Help your customers protect their data and apps

Today’s business climate is a keen reminder of the importance of maintaining business operations no matter what. Reacting to security vulnerabilities, breaches or outages caused by malware or ransomware is difficult at the best of times. Right now, we know that “bad actors” are taking advantage of IT teams scrambling to adapt to the “new normal” remote and other working arrangements.

This, added to increasing application complexity, distributed services, and rapid Software as a Service (SaaS) and cloud-based solution growth, means the need to easily visualise, analyse and govern network communications is critical.

How to identify opportunities in your existing customers:

Many of your customers will already have continuity (and prevention) plans in place to deal with cyberthreats, however it's still top of mind for most organisations. 

Questions you can ask your customers to identify opportunities include: 

  • Do you have visibility into how if/how your applications are secured today? What visualisation tools do you use?
  • Do you have a clear view of your data centre’s security posture down to a per-VM or application level?
  • Would improving the process of implementing security policies in your virtualised environment be something of value to your business?
  • Is security or compliance slowing down IT operations?
  • Are you certain your organisation implements security rules at a per-VM level (microsegmentation) and not just perimeter or network security?
  • Do you use VDI and if yes, how do you secure the environment down to the per user level?
