It’s stating the obvious, but security has become a critical vulnerability in modern IT systems. The attack surface of IT networks has grown exponentially in the last few years as more devices are attached, more services are delivered and the use of private, public and hybrid cloud becomes more prevalent. Yet during this time, security solutions have largely maintained a traditional focus on defending the edge of the network with the likes of anti-DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service), IDS (Intrusion Detection Systems), IPS (Intrusion Prevention Systems) and Firewalls.
As recent news headlines have made apparent, the number of compromises of enterprise IT systems, be that through data theft, crypto viruses or hacking has increased exponentially but traditional security solutions are simply not keeping up. The next-generation approach to IT security is a broad field, but Eurotech has decided to focus on the elements of security that are closest to the infrastructure tier and address the challenges of monitoring and controlling east west data flows, the need for at-rest encryption and micro-segmentation and the ability to virtually instantly recover backups in the event of data coming under a ransom attack.
