Implementing effective network security that monitors and prevents risky behaviors is the responsibility of the IT department. The choice of security solutions, and the update policy to manage new threats must be tailored to the needs of the organization and extend out to cover mobile users – clearly a major source of risk.
The latest generation of solutions are making life increasingly easier in this respect. For example opting for a managed service option provides on-demand security for office-based and mobile workers and ensures the very latest updates are all in place, to guarantee optimum security and meet the agreed SLA.
However it is unlikely that a single solution will provide all the protection required and organizations must ensure they have a multi-layered approach – often mixing service and product based solutions that can deliver high-end security functionality for Web, e-mail and mobile storage devices, to mitigate against risk and protect the business - keeping your intellectual property close, and the threats to it even closer.
