The security of desktop is a major issue for CIOs.
In fact, Pc are often the gateway for cyberattacks and can be infected by unintentional malware installations.
A breach of even a portion of the company’s data can be very harmful and have serious repercussions for its sustainability.
Here’s a detailed explanation of how to better manage the security of terminals with ceBox®.
The security of desktops has become one of the CIO’s main responsibilities. In fact, a poorly protected terminal can jeopardize not only its stored data but also the data stored on the systems connects to it (other terminals, servers, etc.).
There are multiple types of security breaches, which complicates the security of terminals. Here are some security issues CIOs encounter:
- Security breach in the operating system, often due to it not being updated
- Breach in a software or application, often due to them not being updated
- Antivirus’s database not updated or unreliable
- Too lenient network configuration
- Too lenient OS access rights
- Human error, user ignorance, social engineering
Besides the consequences of data loss or theft, the business issues are great, and when the IT collapses, the entire company is immobilized.
In the event of a cyberattack such as WannaCry, the CIO must first prevent the attack from spreading and then restart activity as quickly as possible with minimal data loss.
The business recovery plan, on the other hand, must switch on a recovery system capable of supporting the IT needs necessary to the company’s survival.
Heterogeneous software posing security problems
Deployment of complex security updates
Daily attempt of malicious installation
Shadow IT more and more important in business
Belated discovery of a cyberattack, substantial cost due to the interruption in production
Real-time monitoring of all IT complicated or even impossible
