To help organizations adapt to the new realities of the emerging digital marketplace and the related threats targeting digital businesses, IBM Security just announced that their X-Force Threat Management (XFTM) Framework is now available as a Threat Management-as-a-Service offering. We are also pleased to announce that this news also includes that Fortinet was selected to be a key security partner in this new offering. Fortinet and IBM have been strategic partners for years, and this new XFTM/Fortinet partnership further strengthens that relationship.
Unless you’ve been entirely off the grid, you have probably heard that a number of high-profile organizations have recently been targeted by ransomware. It’s part of a growing trend that has the potential to impact large numbers of people, with potentially devastating consequences.
The volume of cyberattacks is growing at an unprecedented rate, increasing as much as nearly 80% for some organizations during the final quarter of 2017. One reason for this acceleration in the attack cycle is that in order for malware to succeed today it needs to spread further and faster than even before. This allows cybercriminals to stay a step ahead of new efforts by vendors to improve their delivery of updated signatures and patches.
Watch the video in this post to hear from Fortinet’s Troy Roberts, VP of Enhanced Technologies, as he discusses the challenges facing healthcare organizations in 2018 and how to overcome them.
We live in exciting times. Digital Transformation (DX) is the integration of digital technology into all areas of the business. This is resulting in fundamental changes both to how businesses operate and how they deliver value to their customers. Organizations are looking to expand their market, and digital transformation is one of the key strategies they are utilizing to achieve growth as well as associated business objectives.
A Conversation with Fortinet’s CTO and co-Founder, Michael Xie
Organizations are rapidly adopting mobility, IoT, smart devices, and multi-cloud computing to meet new networking requirements. These changes are increasing the speed and the volume of the data and traffic that networks need to process. These network resources are also being constantly added, removed, or connected to each other, keeping the network’s attack surface constantly changing. The result is we are also creating complex networks that are difficult to track and secure.
Digital Transformation Without an Equivalent Security Transformation is Leaving Organizations More Vulnerable 2018 is lining up to be the year of Digital Transformation. Just about every organization looking to remain viable in the growing digital marketplace has some sort of digital transformation in progress or one in the planning stages for this year. These projects range from implementing basic applications to better interact with online consumers, to converging OT and IT networks, or even pushing their entire infrastructure to the cloud.
The Mobile Security and Managed Security Services Zone area that we’re setting in up in our booth at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) places Fortinet at the center of one of the most innovation-intensive sectors of Communication Service Providers (CSPs). The dawning era of 5G is about much more than speeds and availability.
