A security operation center (SOC) provides not only an extra set of eyes for 24x7 monitoring on cloud services but also the security knowhow and guidance for resolving potential security incidents detected. SOC as a Service, as the naming suggests, delivers the aforementioned security measures as an outsourced service, delivering the highest level of security posture for organizations with limited time, budget, or trained staff needed for an in-house 24x7 SOC deployment.
Branch office communication networks are changing to deliver cloud services for workers. Communications service providers can meet these needs with SD-WAN services powered by Session Smart Routing technology from 128 Technology running on Intel® processor-based white box servers from Lanner.
As more ships are being connected to broadband internet through either VSAT bands, L-band or 3G/4G/LTE mobile phone networks, there has been a significant rise in the demand for integrated gateway solutions capable of not only managing vessel voice and data communications but also mitigating cyber risks.
The IoT era has ushered in not only constantly increasing demands for connectivity but also growing concerns about tenacious and complex attacks. DDoS attacks today target not only connection bandwidth, but multiple devices that make up an enterprise’s existing security infrastructure, such as firewall/IPS devices and awide variety of applications such as HTTP, HTTPS, VoIP, DNS and SMTP.
Nowadays most enterprises and organizations have fortified themselves with some network protection measures, such as basic encryptions, anti-virus and web-filtering. However, as cyber attacks are constantly evolving and becoming more innovative than ever, these conventional protections are encountering their limits against the sophisticated cyber intrusions like social engineering, zero day attack and advanced persistent threat. Therefore, cyber security measures also have to evolve and the answer is next-generation threat prevention firewall.
SD-WAN is one of the most applied enterprise networking models among SDN applications. According to IHS market research, there will be approximately 45% of enterprises in North America to adopt SD-WAN in the next two years. The era of “software-defined everything” is happening in real-time and SD-WAN is already a booming sector.
Nowadays, small and medium enterprises are relying more and more on smart cloud services in order to stay connected anytime and anywhere. Indeed, cloud-based service solutions provide SMEs the flexibility and scalability for connections among their branches and client devices, at a lower investment in physical hardware. However, while enjoying the convenience and flexibility of cloud service solutions, the SMB communication networks are also exposed to cyber threats and are sometimes the victims to cyber attacks as well.
