IT Security pain points

IT Security and Threat Protection. We feel your your pain.

The increase in the number and type of cyber attacks and data breaches has sharply raised the profile of IT Security and Threat Protection for businesses. For those not working in IT, cyber security may seem like a relatively new phenomenon, but for experienced IT directors and managers the threat has built from a tidal swell to a major flood.

Research amongst our customers and vendor partners demonstrates that high-profile attacks such as those on FIFA, British Airways, Under Armour etc., and malware like WannaCry, NotPetya and GitHub have pushed the issue front-of-mind, stimulating thoughts on what the main pressure or pain points are for IT decision makers.

AVR has analysed the data and identified four key areas that are driving threat protection investment decisions.

Lookout Mobile Security

How much risk are you taking with your mobiles?

Mobile infection rates rose in the last twelve months and will continue to do so as cyber criminals are increasingly turn their focus to mobile devices as these endpoints have little or no protection on them. The assumption is mobile devices are safe, have built in security or are enrolled in an MDM (Mobile Device Management) solution securing the device. This assumption is wrong. There are a wealth of threats targeted at mobile devices, such as man-in-the-middle attacks, data leakage, malicious apps, out of date OS. To protect against these you need to understand what risks your mobile devices are prone to.

To help assess how vulnerable your business may be, AVR, in association with mobile security specialists Lookout, is offering for a limited period, a complimentary Mobile Risk Assessment with the opportunity to win a Spa Weekend break in our exciting prize draw.
