Digital Security Summit 2017 – Sonicwall

Security has become top priority for most CIOs and CISOs worldwide, according to most leading analysts. This has happened in the wake of the growing number of ransomware attacks, high-profile data breaches, and the digital transformation drive undertaken by most enterprises today. On top of that, proliferation of social media, mobile devices, and IoT have increased the security threat vectors exponentially in both number and complexity.

Enterprise can’t continue using the same static security solutions to combat these threat vectors. They need to follow a more proactive approach and treat security as a business priority by aligning it with their business functions. They can’t afford to follow a siloed approach to security anymore, where security is the IT department’s problem (till the time a major data breach occurs and disrupts operations!).

What’s needed are integrated security solutions that can provide next-gen protection across all channels, be it your network, mobile devices, the web, or email.

To find out more about cutting-edge security solutions and how your organization can benefit from them, you’re invited to the Digital Security Summit--a first of its kind conference for CIOs and CISOs, which provides a compelling mix of strategic knowledge and hand-on demos of cutting edge security solutions.
