You may have seen an article recently in the news about a Bangladesh Bank being hacked.
Blame was placed upon the Bank’s investment of $10 in second hand switches. I mean $10 come on!
Who within the executive management or senior IT team authorized this? What was on there minds? This ‘investment’ led to the loss of $80 MILLION. Oh and did I mention the fact that there was no firewall.
Security has a price. I am sure that even if you bought a gold plated piece of the ‘Latest & Greatest’ kit it wouldn’t cost $80 MILLION. Protect yourselves wisely and invest appropriately.
Personally, I prefer Watchguard Next Generation Firewalls because of the elegant simplicity of their management interface – and they are red.
