Exploring Innovative Server Security for CTOs
While following industry standards helps safeguard servers, the cyberattack risk is so great that HPE ensures ProLiant servers are secure. How? By also applying silicon security to protect the firmware.
Worldwide, 720 million hack attempts occur every 24 hours. But businesses don’t always know something evil is lurking in their IT infrastructure. It takes the average business 99 days to detect malicious code—that’s a big problem because companies lose $9M on average each year due to cybercrime.
What makes things even more difficult for CTOs trying to protect their digital assets is that security is a constantly moving target. IT security management tools need to change because hackers go where they find the least resistance. With today’s defenses focusing primarily on protecting software, cybercriminals are turning toward the firmware and hardware layers.
Security measures must go beyond industry standards
While protecting hardware requires following industry security standards, the risk of cyberattacks is so great that businesses must innovate to ensure servers leverage additional levels of protection. This includes silicon-level security to protect the firmware.
