A New Security Model Worth Understanding—and Emulating Enterprise security traditionally relied on a fortress strategy that locked down user endpoints and created walls around the network.
Today, this strategy cannot support or secure the use of mobile devices and SaaS capabilities, which exist outside the fortress. As a result, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) have been looking for new solutions that can secure these technologies today, and adapt as threats and business needs change.
The credit card industry’s security model is one example that provides a new way to think about risk and contain it—that is, if you can see past the occasional bad rap it’s gotten from attacks and breaches.
Un nuovo modello di sicurezza che vale la pena di studiare, e di imitare.
La sicurezza enterprise si basa, tradizionalmente, su una strategia che blocca gli endpoint degli utenti e posiziona la rete all'interno di una sorta di perimetro fortificato. Oggi, questa strategia non è in grado di supportare né proteggere l'uso di device mobile e le funzionalità SaaS, che esistono al di fuori di quel perimetro. Di conseguenza, i Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) sono alla ricerca di soluzioni nuove, in grado di tutelare queste tecnologie e di adattarsi al modificarsi di minacce ed esigenze di business.
Ein neues Security-Modell, das Sie verstehen und nachahmen sollten.
Die Security in Unternehmen ähnelte bisher einer Festungsstrategie, die Anwenderendpunkte abschottete und Mauern um das Netzwerk baute. Heutzutage kann diese Strategie die Nutzung von Mobile Devices und SaaS-Funktionen (Software-as-a-Service), die sich außerhalb der Festung befinden, nicht mehr unterstützen. Daher haben sich Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) nach neuen Lösungen umgesehen, die diese Technologien heute sichern können und die sich einer Zeit anpassen, in der sich sowohl Bedrohungen als auch Unternehmensanforderungen verändern.
Un nouveau modèle de sécurité qui mérite d’être étudié... et reproduit.
Traditionnellement, la sécurité des entreprises a toujours été fondée sur une stratégie de « forteresse », chargée de sécuriser les terminaux utilisateur et de former une barrière de protection autour du réseau. Aujourd’hui, cette stratégie n’est pas en mesure de supporter ou de sécuriser l’utilisation des périphériques mobiles et des fonctionnalités SaaS, qui existent en-dehors de la forteresse. Les responsables de la sécurité des informations (CISO, Chief Information Security Officer) sont donc tenus de trouver de nouvelles solutions à même de sécuriser ces technologies actuelles, et de s’adapter aux menaces et aux besoins métier en évolution.
Today, when you make decisions about information technology (IT) security priorities, you must often strike a careful balance between business risk, impact, and likelihood of incidents, and the costs of prevention or cleanup. Historically, the most well-understood variable in this equation was the methods that hackers used to disrupt or invade the system.

To overcome the challenges and risks of the digital era, while positioning their businesses for success, SMBs need to partner with professional services organizations with the expertise that can safely guide them through achieving the following six key IT business initiatives:
A strong information security framework (for external and internal threats)
24x7 application availability
Pervasive, end-to-end data protection
End-to-end professional services
If you’re a small-to-midsized business (SMB), you know that you’re operating in a fast-paced, ever-changing business environment. Customers want their demands met instantly, and increasing competition multiplies the pressure you’re under. If you can’t deliver, you can be sure somebody else will.
Fortunately, the technology landscape is changing the way you do business. Mobility, social media, and Big Data are leveling the playing field and making it possible for companies like yours to access more sophisticated technology, reach bigger audiences, target their messages, and innovate in their offerings. Yet nothing has changed the landscape so much as the cloud.
One of the few places that pervasive Wi-Fi is not found these days is in US Federal Government office buildings and military bases. Government IT departments explain this lack of modern technology by pointing to Information Assurance (IA) departments who block their planned deployments because of security concerns. IA departments, on the other hand, point to unclear rules, regulations, and policies around Wi-Fi use which prevent them from making informed risk decisions.
Searching for a Cloud Security Provider can be confusing. Many providers appear the same at first glance: similar metrics, similar promises. The fact is, the information you need to make a real comparison requires asking questions and probing for details that cloud services vendors don’t always volunteer. Use this list to be sure you’ve covered the essential elements for choosing the right cloud security provider to protect your organization from malicious cyberattacks.

How do you maintain the security and confidentiality of your organization’s data in a world in which your employees, contractors and partners are now working, file sharing and collaborating on a growing number of mobile devices? Makes you long for the day when data could be kept behind firewalls and employees were, more or less, working on standardized equipment. Now, people literally work on the edge, using various devices and sending often unprotected data to the cloud.
This dramatic shift to this diversified way of working has made secure backup, recovery and sharing of data an exponentially more difficult problem to solve. The best approach is to start with a complete solution that can intelligently protect, manage and access data and information across users, heterogeneous devices and infrastructure from a single console - one that can efficiently manage your data for today's mobile environment and that applies rigorous security standards to this function.
MIT Technology Review Survey: Executive Summary
Are you prepared for the next breach? Only 6% of leaders say yes.
Information security—or, the lack of it—is firmly on the radar for business and IT leaders in organizations of all sizes and in every sector. Many fear that their companies are ill-prepared to prevent, detect, and effectively respond to various types of cyberattacks, and a shortage of in-house security expertise remains of widespread concern.
Those are among the initial findings of the Cybersecurity Challenges, Risks, Trends, and Impacts Survey, conducted by MIT Technology Review of approx. 225 business and IT executives, in partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Security Services and FireEye Inc.
