Today’s fast-paced, hypercompetitive marketplace requires organizations to open their networks to customers, suppliers, and business partners. This same openness, however, brings security risks that must be properly managed.
The frequency and sophistication of network attacks is growing with the use of automated hacking tools that can inflict catastrophic damage in just a few hours. Left undetected or improperly corrected, vulnerabilities provide an open door for 99 percent of all network attacks. Despite best efforts by IT, assets continue to be accessed, crippled or even rendered inoperable by unauthorized individuals, worms, or other threats. The consequences for anything less than a rigorous dedication to security are great. Outages caused by hackers and viruses cost businesses millions in actual revenue, and even more in lost reputation, negative brand impact, and diminished consumer confidence each year.
Presage understands that keeping up with security is a full-time job for any organization. Software patches are released almost daily as new vulnerabilities are discovered, cyber crimes are detected, and virus definitions are updated. Computer hackers are continually probing networks and servers for any vulnerability to exploit. Monitoring for patterns in network traffic to detect suspicious activity requires around-the-clock dedication, expertise, and sophistication. For companies that don’t have security as a core competency, building the infrastructure, staffing and personnel, and maintaining a practice can be a heavy investment, fraught with risk.
