When you review the different recommendations around SD-WAN requirements from analysts and other technology experts, security is often missing from the bill of requirements.

Outsmarting the Next Ransomware with Advanced Threat Protections

Ransomware has recently reasserted itself into the public eye in a big way. The May cyberattack carried out by the malware WannaCry was one of the worst ransomware attacks ever, affecting over 300,000 computers operating MS Windows around the world. Unfortunately, the attack has once again demonstrated that far too many organizations do not have an effective security protocol in place, or do not take it seriously until after disaster strikes.
