Woking, Surrey: 24/2/14 – The diversity of the Conference Program at this year’s Infosecurity Show mirrors the sheer breadth of challenges facing IT staff today, claimed Ian Kilpatrick, chairman of exhibitor Wick Hill Group. “The range and nature of threats,” he commented, “has continued to evolve, while the old threats still remain, with criminal and issue-based attackers being both skilled and well-funded.”
Kilpatrick thinks that the working environment is changing at its fastest rate since the early 80s, with mobility and wireless forcing change more quickly than many organisations can cope with.
“Insider threats have become harder to defend against,” he said, “while increased complexity has reduced overall security visibility. Alongside this, regulation and big data continue to demand attention.”
Kilpatrick warned show visitors that despite the shrill claims of some suppliers, there is no single universal panacea for this range of challenges. The sheer breadth of security issues, he stressed, needs a breadth of solutions.
As a value added distributor, with nearly 40 years experience, Wick Hill has tested and selected a small focussed range of technologies to address many of the current and upcoming security challenges. The company is showing solutions from a number of different suppliers on its stand, including new products and version updates.
From Guidance Software is a range of solutions for maintaining security in a network infrastructure which has more and more endpoints, rapidly increasing mobility and ever growing amounts of data. These provide exceptional visibility into endpoint activity across the network, as well as sophisticated forensic tools, which include the ability to preserve forensic evidence post-incident.
Another prominent supplier on the Wick Hill stand is Kaspersky Labs, providers of products with world-class anti-malware and anti-virus protection. Solutions on show include Kaspersky Security for Mobile, which helps to eliminate security breaches that can result from allowing mobile access to corporate networks, and Kaspersky Open Space Security, a solution for ensuring security across the network perimeter for all network endpoints, from mobile devices to servers.
Other suppliers on the Wick Hill stand include ThreatTrack Security, A10 Networks, Barracuda Networks, Check Point Software Technologies, Allot Communications, SafeNet and WatchGuard.
