In addition to e-books, on-demand video and GPS devices, one of the future technological innovations envisioned by AT&T in its famous early 1990s series of “You Will” commercials was an Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system that enabled drivers to wirelessly pay their tolls as they drove through a toll booth. While that prediction was perhaps not as bold as the others (Europe began developing similar ETC systems in the 1980s), today we take for granted E-ZPass in the U.S. and similar systems where drivers can enter toll roads, HOV lanes, bridges and tunnels without having to stop at a tollbooth to pay.
Typically, these systems require a driver to put an OBU (On Board Unit, which can be called transponder or “edge” IoT device) in their vehicle and, when their vehicle passes through a toll booth, the toll booth wirelessly connects to the edge to automatically deduct the toll from their bank account.
"Every user’s first interaction with your website begins with a series of DNS queries.

Running a retail company has never been so challenging – perhaps more so for mid-sized businesses. With high customer expectations, shrinking margins, and intense competition from start-ups and global retail giants alike, it’s difficult to know which areas of your business to prioritise for improvement. In this guide, we’ll discuss some of the key challenges for growing retailers. We’ll also look at the digital tools that could help you overcome them, and keep your competitive edge.
Do you know what your employees are doing on your
network? Do you know about the latest ransomware
attack your security team is battling? How about your
business partners? Are they secure?
With all of these questions swirling around in your head,
it’s hard to feel secure about network security. But there
is one thing that could help: a solid plan.
Perhaps you’re aware that your organization should
have a formal incident response plan. Or maybe you
already have one. But are you completely clear on all the
components that should make up such a plan? Or what
to do when things go wrong? Or how to get help when
you need it?
Over the next few pages, we’ll provide you with
some insight to help you build and strengthen your
organization’s incident response plan.
In today’s complex network environments, applications, infrastructure and threats are dynamic. As such, relying upon various, single-purpose security devices that don’t integrate with each other results in dangerous security gaps. These devices are poorly coordinated and unable to provide comprehensive security and threat prevention. To protect against today’s advanced attacks requires a natively integrated, next-generation approach to security – an approach that can keep up with the latest application and infrastructure trends and recognize and stop today’s most advanced threats.
How a security rationalization process helps CISOs optimize your security infrastructure while improving the bottom line. Whether you’ve over-invested in security tools, under-invested, don’t know the extent of your security capabilities or you’re facing new regulations that require you to demonstrate and continually maintain compliance — there is a path forward. To understand and optimize what you have in place, as well as gaps you may have, develop a security rationalization process to calculate the return on your security investments.
