Die Kontrolle zurück gewinnen: Sicherheit steigern, Zugang zu Applikationen erlauben und dabei das Unternehmen schützen

Während die Arbeitnehmer mit neuen und kreativen Zugängen das Web nutzen, kämpfen die Unternehmen damit, die Kontrolle über das Unternehmensnetzwerk zu behalten. Gleichzeitig müssen sie sicherstellen, dass Mitarbeiter, Geschäftspartner und andere Akteure auf relevante Funktionalitäten sicher zugreifen können. Applikationen drängen in unüberschaubarer Anzahl ins Netz und täglich kommen weitere dazu. Verkompliziert wird diese Entwicklung durch die Tatsache, dass „gute“ von „bösen“ Applikationen nicht mehr klar unterschieden werden können. Einige der Applikationen wurden für Business-Zwecke konzipiert und sind darauf ausgelegt, Sicherheitsrisiken zu minimieren und die Produktivität zu maximieren. Am anderen Ende der Palette stehen Applikationen, die Daten stehlen, Computer beschädigen und die Netzwerkaktivitäten unterbrechen. Eine Vielzahl an Applikationen fällt in den Graubereich zwischen diesen beiden Extremen. Wir zeigen wieso es sich für Unternehmen lohnt genauer in den Webverkehr zu schauen und damit Ihre Sicherheit deutlich zu erhöhen. Download 197kb PDF
