Information classified as confidential is taking an ever-increasing share in the digital communication of information. In this context, business partners and customers trust that messages, documents and sensitive data can be transmitted and stored securely. At the same time, companies want to make data and information accessible from anywhere. Cloud solutions are often used for this purpose, which do not stand up to the high security and compliance requirements.
With increasing networking, the importance of IT security and the requirement for a protection zone concept are growing. Cross-infrastructure IT security is a considerable challenge for many companies. Perimeter security, virus scanners and firewalls increase security, but are no longer sufficient by far. An overarching technical IT security concept is also needed to detect and respond to threats. A good infrastructure design can prevent many attacks in advance.
