In Part 1 of this series (Part One: Why are Branch Offices so Vulnerable?), I looked at some of the reasons why branch offices are so vulnerable to data breaches. In Part 2, (The changing face of malicious attacks), the topic was the new forms these attacks are taking. In Part 3, I’d like to talk about how the solution Cradlepoint has developed with Zscaler defeats these new attempts to access corporate networks.

Last year enterprise security experts discovered that, once hackers are able to break into less protected monolithic network segments, they can quickly “pivot” to access segments that contain valuable information. The result has been catastrophic for some of the biggest names in retailing.
As part of a renewed focus on law enforcement accountability and safety, President Obama petitioned Congress for the funds to buy more than 50,000 body cameras for police agencies nationwide. This represents a $75 million allocation for the lapel-mounted body cameras, and additional funds for hardware to support video capture, storage, and analytics.
In part two of this blog series, we will discuss the specific threats branch offices face, and why Cradlepoint has joined Zscaler to defeat these threats.

To protect the entire enterprise, management must make sure that their branch office staff members, as well as their customers, do nothing that might compromise overall security.
