Connecting your organisation to an un-trusted network is risky, especially if that connection is via the Internet. Technical Adept Hackers, Script Kiddies, Malicious Programmers, Worms and Viruses are all waiting to scour though your informational assets and negatively impact your productivity.
The speed and frequency of today’s threats and their ability to propagate across an unsecured corporate network is unprecedented.
Organisations must constantly stay up to date with new methods of ensuring that the data and the network it resides on are adequately protected. Security must be fully applied to both inbound and outbound communications, at all layers from the perimeter of the organisation to the connected network devices.
Employees are equation critical consideration. Often singled out as the weakest link in a security strategy, organisations must take steps to ensure their employees act responsibly when accessing the network and corporate resources (email, mobile phone, laptop, PC, Internet resources, CDs, memory sticks) in order to mitigate the risk of losing critical data or damage the corporate image.
To address these challenges, organisations require strong, workable policies and procedures, enabled by robust and effective technological solutions. Regular reviews are needed to ensure that the level of security for the core networked infrastructure is appropriate for current requirement and mitigates the risk of being adversely affected by an internally or externally generated threat.
2e2 will work with organisations to design and deploy tailored security implementations, involving best of breed products. This will ensure the right level of network connectivity whilst ensuring unwanted or un-trusted traffic does not traverse the perimeter. With services via the Internet now becoming mission critical to business, 2e2 can also provide multi tier and/or highly available perimeter security ensuring high levels of security and fault tolerance.
