EMEA Perspective - Building Resilient Cybersecurity

Even as an essential part of the fourth industrial revolution, cloud adoption in EMEA has historically trailed the United States. But that’s starting to change. And the pandemic has accelerated the velocity for both. Drilling into EMEA, the European Commission expects that 80% of all data will be processed in smart devices closer to the user by 2025. IDC research indicates that public cloud spending in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa (META) will rise to $2.8 billion this year and reach $6.5 billion by 2024.

It’s no secret that hackers outnumber the cybersecurity professionals trying to stop them. And that gap will likely continue to widen. But there’s steps organisations can take now. Building resilience into IT creates a solid foundation for forward-looking business continuity plans. Converged security platforms and integrated solutions help provide the flexibility needed to adapt to evolving infrastructure needs and increasingly complex business use cases.

How our customers are planning for resilience

Organisations in every vital sector work with Forcepoint to stay connected and keep their networks, users and data safe. For some time now, we’ve been witnessing the clear emergence of a SASE trend with hybrid deployments following a new converged solution path.

Take the case of ERG Group, a renewable energy operator who had to provision a growing number of power plants throughout Europe with web access and email on a secure network. With Forcepoint SWG and NGFW they already counter attacks and cut connectivity costs, and they have simultaneously begun an integration journey that will boost their factor of resilience over the coming years.

Ireland’s Electricity Supply Board (ESB) is deploying a SASE framework of network, cloud and data security solutions to keep pace with a 5-year digital transformation schedule. Turkey’s largest private airline Pegasus transitioned to cloud-based security to cut hardware costs, reduce maintenance effort and ensure high availability, while protecting users wherever they work; DLP allowed the airline to document more than 400 terabytes of data throughout datacenter and cloud-based systems in just three months!

We see many more stories like these unfolding as more and more organisations join the urgent quest for business buoyancy. We’re here to offer customers a better cybersecurity path forward.

Making your cybersecurity resilient

New ways of working and blurred perimeters create unprecedented connectivity and data movement scenarios. We can help you deal with it. Dave Barnett, Head of Forcepoint’s Edge portfolio in EMEA, explains in this sunny 3-minute stream how our cloud-native SASE platform delivers the functions previously fulfilled by on-premise technology.

Better together

Forcepoint’s Cloud Security Gateway functions as a converged cloud security solution that brings together our enterprise-class CASB and DLP offerings, combined with our Secure Web Gateway and  remote browser isolation technology. All of it works together to provide visibility, control and threat protection for users and data wherever they are.  

The following demos of selected use cases illustrate how the converged platform responds to the need for dynamic, single-pane, always-on connectivity and security:  

It doesn’t stop there. You can find out more and ask specific questions by requesting a live demoif you have more immediate needs, use the ‘chat’ option that you’ll see on many Forcepoint.com pages.
