Why The Need
U.S. organizations such as the U.S. Department of Justice, Internal Revenue Service, University of Central Florida, Snapchat, Premier Healthcare, Verizon Enterprise Solutions, Sony, Yahoo, and Cisco have all been part of large data breaches. They are not alone. According to a 2015 Duke University/CFO Global Business Outlook Survey, over 80% of U.S. companies have been successfully hacked. These successful hacking attacks involved stealing, changing, or making public important data. No one appears to be safe. As Robert S. Mueller, III, FBI Director (2001-2013) stated:
“There are only two types of companies: those that have been hacked, and those that will be. Even that is merging into one category: those that have been hacked and will be again”
Public and private cloud storages are rich targets for sophisticated hackers and data thieves. They are often referred to as “one-stop shops,” providing enormous amounts of data when breached.
The reason for the increase in hacks is largely due to the fact that no new, innovative solution has been used to prevent hacking. The same methodology has been used since the early days of networking – software security. As Albert Einstein stated,
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
Hardware-based appliances are the new, innovative, hack proof way to secure your data utilizing high speed, high assurance, fail-safe, anti-tamper, and anti-probe features. All of Secturion’s appliances are hardware based, keeping your data yours.
The other need factor driving Secturion products is “The Need for Speed.” Consumers, corporations, universities and governments are starting to upgrade their networks or network connections from 1Gbps to 100 Gbps data rates with future data rates up to 1Tbps. The demand and need for faster access of information will only increase over time. In today’s information world, “time is money” and time is directly proportional to data rates. That is, the faster the information can be moved or stored and the faster the information is available. Our DarkStor and DarkLink security appliances are designed for high performance and microsecond latencies.
