From students to executives, finding solutions to improve efficiency, productivity, and communication has become vital.
These end users are trying to excel in their work, and while they don't mean to cause harm, in most organizations this desire leads to the use of applications, services, and data storage and sharing beyond IT's boundaries. This practice, known as “shadow IT,” walks a line that information security officers are uncomfortable with, and it's having an obvious impact on technical support teams. The good news is, there are opportunities for all support organizations, regardless of their stance on shadow IT.
Digital certificates have become vital to MDM/EMM, WiFi and VPN access for mobile-device-to-enterprise authentication. But most struggle to identify who has access, audit that access, and terminate access if needed. IT teams need a central certificate security platform that delivers issuance and distribution, visibility, and policy enforcement, as well as the control needed to terminate access.

Law firms have received two dramatic wake-up calls about the vital importance of data
security in the last two years. First, there was the leak of 11.5 million documents from
offshore law firm Mossack Fonseca, known as the Panama Papers, which became public
Then came the massive cyberattack on prominent global law firm DLA Piper
in the summer of 2017.2
As we will explore, despite the industry’s aversion to media
coverage of such attacks, less-visible breaches involving the legal profession are being
reported worldwide in ever-increasing numbers.

GDPR will pose different challenges to each organisation. Understanding and acting on the implications for your own organisation is vital. That means taking a risk-based approach to ensure that you are doing what you need to do to manage your own specific risks to personal information.
While virtually all organisations will have to implement changes to become GDPR compliant, some will be able to take partial advantage of existing compliance to other security mandates and frameworks, such as ISO 27001 and PCI by extending those measures to protection of personal data. Even so, further work will be required to comply with GDPR, both with regards to security and its other aspects.
Data overload have burdened practically every largescale enterprise today.

Network performance and security are vital
elements of any business. Organisations are
increasingly adopting virtualisation and cloud
technologies to boost productivity, cost savings
and market reach.
With the added complexity of distributed
network architectures, full visibility is necessary
to ensure continued high performance and
security. Greater volumes of data, rapidlyevolving threats and stricter regulations have
forced organisations to deploy new categories
of security tools, e.g. Web Access Firewalls
(WAFs) or Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS).
Yet, simply adding more security tools may not
always be the most efficient solution.
High profile data breaches such as those at Equifax and MyFitnessPal have made everyone aware of cyber-risk. It is not only the cyber-risk that exists within your business you need to assess – do you understand the risk you inherit from the businesses you work with such as your:
-Acquisitions and mergers
For vital information about why you should assess the different types of organization you work with; and to learn how you can do this quickly and easily - Read our guide ‘Why Should You Understand the Cybersecurity Risk of the Businesses You Work with?’

Limiting access to confidential client files is vital. But choosing the wrong document security solution can overwhelm your staff (and your IT department) and leave your data vulnerable. Learn five important features a security solution should offer.
This paper discusses the value of two-factor authentication systems that provide vital access security for today's mobile workforces, who can now be productive from numerous remote locations: the home office, the airport, hotels, and customer sites. Moreover, the ubiquitous nature of mobile phones has now given rise to a new, convenient form factor for the software-based authenticator that resides right on the mobile phone/device.
As cybercriminals look for new ways to break through defenses, it’s vital that organizations have access to real-time operational intelligence across their applications, services, and security infrastructure. As Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI) migrated applications to Amazon Web Services (AWS), it needed to expand security capacity for edge protection of its AWS VPCs. REI chose Splunk for security monitoring, historical analysis, and data visualization in real time, to help it investigate events and mitigate operational risks.

SSL Certificates have been in use for almost 15 years, and they continue to serve a vital role in protecting data as it travels across the Internet and other networks. From online financial transactions to e-commerce to product development, SSL Certificates make it possible for users around the world to communicate sensitive information with the confidence that it is safe from malicious hackers. The Internet has evolved in innumerable ways over the past decade and a half; so why do SSL Certificates continue to instill trust? Simply put, SSL Certificates are very effective in protecting data in transit.
Yet, customers transacting on websites and systems that are protected by SSL security still face serious threats . One key reason for this danger: poor SSL Certificate management. Enterprises with hundreds of SSL Certificates from several different providers could lose track of certificates in their environment.
This white paper will present the pitfalls associated with poor SSL Certificate management, why they are potentially dangerous to the enterprise, and how enterprises can keep track of SSL Certificates effectively.
The ongoing adoption of cloud computing by communications service providers (CSPs)
continues to fundamentally reshape their business models and technology strategies on
several levels. One such area that is garnering significant attention is the impact of the
cloud on security services. This is because security services and the vital tools they
encompass can be empowered through the adoption of a carrier cloud model. This, in turn,
better positions CSPs to meet the demands of their customers, including those in the small
to medium-size business (SMB) market segment.
The timing of this migration is optimal, since many SMBs now recognize the threats they
face and realize that given their limited IT budgets and lack of security expertise, CSPs are
well positioned to protect them from cyberattacks.
While the opportunity for CSPs is significant, many are hesitant to make a move in this area
because they want to ensure they can address SMBs’ needs and maintain control of the
