Why the importance of compliancy may be more real than you think

The volume of data created in the last two years is larger than the total volume created in the previous two thousand years, and over the next twelve months, it will have doubled again…

As you are aware, we break down our Security Solution into 5 Key Aspects:



The volume of data created in the last two years is larger than the total volume created in the previous two thousand years, and over the next twelve months, it will have doubled again. Many organizations are now responsible for data beyond their traditional network, which would generally reside safely behind a firewall. It now includes mobile networks, cloud infrastructure and data residing on third party storage systems.

All this data is subject to increasing legislation, this data also needs to be managed to remain compliant with the Data Protection Act, soon to be GDPR; the Patriot Act in the US or the POPI Act in South Africa, creating many challenges for all organizations. In addition to the Government enforced legislation, organizations must also comply with industry specific regulators and their demands, be that the Financial Conduct Authority or The Solicitors Regulatory Authority for example to name a few.

The protection of data falls under our Security / Compliance solution. External security protection is done with a Next Generation Firewall, Internal device protection is completed by means of FortiNet End Point protection. The formidable combination of the Next Generation Firewall and End Point Management is used to best protect data on the network between the two devices and provides peace of mind that if there is a “gogga” on your PC, Server or Network we can and will kill it dead…
