When most of us hear about data breaches a few high-profile examples pop into our mind and we worry about the safety of our personal information. While sites like SC Magazine’s Data Breach Blog can scare you with how many lower-profile breaches happen every day, an even scarier thought is the number worldwide that we don’t hear about because of lack of disclosure laws.
Now think beyond the worry of whether your own data is safe and imagine being responsible for the personal information of millions of people.
Many corporate and government organizations are fending off ongoing targeted and purposeful attacks that create constantly shifting threats.
"The number of attacks is staggering, and expanding at an astounding rate. In the past year alone, we prevented 1.06 trillion intrusion events in 249 countries. That's not a typo: 1.06 trillion intrusion events. In one year," noted Michael Dell in regard to how we at Dell secure and protect data for companies of all sizes.
In this environment, standard security protocols do not adequately protect the modern IT ecosystem. Due to tech trends such as BYOD and cloud computing, the traditional approach of building a single security defense tower leaves myriad access points on the perimeter of an organization vulnerable to attack. Today’s organizations need a security approach that provides protection from the network to users and ultimately end points and the cloud.
With this set of powerful security tools, Dell’s customers have been able to mitigate risks, and, as a result, accelerate their business results. There are multiple ways to secure an organization’s IT infrastructure from inside-out and outside-in. Dell’s IT security vision and extensive portfolio of solutions give customers the power to solve their biggest vulnerability and compliance challenges today. One method that our customers have seen success with is to prevent and protect against attacks from the perimeter. Here are just three real-world examples:
“We consider our firewalls to be one of the most important parts of our IT solution,” said Stacey Arellano, IT program manager, Massage Envy Spa. “We needed firewalls that provided the level of security that we required for a national brand, but were still affordable for owners of small or medium-sized businesses. Because all of our sites now use a standardized Dell solution, we fully understand all of the technologies throughout our infrastructure so we can mitigate risks.”
Each of these businesses are growing and innovating in a world where BYOD and cloud computing have opened up new access points for cybercriminals to infiltrate and sidestep static security solutions. The hackers aren’t going away, but Dell matches their determination by providing protection for every vulnerability from the end user to the data center to the cloud.
