Are You Confident in Your Network Security?

You’ve probably been there before, at least once. Colorful lights rotating off the ceiling and walls. Music that plays a touch too fast, usually on purpose. Singers who are … enthusiastic in their performance. We’re talking, of course, about singing karaoke.

People love to watch amateurs sing, as demonstrated by the host of amateur singing shows on television, from The Voice to American Idol to The X Factor. The singers’ hearts always seem to be in the right place, even if the notes and words sometimes aren’t. At the end of the day, it’s the effort that counts, right?

You might be wondering what all the silly, at times humiliating goodness of karaoke singing has to do with your network security. It’s simple, really.

Amateur performance is fine when it comes to singing karaoke. When it comes to managing your network security? Not so much. You wouldn’t want that sloppy-but-well-meaning guy in the pub singing on your favorite artist’s new record. So why would you want anything but the very best securing your network, which houses your most precious data and trade secrets?
