Executive Briefing: What SMBs Need To Know About Next-Gen Endpoint Security

Published By: BlackBerry Cylance     Published Date: Sep 18, 2019
“More than 70 percent of cyber attacks target small businesses," according to National Cyber Security Alliance estimates. That’s not surprising when you consider how many small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) still rely on legacy AV tools despite their repeated failures to stop modern malware, ransomware, and zero-day attacks. Legacy AV is a lose-lose-lose proposition for SMBs. Attacks get through and cause damage. IT staff struggle to keep up with endless signature file updates from their AV vendors. End-users complain about sluggish system performance during scans and signature file updates. Fortunately, next-generation solutions are now available that protect endpoints with artificial intelligence (AI) rather than signatures. Ready to learn more? Then read the new eSecurity Planet executive brief sponsored by BlackBerry Cylance.

Security-as-a-Service in the Carrier Cloud: How CSPs Can Capture the SMB Opportunity

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Nov 13, 2018
The ongoing adoption of cloud computing by communications service providers (CSPs) continues to fundamentally reshape their business models and technology strategies on several levels. One such area that is garnering significant attention is the impact of the cloud on security services. This is because security services and the vital tools they encompass can be empowered through the adoption of a carrier cloud model. This, in turn, better positions CSPs to meet the demands of their customers, including those in the small to medium-size business (SMB) market segment. The timing of this migration is optimal, since many SMBs now recognize the threats they face and realize that given their limited IT budgets and lack of security expertise, CSPs are well positioned to protect them from cyberattacks. While the opportunity for CSPs is significant, many are hesitant to make a move in this area because they want to ensure they can address SMBs’ needs and maintain control of the service in a car

The Rise and Rise of FP&A

Published By: Anaplan     Published Date: Sep 07, 2018
For many years, large corporations have employed financial planning and analysis professionals to oversee budgeting, planning, forecasting and analysis. But the sea-change in technology, data and the competitive landscape is having a sustained impact on the FP&A function as it transforms from a predominately budgeting function to a forward-focussed strategic contributor. Now, as new cloud technology makes implementing modern FP&A quicker and cheaper, the function has become more accessible to medium-sized, or even smaller, organisations. There is a nascent but growing realisation that this corner of the finance function should be demanding more of an organisation’s attention, large or small, because having accurate and timely visibility, further into the future, could mean the difference between success and failure in today’s highly uncertain and volatile business environment.
