Large Enterprises are challenged with building an infrastructure that supports the multiple demands being placed on their business. Each day, forward-thinking organisations reinvent how they conduct business by adopting Internet-based solutions.
The results: competitive advantage, new sources of revenue, and optimised business processes.
However, for Internet-based solutions that are deployed without appropriate security policies, processes and products, Internet connectivity can also compromise the very gains in revenue and productivity. Major networking threats, for example network security breaches, e-mail spamming and Server attacks (denial-of-service), can result in damaging losses. The fear of such losses can cause organisations to delay implementing Internet-based solutions that they need to stay competitive. In today's dynamic business environment, this reluctance can quickly reduce a company's growth potential and erode its profitability.
