Carousel Industries Helps Companies Address Next Generation Internet Security Threats with 'Back to Basics' Three Point Approach
The Key to Understanding Security Threats Lies in Understanding Your Environment; Carousel Invites Companies to Participate in Complimentary Benchmarking Survey
Exeter, Rhode Island, August 7, 2014 -- Carousel Industries, a leader in unified communications, managed services, data networking solutions and visual communications, has been helping enterprises mitigate network security threats since the company was founded in 1992. While many of these threats are fundamentally the same at the most basic level, attack methodologies have evolved and companies' networking environments have become increasingly complex.
According to security experts at Carousel, the key to developing and executing a successful security approach lies in three fundamental steps: First, understanding one's networking environment and the inherent security risks; Second, knowing which hardware and software purchases will assist in mitigating both present and future security risks; Third, implementing a consistent visibility and reporting strategy. Through its SmartPoint Guard managed services program and its partnership with best of breed security manufacturers, Carousel brings unique perspective to both legacy and next generation network security challenges that enterprises face.
In light of the prevalent, well-publicized security attacks, increasing regulatory compliance requirements and proliferation of mobile devices — not to mention the relatively recent advent of cloud computing and the massive wireless endpoints connecting back to large data centers — it is no surprise that many companies are perplexed on where to begin with network security. "Frankly, there has been a lot of conflict avoidance," says Mike Burgess. "We spend a lot of time working with companies to help them understand their environment and acquire the tools and expertise needed to secure their data."
Carousel and Juniper are inviting several companies to take the first step in understanding their own security needs by participating in a short, complimentary survey, which helps identify participants' key priorities and challenges. On completion of the survey, participants will receive an analysis of the results as well as an opportunity to benchmark their responses against the broader community of survey participants.
