Every time a company changes hosts, expands their current network, or even opens a new department, their infrastructure and network become a little bit more vulnerable
Suwanee, GA (Vocus) July 30, 2009
According to Guidance Consulting's most recent research, an estimated 33 percent of networks have some form of vulnerability that opens them up to an average of tens of thousands of dollars in lost productivity and customer confidence. Most of the time, this vulnerability is the result of oversight rather than a real lack of concern for security measures.
"Every time a company changes hosts, expands their current network, or even opens a new department, their infrastructure and network become a little bit more vulnerable," says Ronald Gottilla, senior consultant at Guidance Consulting. "Oftentimes, they are so caught up in making this new department or expansion work within the framework of the business that they forget they need to make it work within the framework of infrastructure security, as well."
Guidance Consulting has offered a wide range of support options for over 15 years, and this newest department is all about staying on the cutting edge of technology. By centering resources on whatever the newest, hottest vulnerability threats are, Guidance Consulting is able to offer even better services to its clients. The result saves money, saves time, and offers more secure information for everyone involved.
Despite the fact that information technology is all about logic and numbers, Gottilla reinforces that everything developed for infrastructure and network needs has its roots in human programming. "No matter how hard a corporation works to reduce vulnerability threats, there's always going to be the potential for human error. Our job is to find ways to decrease human error and make the most secure network possible."
This kind of logic really makes sense. For every vulnerability that can be exploited, there is a way to build an even higher wall of protection. It's all just a matter of staying current and staying vigilant.
