October isn’t just for pumpkin spiced lattes and Halloween. It’s also National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). In its seventeenth year, this year’s NCSAM theme, “Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart,” focuses on empowering businesses and workers to cultivate a culture of cybersecurity and modernize their networks for the cloud-managed, borderless enterprise.
New research finds that the COVID-19 shutdown has forced companies around the world to adopt cloud-based services and applications to enable remote work in our new reality. However, the accelerated shift to digital transformation has increased cybersecurity risk for organizations.
While some organizations are still struggling to secure these distributed devices and optimize their remote work experiences, Infoblox is enabling its more than 8,000 customers to “do their part” and “#BeCyberSmart” by leveraging Infoblox’s BloxOne DDI platform and BloxOne Threat Defense to modernize and secure their extended networks. Organizations are turning to Infoblox’s foundational security services to identify threats and surface security controls across their hybrid environments. Below are examples of how customers are proactively defending their extended infrastructures:
In healthcare, King Fahad Medical City depends on Infoblox to secure its modern networks, scale for sudden spikes in network activities, and enhance its cybersecurity posture for the COVID-19 shutdown and beyond.
Financial services giants like Aflac also rely on Infoblox to enhance their cyber threat intelligence capabilities and seamlessly integrate their security ecosystems.
In government, members of the National Association of State Procurement Officers can quickly deploy BloxOne Threat Defense to protect their hybrid networks.
Higher education institutions such as The American University in Cairo (AUC) chose Infoblox for its unique hybrid approach to remote learning and to manage its newly remote workforce, improve ROI, improve operational efficiency and more.
Critical infrastructure enterprises such as railroad operator Keio Corporation relies on Infoblox to secure thousands of computers on its network by detecting and mitigating threats that previously went undetected.
Retail organizations such as Detailresult Groep work with Infoblox to drive corporate innovation and protect its more than 22,000 remote users across 202 retail shops and branch offices in the Netherlands.
Global pressures resulting from remote work and digital transformation are real issues that aren’t going to disappear anytime soon. Now is the time for business leaders to rethink their legacy networking and security deployments to simplify their experience and take their cybersecurity to the next level.
