Secure Access to Business Intelligence Uncompromising Information Security
Unlock your business potential – with uncompromising security Your IT infrastructure underpins the achievement of business objectives such as improving customer service and productivity, reducing costs, managing risk and gaining competitive advantage. Leading the field will be those organisations that correctly define their security needs in line with both their business objectives and the nature in which the business needs to work, operate and communicate with its many stakeholders. In essence they will map security needs onto business goals and work to balance risk and reward.

This in turn gives them the ability to work and collaborate in a secure, flexible and reliable manner across multiple locations and devices and take advantage of emerging technologies such as cloud computing, virtualisation and web 2.0.

Many of today’s endpoint devices differ greatly from the traditional PC desktop. An increasingly mobile and home-based workforce demand different types of devices to make their jobs easier and enable secure interaction between end users and business applications. Endpoint devices such as servers, notebooks, smartphones, PDAs and even USB drives are the access point to business intelligence, and must be securely managed to protect valuable company data. Cost effectiveness, whilst maintaining security, is a big driver. Redstone’s strategy in working with major security vendors enables its customers to be safe in the knowledge that their endpoint devices are secure and their business intelligence protected.
As the delivery mechanism for business applications, the network infrastructure is the catalyst for the future growth and support of emerging technologies. Endpoint security alone cannot protect the network from unmanaged or third party connected devices bringing unwanted or malicious traffic onto the network. Redstone’s broad expertise in network security and performance management solutions offers industry-leading protection to every business, providing control over network traffic, end-user security, applications and data.

The web remains one of the largest threats

to businesses today. Over 70% of malware hosting sites are trusted brands. At the same time, employees are demanding more access to social networking sites and the majority of external email is now HTML-based. Threats spread through email attachments and links have always been prevalent, but became a very serious issue in 2009. It is arguable that many users are not conscious or concerned about the threat of malicious emails and too often trust unknown senders. Businesses must look for a way to allow employees to use the internet and collaborate safely without constraining their business processes, but also re-educate their users around potential threats and their responsibilities as users. Redstone’s scalable gateway security solutions provide flexibility to ensure businesses are protected from both malware and potential misuse, without sacrificing the freedom required to transact business unhindered; in the office, on the move or working remotely.
Businesses must re-educate their users around potential threats and their responsibilities as users.
Businesses are under increasing pressure to achieve efficiency savings whilst maintaining or enhancing service delivery, which is why technologies that take away the need to manage and administer on-premise devices and applications are attracting such interest. Changes in application delivery, centralisation of resources and OPEX over CAPEX offer financial predictability and a degree of flexibility that is missing in the traditional annual licence model. Hosted or “cloud” based services provide the benefit of a lower total cost of ownership together with many operational advantages; ease of deployment and management, support of scalability and growth, freeing up internal resources and providing quality of support services. Businesses that are struggling for data centre space or power are also turning to service providers to host their applications or databases at remote locations. Redstone works with its customers to ensure the integrity of their applications and data wherever they are stored. In partnership with leading security vendors, Redstone delivers its expertise through managed services or Software as a Service (SaaS) to gives its customers optimum flexibility.

compliance in order to prove that processes and procedures that protect the company are in place; which in itself is a time consuming and worrying task for many businesses. It is important to have the systems in place to monitor and manage information, ensuring an effective view of compliant and non-compliant systems in order to protect the business and its assets. Managing risk and continually assessing compliance across your systems and networks is fundamental to combating ongoing security threats. Our work with key industry bodies allows us to keep abreast of changes and help customers towards becoming compliant.
