Half of all SMBs are victims of cyberattacks. Of those that are attacked, 60% go out of business within months. For SMBs needing better cybersecurity for their employees, guests and all connected devices, the security as a service (SECaaS) model presents the perfect opportunity for CSPs to fill a growing need with a cost-effective, easy-to-deploy solution, while maintaining management of and visibility into all activities on the network.

When SECaaS is made available through the carrier cloud – as opposed to through a third-party provider – by leveraging a CSP's DNS infrastructure, service providers can ensure network performance remains at optimal levels, regardless of the traffic volume or issues caused by third-party cloud solutions. The SECaaS model also enables CSPs to provide the strongest level of protection against threats like phishing, ransomware and other malware – in a highly scalable way, at minimal cost – while creating a new revenue stream and strengthening brand loyalty.

Join this webinar, hosted by Jim Hodges of Heavy Reading, along with Nominum security experts, to learn:

  • Why SMBs are a key target of cyberattacks and how a SECaaS model presents new opportunities for CSPs
  • The benefits to CSPs and their SMB customers of offering a SECaaS solution through the carrier cloud
  • How the DNS infrastructure provides the best layer of protection and keeps network management and visibility with the CSP

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
