Theft is nothing new to banks. Since the beginning of the digital age, however, armed robbery has gone down. But this is not necessarily good news. Cyberattacks have been on the rise and are constantly evolving. And, unlike traditional money heists, consumer data breaches can bring greater financial devastation. Hackers can stay under the radar for months and get away with stealing millions or even billions. According to Fortunly, the authorities are not even aware of the full extent of damage some financial data heists have caused. For instance, the endgame of the 2003 cybersecurity incident involving Data Processors International remains a question mark to this day.

The critical role of Internet of Things infrastructure in connecting all of our devices

Article | February 20, 2020

The Internet of Things (IoT) will fundamentally change all industries, from agriculture to transportation to healthcare. In the next few decades, nearly everything in our world will become connected. But with that increased connectivity comes several concerns. For example, the IoT will generate immense amounts of data, which will put pressure on the Internet and force us to come up with more efficient ways to transmit and store this data. Perhaps chief among these concerns are the infrastructure considerations as other sectors grow thanks to the IoT. Below, we've outlined the future of IoT infrastructure management, along with some IoT infrastructure companies that are leading the way.

5 Essential Principles for Managing SD-Branch Security

Article | March 5, 2020

Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) is revolutionizing the way that local branches are managed. As we’ve previously pointed out in our article on 4 things you should know about SD-Branch, it is being used to enable faster cloud adoption and greatly improve centralized control over the systems running in branch offices. Unfortunately, these advantages also come with some downsides. As SD-WAN has developed in SD-Branch, the number of IoT and end-user devices connected to these networks has grown exponentially. This means that the surface attack area of the average SD-Branch setup has increased enormously over the past few years. At the same time, business-critical applications are now sharing more data than ever over broadband internet connections, exposing critical data to interception or disruption.
