Niagara Networks to Provide Agile Deployment for In-line Cybersecurity to a Major Middle East Service Provider

Niagara Networks | July 08, 2020

Niagara Networks , the Open Visibility Platform pioneer, today announced that a prominent Middle East service provider has selected a Niagara Networks solution to serve as an agile deployment point for in-line cybersecurity solutions in its network edge data centers to protect its operations and customers. The Niagara Networks appliances enable direct flow of network traffic of varying rates—up to 100 gigabits per second—to flow through the cybersecurity systems with the ability to bypass them based on various conditions, including power failure or the security systems not being available. "Service Providers simultaneously need to ensure the highest levels of security and performance, and they need agility to adapt to the latest challenges," said Stuart Howe, sales director EMEI, Niagara Networks. "Niagara Networks uniquely provides the agility service providers need with the performance and reliability designed for the most demanding networks in the world." In each of the Provider's data centers, the Niagara Networks appliances primarily operate as a bypass switch, enabling plugging in any cybersecurity or networking solution for in-line processing of network traffic with the capacity to quickly bypass the solution as necessary. The bypass capability also enables seamless installation or maintenance of the in-line solutions without any disruption to the network. Niagara Networks bypass technology enables  NetOps and SecOps teams to upscale network and security design and implementation across the country.  The Niagara solution enabled highly flexible configurations for long-range fiber optic lines, thus saving CAPEX on additional network elements, while simplifying operational rollout of Advanced Threat Protection platforms at 100Gbps wire speeds.

Ask your average customer how much snail mail he wants to receive from the companies with whom he does business, and the answer will likely be "zero." This is especially true for people under 30, although the evidence suggests that even older clients are moving away from their preference for paper-based documents and into the digital age.

GetApp Annual Data Security Report Reveals Information Security a Top Concern for Businesses

GetApp | September 29, 2021

GetApp, a recommendation engine that helps SMBs make informed software purchasing decisions, released findings from its 2021 Data Security Report. The results reveal that, regardless of industry, information security incidents have become more of a targeted threat for businesses, increasing in amount and efficacy. Of all the security incidents identified by over 900 surveyed employees at U.S. businesses, the three most threatening incidents were: increasingly severe ransomware attacks, more effective phishing schemes, and rampant reusing of passwords. Respondents reported phishing emails have nearly tripled in effectiveness over the past two years. Phishing emails are rapidly becoming more difficult to spot and thus far more destructive. Over the past year, ransomware attacks have increased by 25%. Ransom demands were significantly higher than average for businesses in specific industries, such as banking and financial services and construction, with higher payouts. The report found that password reuse is strongly associated with higher incidences of security breaches. Reported account takeovers were three times as common among people who reuse passwords as those who don’t. Data security threats are becoming more targeted to individual victims, whether that’s a phishing scheme aimed at a specific person or ransomware attacks on a particular company.Companies must redouble security training efforts and fortify their networks to protect against today’s increasingly sophisticated cybercriminals. Zach Capers, senior analyst at GetApp. Alarmingly, 23% of the IT security managers surveyed say their company doesn’t have protocols in place to report a suspected cyberattack and 33% don’t have a formal cybersecurity incident response plan.
