reliance on them can put your data, users, customers, organisations and reputations at risk for a number of reasons:

Brokering Security in the Cloud

It’s no secret that when it comes to the cloud and security, most enterprises are sorely lagging, preferring to trust cloud service providers to secure their corporate data.

But as cloud apps become mainstream, accidental transfer of data, theft and infection is a daily reality. If you have a significant investment in the cloud, you need a cloud access security broker (CASB) to protect your cloud-based data.

The Rising Importance Of Data Security

Security remains the number one inhibitor to the adoption of cloud services, and any examination of public cloud resources will find evidence that organizations are struggling to extend visibility and control in public cloud environments. As critical data is increasingly being moved into public cloud computing environments organizations are struggling to maintain basic cybersecurity best practices. The struggle to extend visibility and control in public cloud environments has been documented in a variety of studies in recent years.

Overcoming the obstacles of hybrid IT deployment

There is no question that current IT deployments are very different from what they were five years ago - x86 virtualisation, web services and containerisation along with other game-changing technologies have driven this change.

Choices and control - Demystifying the private, public and hybrid clouds

The choices for adopting cloud services into your overall IT strategy are becoming more varied. One major consideration concerns which cloud model to deploy. Whether you opt to go private, public or hybrid, it all comes down to the level of control you expect – and require.

Hybrid cloud - The what and the why

Gartner’s 2014 “Hype Cycle for emerging technologies1” lists hybrid cloud as being close to the “trough of disillusionment” and less than two years away from “Plateau”. What does this mean in plain English? Essentially, it means that the hype about hybrid cloud is over and people are about to start rolling up their sleeves to implement hybrid cloud technology. According to a recent report by Tech Pro Research2, 70% of companies globally are currently using or evaluating a hybrid cloud.
