While this post is intended to be a little tongue-in-cheek for readers, it’s been written to provoke discussion on how organizations continue to do the same things they have done for the last 15 years, without thinking of all the issues they bring with them…

Web and email continue to be the two major vectors of attack for organizations. But, are they paying enough attention to the risks of malvertising, ransomware, spear-phishing, infections, user tracking and other threats associated with using the web? 

Most would agree they would like to do more, but don’t know what other choices they have.

Isolation offers organizations the benefit of freeing access to content, and improves productivity while removing the risk of infection for users from websites, files downloaded from the web, and suspicious links in email and email attachments. 

Below are 10 reasons why you shouldn’t consider Isolation:   :-)

  1. Your employees are happy having massive chunks of the web blocked due to security risks.
  2. Your security analysts keep asking you for more logs and alerts to review.
  3. You feel like you are re-categorising your URL database, not your vendor.
  4. You never tire of sending your anti-virus vendor yet another file that is not detected by your desktop AV engine.
  5. Your board members back your requests for more budget to improve security capabilities every time you ask.
  6. You enjoy the extra overtime to apply out-of-band Adobe Flash updates across your organization.
  7. Because your user education is brilliant, your employees don’t click on suspicious links. Ever.
  8. WannaCry and other ransomware cyber attacks had no impact to your business in 2017.
  9. You can’t wait to notify the authorities of every potential compromise because your GDPR processes are perfect.
  10. Your business has never been compromised and no one would target your organization anyway.
