Making the Midsize Enterprise Secure
Midsize enterprise organizations are under constant attack from hackers, but limited budgets and resources make it difficult to defend against these threats. In fact, 21% of midsize enterprise organizations report security resources as the biggest skills gap within their department.
Your business isn’t structured like everyone else’s. You have to protect not only your headquarters, but a warehouse, some remote office and a workforce that is more mobile than ever before. And with your limited resources, you need a solution that is easy to deploy, manage and update and doesn’t create more work for your already maxed-out team.
You want to work with a vendor who not only understands your challenges, but truly cares about the success of your business. You need a security vendor that offers a robust portfolio of solutions to protect your employees and data wherever business takes them.
At the heart of it, you’re worried about protecting your business from the threats you know and the attacks yet to be discovered. You face the additional challenge of protecting people and data outside the walls of your headquarters. But a run-of-the-mill enterprise solution comes with a bunch of bells and whistles you don’t need, and frankly can’t manage. Security solutions should be designed to fit your business, not the other way around.
SD-WAN & VPN
As any business with multiple locations, yours need a way to guarantee that each site has the performance necessary to make effective use of VoIP, video, and other business-critical applications. An SD-WAN solution offers dynamic WAN selection to ensure high performance for every site while stabilizing Internet service costs at the same time. You also need a way for remote employees to securely access sensitive data through a VPN connection without making them jump through hoops.
You need visibility into every part of your business. But with employees traveling to every corner of the country and remote locations around the world, it can be difficult to make sense of all the data you acquire. Additionally, as you add new security platforms into your business, it can mean juggling multiple management interfaces. But working with one provider to cover multiple security needs can decrease the number of UIs your team needs to learn and manage.
Ease of Use
With employees and offices outside the protective cover of your headquarters, you need solutions that are easy for you to deploy and employees to use. From firewalls to Wi-Fi access points to multi-factor authentication, the easier they are for you to deploy and for your employees to use, the more likely it is that your business is secure.
