The Evolution of Security—Where Are We Going?

Symantec and Aurora partnering to lead the way

New threats, new challenges, and new vulnerabilities emerge every day; we have certainly learned this throughout the past year. Lucky for us, and lucky for you, new, innovative solutions are also emerging. 

When I started my career in the information security industry over 15 years ago, I was the lead engineer at my company’s first enterprise-wide whole disk encryption roll-out across the entire organization of over 15,000 plus endpoints using Symantec Encryption Desktop solution. Now, as a senior engineer with Aurora’s services team, I have been instrumental in providing professional services for the deployment of Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP) for our customers across the entertainment, financial, and healthcare industries. Since 1990, security-conscious companies have turned to Aurora professionals for support of their business critical applications. Our experienced team of security experts helps our clients to conquer the complex challenges of data security. 

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) goes beyond your current security solutions by combining networking and SaaS capabilities.

When Aurora’s relationship with Symantec, a Division of Broadcom, began over 20 years ago, it was all about encryption. Encryption was the be-all and end-all of security. We were encrypting, we had encryption keys, and that was going to be the solution to every security problem for years. Of course, more complex issues arose such as managing encryption for remote workers, decryption, etc.  Through these shifts, Aurora has continued to be a Premier Partner of Symantec, providing our joint customers with both solutions and services to match. We have engineers on staff that pride themselves on tracking the pulse of security. As we look towards the future of technology, Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) certainly comes to mind. 

SASE

Many of our customers have asked us: “What’s the big deal with SASE and is it right for me?”

As the enterprise heads towards 5G, organizations will be processing data files at speeds we’ve never seen before. The introduction of 5G is going to require increased bandwidth and computing resources in addition to an increase in security. Data will have to be both encrypted and decrypted as it moves throughout your on-premise and cloud environments. The introduction of 5G and the demand for increased cloud security requires a security structure that is advanced and innovative.

In the increasingly cloud-based landscape of today, adopting a SASE compliant framework is becoming more critical for security-conscious companies.

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) goes beyond your current security solutions by combining networking and SaaS capabilities. The architecture allows you to enable connectivity for users that are working from anywhere with the security capabilities that enforce proper security policies. The goal is to have a Secure Access platform that enables your organization to securely connect any user from anywhere on any device to your company resources.

In the increasingly cloud-based landscape of today, adopting a SASE compliant framework is becoming more critical for security-conscious companies. We recognize that achieving a SASE framework isn’t one size fits all. It can mean deploying DLP, CloudSOC, or better securing your mobile entities. Aurora can provide security consulting services to help you reach a SASE framework, and better protect your organization in the cloud.
