The Importance of Having a CISO Strategy for Small Business IT Teams

Avast CISO, Jaya Baloo, Discusses Cybersecurity Solutions for Today’s Businesses

One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to businesses. Some may have a full IT team on staff. Others may not, and many are limited by resources and budget. With cyberattacks targeting small to mid-sized businesses at an all-time high, it’s critical for IT consultants and service providers to be having those conversations with SMBs about enterprise grade security protection, tailored exactly to their needs.

In an interview with Richard Tubb, the IT Business Growth Expert, Jaya Baloo covers:

  • The best ways to present cybersecurity to SMBs and explain its importance

  • The biggest cyber threats faced by SMBs today and the best defense strategy

  • How SMBs with limited budgets and/or IT resources can still stay protected

  • The importance of a response plan in case an SMB is impacted by a cyber attack

  • The future of the cybersecurity landscape and the role of emerging technologies

Navigating the Evolving Network Perimeter

While legacy security applications did their part in the past, they no longer serve an increasingly cloud-powered digital world. Even encryption alone isn’t enough and has been used by cyberattackers to conceal and deliver threats.

  • Find out how and why encryption is a security measure that could easily backfire

  • Learn about the new alternative to on-premise hardware and firewalls

SideScanning™ – How the Engine that Powers Orca Security Works

With no on-prem environments to protect, Orca was free to create a cloud-native security platform without the constraints of agents and network scanners.

Delivered as SaaS, Orca’s SideScanning™ technology reads your cloud configuration and workloads’ runtime block storage out-of-band, giving you workload-level security across AWS, Azure, and GCP - without the gaps in coverage and operational costs of agents.

But how does this radical new approach work? Download this technical brief to gain a better understanding of:

  • Traditional methods such as agent-based, authenticated, and unauthenticated scanning, as well as cloud security posture managers (CSPMs)
  • Orca’s 5-minute onboarding process
  • The power of addressing both the control plane and data plane at once
  • The scanning process for vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, malware, lateral movement risk, exploitable keys, weak passwords, and unsecured sensitive data
  • How Orca prioritizes risk based on environmental context

Your Guide to Developing a Multi-Cloud Data Strategy

Organizations today are adopting cloud-based applications, platforms, and services to achieve greater elasticity and faster delivery times in today’s app-driven world.

As the name suggests, adopting a multi-cloud strategy means using multiple cloud services from different providers, with workloads spread out across cloud environments. While most businesses require rapid and flexible access to computing, storage, and networking resources, not all enterprises are pursuing multi-cloud for the same reasons.

Of course, not every team, business function, or application workload will have similar requirements in regards to performance, privacy, security, or geographic reach for its cloud environments. Whatever the impetus, companies must build a culture that puts data front and center in a world where every company is becoming a data company. This leads us to our main points: understanding key data challenges and getting your data ready for multi-cloud environments.

Best Practices for Managing Risks in Your Cloud Deployment

IT teams are embracing the cloud for its scalability, reliability, flexibility, and rapid deployment capabilities, helping them achieve performance and cost-savings goals.

According to Gartner, by the end of 2019, we’ll see, “30 percent of the 100 largest vendors’ new software investments will have shifted from cloud-first to cloud-only.”

But for enterprises transitioning from on-prem architectures, a move to the cloud opens up new and uncharted territory when it comes to managing risk. Complex, distributed resources in the cloud call for an update to the standard risk management and security approach.

For security teams tasked with securing cloud environments, holding on to pre-cloud tools and mindset is no longer going to work, as the challenges and tools needed to secure cloud environments are different from what was required to secure pre-cloud architectures. Even worse, copying pre-cloud solutions means that the drawbacks of pre-cloud architectures are brought into the cloud world. Only by fully embracing the cloud and its values can enterprises take full advantage of its benefits.
