Meeting the Security Needs of the Midmarket
Security ranks as the number one concern of midmarket IT leaders, according to our semi-annual survey conducted at Midsize Enterprise Summit.

For CIOs, choosing the right IT security strategy is no easy task. After all, IT leaders are the ones on the front lines trying to protect their organization from a continuous onslaught of cyberthreats and attacks — coming from inside and outside their organizations. IT leaders also are under siege from every partner and tech supplier professing to have the latest and greatest security solution that will save the day. The only thing that can truly save the day amid all the chaos is a well-thought-out and bullet-proof strategy. That plan must demonstrate to the board and senior leaders that security is not just an “IT problem,” but something that must permeate the corporate culture. This strategy must serve to blanket the entire organization with resources and trusted partners who can assist both strategically and tactically. For sure, today’s IT leaders must have a strategy for email security and archiving, unified threat management, mobile device management, identity access management, disaster recovery, endpoint protection and software-defined networking. Those are all important components of a next-gen security architecture. But the starting point is the critical thinking CIOs need to build the ultimate strategy. It is here at the MES University: IT Security where attendees will learn best practices, industry trends, and the latest security solutions for cloud, mobility, IoT and much more.
