As applications move to the cloud, it no longer makes sense to backhaul all traffic over MPLS to centralised data centers. SD-WAN arrived to simplify branch IT, reduce MPLS costs, and deliver a great user experience. Put together, these advantages are driving organisations to rethink their network architectures and...
The recent shift towards cloud and mobility is due to the explosion of enterprise public cloud adoption. This has caused the traditional security perimeter that once protected users and internal services within the corporate network to largely disappear.

Many businesses have new and emerging financial and reputational risks with data access controls. The complexity of digitalization and newfound data science capabilities drive greater demand for data democratization. The diversity of data consumers, data assets and data access tools continue to grow. Businesses are...
Beyond mere information sharing, collective defense is a concept that aligns public and private sectors in a unified front against cyber threats. Bill Swearingen of IronNet Cybersecurity defines the concept and how it's being employed today.
Worries over ransomware and malware are slowing down enterprise IoT deployments, which is a reflection of the reputational and customer relationship risks at stake, according to a new survey. Here's what enterprises need to keep in mind when selecting security technology for IoT.
Hackers tried two methods of exploiting a zero-day vulnerability in Sophos' XG firewall, but Sophos says it made a temporary fix that mitigated the risks. Attackers originally attempted to plant a Trojan, but then switched to ransomware.
Internet usage around the world is shifting as a result of COVID-19. We are seeing an increase of 10-30% traffic across the board. As companies face a sudden surge in traffic, it is important that they ensure the availability of critical systems that serve their customers and employees.

A recently discovered cyber-espionage toolkit called Ramsay is designed to infiltrate air-gapped networks to steal documents, take screenshots and compromise other devices, according to the security firm ESET.
Security experts and law enforcement officials have long argued that paying ransoms doesn't pay. For starters, it directly funds the cybercrime ecosystem and makes it attractive for criminals to keep launching ransomware attacks.
Done right, a zero trust architecture can reduce the complexity of one's environment while also improving cybersecurity protection and efficiency. Bob Reny of ForeScout focuses on three critical considerations: visibility, compliance and control.
Network engineering and operations leaders are looking to replace their traditional
wide-area network (WAN) architectures with software-defined wide-area networks
(SD-WAN) in order to support the ever-increasing traffic demands (and associated
connectivity costs) that come with digital innovation (DI). These...
As the use of business-critical, cloud-based applications and tools continues to
increase, distributed organizations with multiple remote offices are switching
from performance-inhibited wide-area networks (WANs) to software-defined WAN
(SD-WAN) architectures. SD-WAN offers faster connectivity, cost savings,...
Digital transformation is a strategic initiative for the majority of distributed organizations in 2019. The need to support cloud-based applications across sites has led many organizations to switch from wide-area networks (WANs) to software-defined WANs in an effort to eliminate performance and operational...
The latest edition of the ISMG Security Report analyzes the privacy issues raised by COVID-19 contact-tracing apps. Also featured: An update on efforts to fight fraud tied to economic stimulus payments; John Kindervag on the origins of "zero trust."
