The hyperconnected threat landscape

Businesses I speak to generally have the same problems with manpower: It's hard to find the right people and expensive to retain them. A fully managed network-based solution alleviates that aspect of the challenge, allowing them to focus on other aspects of cyber security.

The role of the network

Securing the organisation at the network ensures that threats are detected and stopped before they reach servers, workstations, and mobile devices. When this network-based approach is incorporated as part of a multi-layered security strategy, organisations gain better threat intelligence, faster response times, and more effective mitigation of cyber risks.

A network-based security provider can also safeguard valuable digital infrastructures and mitigate against cyberattacks by offering more contextual information about an ongoing attack. Instead of reacting the same way to every attempted incursion, real-time visibility lets organisations make an informed decision faster and tailor their response based on the severity or impact of the threat. Ultimately, a unified network and security workflow offer greater cyber resilience.

The additional insights let businesses quickly identify anomalies, unauthorised access, and potential security breaches. By staying vigilant and utilising advanced network monitoring tools, organisations can proactively safeguard their valuable data and maintain a strong security posture in the face of ever-evolving cyber threats.

Cyber security is not just about the technology, but the competent interlinking of the people, process, and technology; it is about ensuring that they work in tandem such that the organisation’s cyber posture becomes much stronger than the sum of its parts.
