The world is more connected today as just about everything, and everyone, is reliant on technology. That is a good or a bad thing, depending on your position. An example of the good is that communication is a lot easier. An example of the bad is that the role of chief information security officers, or CISOs, is more critical nowadays, causing challenges that make it increasingly difficult to keep their organizations safe and secure.
As businesses embrace new technologies (such as cloud computing, mobile devices and IoT), their attack surface expands significantly, creating new vulnerabilities and risks that need to be addressed.
Furthermore, as organizations grow, their IT infrastructure becomes more complex, making it more challenging to manage and secure. As the cost of data breaches and cyberattacks continues to rise, organizations are under increasing pressure to invest in robust security measures, making it challenging for CISOs to justify the cost of these investments.
Being a CISO is a tough task, no doubt, but it doesn’t need to be that way. Enter Hillstone Networks, a provider of cybersecurity that delivers depth and breadth of protection to companies of all sizes, from edge to cloud, and across any workload.
Hillstone announced a new approach to helping customers achieve cyber resilience with integrative cybersecurity solutions that address the gaps in security and challenges faced by CISOs and security professionals. This integrative approach brings coverage, control and consolidation to protect global enterprises from multilayer, multistage cyberattacks.
Hillstone’s integrative cybersecurity approach tackles cybersecurity head-on in three areas: securing the networks, mitigating the threats and protecting the workloads.
First up, securing the networks. Hillstone offers network security solutions that are equipped for the future, establishing a firm base for zero-trust architecture. In particular, the Hillstone X25812 Data Center Firewall is designed for hyperscale data centers, providing exceptional availability and scalability.
With up to 3.5 Tbps firewall throughput, 720 million concurrent connections, and 19 million new sessions per second, it is highly efficient. Furthermore, it is equipped with advanced security features and network capabilities that cater to the needs of large enterprises, carriers and ISPs. While offering these capabilities, it remains eco-friendly by maintaining energy efficiency, thereby reducing its carbon footprint.
Secondly, mitigate threats before they attack the enterprise. This is achieved through Hillstone’s AI-powered threat detection and response, which finds and mitigates attacks before they have a chance to exploit data. Hillstone Networks Breach Detection System is at the forefront of this effort. It supports the MITRE ATT&CK framework to improve threat detection, automate asset discovery and deepen its integration with the Hillstone iSource XDR solution for unified threat management.
Finally, protect the workloads, and Hillstone’s Uncompromising Cloud Workload Protection solutions ensure an enterprise’s data environment and workload are fully secure. Hillstone’s latest version of CloudArmour, with granular network micro-segmentation and patented traffic steering technology, is upgraded with an anti-virus capability that delivers enhanced threat protection and deeper visibility into cloud workloads. What this means is that organizations can now embrace a cyber-resilient cloud infrastructure.
“Today’s CISOs are facing challenges from every direction as they address a rapidly evolving infrastructure, a fast-changing threat landscape and increasing complexity and costs,” said Tim Liu, Chief Technology Officer and and co-founder at Hillstone. “Our approach delivers a streamlined, centralized and scalable platform to help CISOs enhance their organization’s cyber resilience and protect critical assets.”
Hillstone’s cybersecurity approach is continuously enhanced through the company’s commitment to innovation and new product releases.
