Why security matters
for every business?
There are at least three core reasons as to why IT security has become a centralised issue for all organisations.
- The cyber threat landscape has evolved – and continues to evolve – dramatically and dynamically. A recent McAfee survey estimates that cyber-crime is costing the global economy as much as $600 billion annually and with new threats emerging all the time, security isn’t something you can cut corners with.
- Even the smallest organisations are operating increasingly complex IT infrastructures, with large numbers of applications and endpoint devices to protect, and new users and devices continually being added.
- The wider regulatory and legal landscapes governing organisations’ IT security are increasingly demanding. Typically, the requirements of such regulations are twofold: they require specific security standards and protocols to be implemented; and they require accurate audit trails demonstrating those standards and protocols.
You need to protect your organisation and this needs to be delivered within the confines of a limited budget and an increasingly small pool of talent. The boardroom question is: how cost-effectively can these needs be met? MLR Networks offers a number of security solutions to its client base.
