In today’s interconnected, always on, and mobile world, information is processed by a large variety of hardware and software systems, such as desktop computers, mobile devices, applications, servers, IoT devices, storage systems and more. It is vital to protect this information against both deliberate and accidental threats and vulnerabilities. Add to that the complexity of their interoperability and keeping those systems accessible to those who need the information, it is easy to see why network management is such a key aspect of any modern business.
It’s also about establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an Information Security Management System (ISMS). Effective information security assures that the organization’s assets are safe and thereby acts as a business enabler.
