For CEOs that require a secure and private environment to operate your business.
Private networking enables you to operate in a secure environment while connecting to remote offices, mobile staff, and cloud based IT services.
A benefit of the Internet, and mobile wireless networks is corporate services and data can be extended beyond the traditional bricks and mortar office. A physical lock on the front door and office alarm system are still required plus digital security to extend the corporate network to remote/mobile staff, cloud IT services, and Public Internet based Apps.
Malicious people (hackers) and software (malware) are operating 24 hours a day. In most cases malicious activity can damage or destroy your IT environment. Having a protected private network allows your business to operate by extending secure connections to remote staff and cloud based services while insuring the integrity of your reputation, applications, data and in turn your revenue. With surveillance data gaining value, i.e. Google, Facebook, etc. private networking is more important than ever before.
Plan and be aware of the data you share publicly, keep everything else private. Keep in mind that once your data has been exposed unintentionally, it will likely be collected and used with little to no regard for the well being of your business.
