Depending on your industry a critical site can range from factories, to oil rigs, to trading floors, to chemical plants, to military sites or nuclear reactors. The one thing these sites have in common is the need to have high performance, high availability, high resilience and secure network connections to data centres and systems that ensure the operation is not compromised. Whether it is a revenue, reputation or regulation impact (or all three), if something goes wrong your business feels the pain.
You need to protect and defend such sites rigorously against intrusion and attack – whether physical or virtual. The threats today are more numerous than they’ve ever been – from criminals seeking to cripple critical systems in order to extract ransom payments, all the way through to state-sponsored cyberterrorism and espionage. So, you need to focus your network and security expenditure in the right places.
At the same time these sites typically have very specific requirements, in terms of performance and uptime, or indeed might need to follow specific country regulations. To do that, you’ll need to make sure you have the appropriate network for the job.
