External cyber security threats to remote offices and branch offices (ROBO) present a significant danger for a major network security disaster not only at that site but also to the larger IT infrastructure of an enterprise. This is not only operationally disruptive but costly for firms to weather. The solution is a comprehensive approach for companies from SMBs to Fortune 500 firms to adopt remote site management solutions for mission-critical networks.
Medium and large companies across the globe now have IT infrastructure that is distributed amongst ROBOs as well as the cloud that demands heightened security practices. C-Suite executives now increasingly demand Chief Information Security Officers (CISO) to help enhance IT support functions especially when it comes to information security and potential cyber security threats. These executives are expected to play a strong role as a visionary with an innovative mindset, especially when dealing with challenges such as security measures for remote business sites.
Challenges are amplified at remote sites due to the difficulty of monitoring servers, network devices, and other IT infrastructure for changes which can lead to downtime or, worse yet, a data breach. Far too often what is out of sight is also out of mind at remote work sites. However, there are also IT teams that are sweating bullets looking for a solution to their concerns about how to monitor them, because they know that branch offices can be a jump-off point for hackers to gain a toehold into the larger system.
