The maturity in the market is growing, however having an experienced service orchestrator and partner community is essential to get the balance of commodity, powerful secure cloud and client intimacy.

Hybrid IT allows business to realize the value of IT, eliminating expensive projects, cost overruns, significant CapEx investment, and frustration with the delivery of measurable business outcomes.

Cloud has grown in its maturity and the question is how to remove the high cost on-premise model whilst maintaining security? Symantec will articulate that secure cloud integration is available to respond to economic and volatile business demands.

Security is a foundational pillar of innovative New World solutions. A strategic security framework empowers the enterprise to seize opportunities and leapfrog the competition in the highly mobile, cloud powered marketplace that is the modern business environment.

EE_CFO9_ResponSight Logo

The New Approach to Early Risk Detection.

Rethink enterprise risk profiling. ResponSight is a fresh approach to isolating and aggregating risk, so you know where to prioritise, all the time.

While traditional systems actively search for threats (and miss many, while alerting on false positives), ResponSight’s approach focuses on monitoring user activity and machine. ResponSight performs analytics using activity metrics and statistical data to determine a behavioural fingerprint. Only when behaviour differs from the expected profile or predicted behaviour is the alarm raised.

Enterprises are particularly vulnerable with personal data, commercial and IP assets at risk of breach, harming your customers – and your brand reputation.

Get early warning of changes in risk, before front line detection. Internally, minimise the financial and strategic impact of the breach, and act to block weaknesses in organisational defence. Externally, limit any impact to your customers, decide how you notify the market of the breach and act to minimise the impact on your organisation’s reputation.
