With the aim to focus on the emerging cybersecurity challenges and how public sector organization can bolster their cybersecurity framework, Tech Observer magazine in association with VMware and SISL, organised a special webinar focused on “Building Resilient Security for On-Prem IT infra.”
The ongoing healthcare pandemic has accelerated the digitalisation of various sectors, including the public sector, BFSI, and small and medium businesses. For most of them, the existing IT infrastructures became a great enabler of ensuring business continuity and efficient service delivery.
However, digitalisation has also increased attack surface, and growing heterogeneity across IT infrastructure makes ‘visibility' challenging. That is why enterprise security teams struggle to get their hands on the endpoint data they need to investigate and proactively hunt for abnormal behaviour properly.
Security and IT professionals need a way to dive deeper into the data to make their judgments. They need solutions that can offer continuous visibility in offline, air-gapped and disconnected environments.
During an hour-long presentation and live demo, Neha Dhyani, Senior Solution Engineer, SBU, VMware India, presented a broad overview of cybersecurity trends and explained how public sector organizations could create robust security for on-prem IT infra with the help of VMware Carbon Black.
“Having complete visibility across an enterprise IT environment is one of the first pillars of improving security. Without visibility, no solution will be able to detect what's happening in an environment and the critical incident may get missed,” she said, adding that VMware Carbon Black addresses these challenges.
“The On-Prem Carbon Black EDR solution gives the customers the flexibility to the incident investigation and a complete visibility on what's happening within their environment,” she said.
She said that the security team must be empowered with the right tools and technology that can increase their visibility from edge to data centre. “Security is a complex subject for most of the security team. And that's why Carbon Black offers simple, automated, but robust solutions that an in-house SOC team can easily manage,” she said.
