Secure your data with unparalleled physical security

By George Dionisopoulos - Head of Security

As organisations continue to modernise and move more workloads to cloud, new kinds of challenges arise for IT leaders. In a recent survey, 33% of organisations reported that the biggest challenge they faced across their Hybrid/Multi-Cloud architecture was establishing a holistic security posture that spans the physical and virtual environments.

Infact, the 2021 State of Security report indicates that 49% of organisations found managing securing in today’s Multi-Cloud environment harder than two years ago.

Security has a direct impact on business and underpins how organisations enhance their own operations. The cost of breaches at the reputational, competition and regulatory compliance level can be cataclysmic. With the increased acceleration to cloud, security becomes a priority for the entire business, not just IT. As such, security plays a leading role in our digital infrastructure platform, forming part of the end-to-end customer experience we are best known for.

Building and operating a security practise to the highest global standards isn’t a luxury afforded to most organisations whose core business isn’t security. When it comes to how and where organisations invest their Capex, it becomes a competing priority to organisational ‘must have’s’ such as growth, R&D and innovation strategies. This is one advantage where an outsourced data centre model lends itself to the ongoing success of our customers’ business.

In this security deep dive, we discuss the makings of a universal security posture with global security experts Genetec.

When it comes to addressing the highest direct and indirect business priorities, organisations are increasingly turning to NEXTDC for support. When our customers make the strategic decision to relocate their IT environment to NEXTDC they experience immediate speed to value. One of the critical drivers instantly addressed is their security posture, tapping into our elite security operations and hardened posture that keeps our customers IT safely secured 24/7.

Building a comprehensive security strategy takes thorough planning and vulnerability testing from the inside out. For business leaders, data security is a key budget consideration, and as pressure mounts around safe-guarding data, keeping up with security in a Multi-Cloud environment doesn’t have to be the headache it threatens to be.
