Old styles have a way of once again becoming trends. Ransomware, once an old threat, has come roaring back to get money, hold files ransom, and disrupt businesses—just like in the old days. It has grown to such proportions that it has become one of the top forms of cyberattacks.
Endpoint security is more relevant now than it ever has been. Companies are changing like never before, allowing employees to bring in and work from their own devices. The number of online attack occurrences has increased, and both networks and endpoints are at risk.
Keeping a network secure isn't an easy task for IT administrators. Cyberattacks differ greatly in threat and capability. If a company overreacts to a cyber threat or implements the wrong technology, major expenses can incur and hackers may have an easier time getting in. But, preventing a malware attack on your network is easy with the right tools.
Moving your business to the cloud can be a great benefit to your operation. So can creating a mobile workforce. However, to get the most benefits out of these business strategies, you need to have a long-term plan that aligns cloud computing and mobility management to your overall business operation.
Enterprise mobility is the bona fide ruler of today's business world. However, mobility best practices are only now being adopted and adjusted in many organizations. Those who have it, love it, and those who don't wish they did. It's an enticing idea—the possibility of having work easily accessible at your fingertips. You can work from anywhere.
When trying to go mobile, governments can struggle with the security challenges that come with it. While they continue to wrestle with the risks introduced by mobility, employees don't stop demanding access for more devices. To make everyone happy, network and security teams must align to ensure essential services are available and security policies are abided by.
Mobile technology has been ingrained in our personal lives for a while now and is gearing up to do the same in business. User demand for smartphone technology, along with rapid mobile device innovation, is driving the future of this end-user computing platform.
There is no doubt that libraries are integral to every community, ensuring there is an educated and literate population. The reliance on technology to provide access to information and communication technology services is a library's highest priority.
Libraries should have an online protection plan to safeguard themselves from the threats lurking in the corners of the internet. An online protection plan will help keep your library devices functional and safe, and your patrons' data secure. Libraries that don't have such a plan need to get one.
Knowing about IT security concerns is one thing, but actually safeguarding your network from them is another. However, you can't do the latter without the former. You can't effectively protect your network and devices from every single threat out there. You need to know what the highest risk to your IT infrastructure is.
