Welcome to the 12th issue of our quarterly e-newsletter, The Monitor. Here you’ll find the latest news/developments about Network Box USA, some important things to think about, and an up-to-the-minute look at global Internet threats.
Our In the News section spotlights a number of exciting announcements, with the main highlight being when Network Box USA was named winner of the 2012 Global Excellence Awards (sponsored by Info Security Products Guide) in the Security Products and Solutions for Finance and Banking category. I flew out to San Francisco to accept this prestigious industry award which further validates Z-Scan as the foremost anti-malware system in the market. I’m also pleased to welcome Chad Walter as our newly appointed Director of Channel Sales. Chad will play an integral role in actively growing our channel marketing program.
Both Credit Union Times and PC Today have kindly incorporated my viewpoints on the topic of IPv6 and what this means for your organization. Another story in PC Today focuses on how to prevent cloud security holes. Several months ago, Corp! ran a story titled “Security Risks in Cloud Computing – a Few Words to the Wise”, in which some of my recommendations were featured. I hope you’ll find them helpful. Lastly, check out another posting in Credit Union Times, which talks about securing the credit union network for telecommuters.
Things to Think About provides pertinent information on strengthening your cloud defenses and how to prevent cloud security holes, while our Brief Case segment showcases CoNetrix, a full-service computer networking, security and compliance firm. The company primarily serves financial institutions – including some 400 community banks – as well as enterprises requiring a high level of security in their operations.
Our guest columnist in Outside the Box is Steven Wolford, Director of Information Security for 6Fusion, a Network Box strategic Cloud partner. Steven’s write-up centers on the state of information security and how you can accurately determine which security controls are of relevance to your organization.
Let me know if you found this current issue of The Monitor to be a good read and, more importantly, if there are any specific topics you’d like to see featured in future issues. Until then, have a productive week ahead.
