With most business operations and communications taking place digitally, cybersecurity is crucial to all organisations regardless of size. A network security solution that grows with your business and adapts to meet your changing requirements is essential for seamless cybersecurity.
1. Changing threats
Cyber threats are constantly evolving and becoming more sophisticated. A scalable, flexible network security infrastructure allows your organisation to adapt to new threats and deploy additional security measures as needed without disrupting existing systems.
2. Growing data volumes
Scalable cybersecurity solutions can effectively handle the increasing volume of data without compromising on security.
3. Business growth
As your organisation grows, so does its digital footprint. Your network security service must accommodate your growing infrastructure and requirements.
4. Bring your own device (BYOD) usage
Allowing employees to use their own devices for work appears cost effective and straightforward. However, this can create huge security issues, not least because other people may have access to the devices used. An effective, scalable network security system allows employees to connect mobile phones or laptops to a secure VPN, with access to your systems restricted to devices which use this product. (There are many other issues to consider – please read our article on the pros and cons of BYOD.)
Many industries and regions have specific cybersecurity regulations and compliance requirements. A scalable cybersecurity framework, including network security, enables compliance controls and measures to be implemented as needed.
6. Emerging technologies
The rapid adoption of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and blockchain introduces new challenges and security considerations. Adaptable network security and cybersecurity tools enable organisations to adopt emerging technologies with compatible security measures.
‘Scalability and simplicity are key issues involved with creating effective network security and cybersecurity solutions,’ says Eric Hughes, founder of EMH technology in Hitchin. ‘It’s important to provide a user-friendly service tailored to the business operation. Cybersecurity needs to work for the people involved as well as the technology. This is why we have partnered with Nord to provide VPN services, securing employees wherever they are working.
