Dramatic global increase in malware attacks prompts ITsavvy- Dell SonicWALL security webinar

August 25, 2015

ADDISON, IL—ITsavvy, one of the leading IT security experts in the U.S., just announced that, along with Dell SonicWALL, they are hosting a webinar detailing how to effectively eliminate security gaps. The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 17 from 1:15-2:15 CT. Registration is open to IT professionals. This is the first in a series of ITsavvy webinars featuring the company’s own experts and leading technology manufacturers. A recent report stated that in one year alone, global malware attacks increased by 136%. Another source reports that there were more than 317 million new malware items created last year alone. Both sources attribute the increase to the proliferation of mobile devices and the persistent complacence toward security issues. Other contributors include the rise in Cloud computing, the exposure that big data creates, and increased collaboration between organizations across networks. ITsavvy’s Senior Director, Solutions Architecture, Bob Reisdorf said, “ITsavvy is on the leading edge of IT security solutions. There are two reasons for this: we have top security experts on staff and we work with security solution providers that are uniformly acknowledged as the best in the business. This is a very powerful combination that our clients know they can rely on.” During the webinar, Reisdorf and Dell’s Ken Dang, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Network Security will discuss current security challenges and detail exactly what constitutes a resilient security defense system. Participants will learn how to best protect their systems while at the same time reducing the cost and time commitment of their IT and security teams. The webinar promises to:

• Get organizations up to speed on the current threat landscape

• Explain how to take advantage of the latest network security tools and services for ongoing protection against new threats

• Detail the importance of a nimble threat research and response team

• Demonstrate the dramatic security difference that multiple layers of threat protection creates

ITsavvy’s President and CEO Mike Theriault said, “Most organizations have become complacent about security at the exact time they are actually becoming more and more vulnerable. They tend to think that security issues are concerns of the past or that hackers only target the largest multi-national organizations. What you don’t see in the news are the millions of organizations that continue to be crippled by security issues. This webinar is our way of saying that we take security seriously and every other organization should also.” Dell SonicWALL’s dynamic network security and data protection enable Dell to offer comprehensive next-generation firewall and unified threat management solutions.
