Any modern technology conversation either begins or ends with the topic of security. Ransomware, Viruses, and targeted social engineering attacks are daily topics on every available news outlet; constantly evolving and changing. As Technology specialists, our job is to protect our customers, educating to the best of our ability the threat landscape and what can be done to best prepare. Because, as we all know… it’s not if, it’s when.
These constant conversations brought the internal discussion at Emerge to the prevalent need for a new approach to security. When we look at security, it's not just a firewall, it's not just intrusion detection, it's not just virtual private networking, and it is not just multifactor authentication. Security isn't any one item that Emerge, our partners or competitors sell. Although Emerge services, products and technologies definitely play an important role, network security is more comprehensive; it has to be. The fact of the matter is, no security solution can protect against everything.
Through many meetings, the Emerge team concluded that the best and most thorough way to approach security was to view security as what it is, a system. A network security system, a collection of network-connected devices, technologies, and best practices that can work in complementary ways to provide security to information assets. Through this process, we now have the Emerge Security Portfolio, what we feel to be a perfect balance between security and usability. A holistic approach to protecting, detecting, and remediating security threats faster than ever. In the end, the Emerge Security Portfolio is the result of intense vetting exercises combined with proven people and process to deliver a comprehensive solution aimed at protecting your business.
Simple to follow and easy to navigate, the Emerge Security Portfolio allows Emerge customers and prospects to follow along three levels. Each level building upon the last, but not necessary to complete one level before implementing security protection from other levels that fit business needs.
