Cybersecurity is top of mind for technology managers. As Maxim Balin, senior security solutions architect at Dell Technologies in Beer Sheva, Israel, explains how infrastructure misconfigurations are the most common of the top 10 cybersecurity risks in data centers. These misconfigurations can inadvertently allow hackers access to companies’ data and systems.
Maxim describes how Dell EMC CloudIQ helps data center managers harden their security. The solution monitors the operation of servers, storage and networks at many customer sites, and now comes with a new feature, Cybersecurity Assessment. Misconfiguration risks often go undetected for years, but CloudIQ checks infrastructure configurations every hour and notifies system managers when it detects a risk or a deviation from cybersecurity best practices and policies. Across the IT landscape, it shows each system’s level of risk and allows managers to hone in on specific technologies to fully understand their cybersecurity gaps and begin remediation. CloudIQ data is securely encrypted and protected, in use, at rest and in transit.
