Making Safer Internet in a Cloud-First, Anywhere Operations and Internet-first eraunwiredcp
Today, businesses have the need to build an infrastructure that is agile to support customers globally, flexible to enable their employees work efficiently from remote locations and diverse across geographies to support distributed deployments. To enable this new reality, organizations are increasingly moving their apps (both existing and new) to a mix of public and private clouds with an internet-first approach, eventually landing into multi cloud architectures.
The network architectures have inverted with majority users, data, applications, and traffic now residing outside the corporate perimeter. The older approach of backhauling traffic to office VPN before breaking out is both inefficient and costly. Though Internet has become more reliable, it doesn’t offer assured SLAs, required performance for the use cases and visibility.
Against this backdrop, breaches can now happen anywhere starting from devices, applications, users or at Clouds. CIOs and Chief information security officers (CISOs) need to adapt rapidly to envisage the security posture and network architecture against this scenario and recalibrate their security strategies to make use of internet safe for all stakeholders.
They should consider adopting a layered approach towards network security, to create a wider coverage against variety of security threats. Solutions such as Secure Web Gateway should be considered to enforce company security policies and filters malicious internet traffic in real-time. In addition, they should consider expanding the use DDoS detection programs that will help detect and mitigate attacks that would disrupt the business.
There is a chance that not all organizations will have the right set of resources to be able to handle today’s network and security needs. The right MSSP can help organizations offload most of these network performance and security responsibilities.
Join the ET Live Webinar Session around Making Safer Internet in a Cloud-First, Anywhere Operations and Internet-first era, powered by Tata Communications to learn how organizations can deploy the right set of network with required performance, right set of security technologies and controls, manage security operations – setting up end to end security and management and also investigate and remediate any security incidents efficiently and cost effectively.
