Enterprise Security Solution Portfolio


Nowadays, rapid evolution of technologies leading to the exponential growth of risks and events, and combined with chronically short staffed teams who are struggling to keep up with the volume. The threat landscape is changing rapidly, with the sophistication and numbers of threat variants becoming too great to stay abreast of, using traditional approaches. The repercussions of incidents and breaches are increasing, with the financial costs and risks growing rapidly, forcing many organizations to fetch for the solutions that can prevent the risks they are facing and accomplish the 3 main security concepts CONFIDENTIALITY, INTEGRITY & AVAILABILITY.

As for that we are offering the Next era of Security solutions in a Portfolio across the leading vendors in each security layer with a granted beneficial security capability.

Customer Challenges

1. Data Security: CIOs must have clear answers to questions such as how specifically data breach would affect the business, how zealously it must be guarded and what to do in case of a data breach.

2. Visibility: Usually CIOs are the last to know when a breach occurs due to lack of full visibility into the location of critical data. It is therefore critical that CIOs spend time and money in the security measures that will really protect the organization from an attack.

3. Strategy: As CIOs we need to rise up to the challenge of being enablers of powerful new digital capabilities while ensuring security only gets better and better.

4. Key Performance Indicator (KPI): Virtualization has led to the expectation that security resources can be increased or decreased at a moment’s notice as needed. Therefore demonstrating that security can manage KPIs like other aspects of the business where spending can be increased or decreased according to business needs will be a big challenge this year.

5. Compartmentalization: Traditional approach for data security of serving data on a ‘need to know’, ’least privilege’ and ‘breach containment’ basis ensured that if something went wrong, the breach was contained. In today’s era of ubiquitous data, CIOs need to protect data from multiple attack vectors and explore new techniques of compartmentalization to provide defensible security and privacy.

6. Third Party Vendors: With increasing third party providers, organizations need to seriously think of processes to put in place to avoid situations where a vendor accidentally provides access to an organization’s data, intellectual property, plans or negotiations that can lead to an unintended security breach.

7. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD): The BYOD trend is here to stay and very few organizations have good policy guidelines for these devices. The challenge this year will be to manage risks stemming from device mismanagement, external manipulation of vulnerabilities in the device and deployment of unreliable business applications.

8. Legacy Technology: Many organizations continue to support legacy systems. As connectivity continues to increase, these vulnerable systems are more exposed to attackers. Organizations need to identify and assess their exposure to legacy technology and the challenge will be to protect these systems while managing an already stretched IT security budget.

9. Regulations: Governments are in the process of determining what constitutes “due care” or “reasonable” efforts in IT security and forming laws that levy penalty on organizations that fail to sufficiently protect sensitive data such as Personally Identifiable Information. Companies need to ensure that they are doing all they can to prevent security breaches. For example, companies must ensure that their threat prevention program is configured correctly and operating the way it should be and that it has no holes thaat advanced hackers can exploit
