Navigating IT Network Risks and Trends in FY24

As organisations gear up for the fiscal year 2024, it is crucial to take stock of the evolving landscape of IT network risks and trends. Here is a comprehensive overview from Qolcom.

Our partnership with HPE Aruba Networking solutions is well-positioned to address the evolving landscape of IT network risks and trends in FY24:

  1. HPE Aruba Networking SSE provides a unified platform for securing access to cloud applications, data, and services, regardless of the user's location or device. Here is an overview of the key components and features:
    a) Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA): SSE implements a Zero Trust architecture, ensuring that all users and devices are authenticated and authorised before accessing network resources.
    (b) Secure Web Gateway (SWG): that provides advanced threat protection and content filtering for internet-bound traffic. The SWG inspects web traffic in real-time, blocking malicious content and preventing access to unauthorised websites.
    (c) Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB): SSE integrates with leading CASB solutions to provide visibility and control over cloud applications and services. CASB capabilities enable organisations to monitor user activity, detect insider threats, and enforce data protection policies across cloud environments.
    (d) Remote Access VPN: Remote access VPN solution that provides secure connectivity for remote workers and branch offices. The VPN encrypts traffic between endpoints and the corporate network, protecting data in transit from eavesdropping and interception environments.
    (e) Threat Intelligence and Analytics: HPE Aruba Networking SSE leverages threat intelligence feeds and AI-driven analytics to detect and respond to advanced threats in real-time.
    (f) Centralised Management and Reporting: Aruba Central serves as the centralised management and reporting platform for Aruba SSE, providing administrators with visibility and control over security.
