The Case for End-To-End Security Solutions For Mid-Market Firms

In a digital business, processes are rarely, if ever, confined to the infrastructure of the company. Customers and employees engage across numerous digital channels and dozens of third-party relationships critical to operations. IT leaders must rapidly evolve to protect their firms’ brands, strengthen their reputations, and build customer trust. To do so, security and productivity should go hand-in-hand, and that means a well-defined policy framework, metrics that demonstrate business value, and a business-aligned strategy that ties all this together.

The Balanced Security Imperative

Balanced security requires firms to transition from treating privacy and data security as compliance requirements to one that champions privacy and uses its technology prowess to differentiate the brand. Any misstep with or changes to the IT infrastructure can and will exacerbate complexity, which is why building a balanced security strategy is so important. A balanced security strategy negates complexity by keeping up with the pace of technological change as well as industry disruption and evolving regulatory compliance. In March 2019, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the evolving security trends and technology needed to protect and enable employees. Our study found that empowering employees while adhering to security protocols improves employee productivity. Forrester conducted an online survey of 887 senior business and IT decision makers to explore this topic.

Managing Security Risk and Compliance in a Challenging Landscape

Security leaders have been in front of boards and executive committees long enough to know that security metrics that simply portray statistics from monitoring tools, or count the number of malware attacks, add relatively little value to strategy and budget decisions. Protecting sensitive customer and company data shouldn’t be just a compliance obligation, it should be a business imperative. This is exactly why the right technology partners will help push security, risk, and compliance objectives forward. In March 2019, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the evolving security trends and technology needed to protect and enable employees. Our study found that empowering employees while adhering to security protocols improves employee productivity.

The State of Email Security 2020

Global business is interspersed with a diversity of industrial sectors, united by a single, common communication thread that is key to any business: email connectivity.

At the close of 2019, many IT and IT security decision makers were planning to bolster their security posture with protections at the email gateway, within their organizations to protect employees and customers, and beyond their organizations’ four walls to uphold brand trust. These protections are still underway; in fact, they are more critical than ever.

At the same time, comprehensive data from Mimecast Threat Center indicates a severely negative impact to businesses in the first half of 2020, and experts predict we’ll see these attacks for months to come. Threat actors are relying heavily on impersonation and brand exploitation to take advantage of the uncertainty during the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The usual email and web security defenses are no longer good enough; to prevent and protect your business against threat actors now and in the future, it’s critical to integrate security awareness training as well as to protect your online brand.

Forrester Report: Customer Data Maturity Powers The Modern Enterprise

With the growing importance of customer insights in organizations, the role of analytics to extract insight from customer data and embed it back into organizational processes is at the forefront of business transformation. This increased profile has elevated the customer insights role from data geeks feeding the marketing funnel to critical change agents and strategic business partners. It has also made it crucial for companies to have a coherent and consistently executed customer data strategy. In order to seize the opportunity presented by this shift in data’s role, companies must plot a deliberate strategic course — beginning with a clear-eyed assessment of their current capabilities and needs.

In late 2018, Tealium commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of customer data strategies today. We found that very few companies can claim to have mastered customer data today, but those who achieve the highest levels of maturity enjoy significant benefits and support for their business initiatives.
