IT departments across all industries are fighting a constant battle to protect company networks from hackers and fraudsters. Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an effective – and increasingly important – weapon in the IT manager’s armory.
IT departments are being asked to do more with less, despite a growing list of challenges and threats. Under such circumstances, it is vital that IT management systems are optimized to reduce costs while ensuring security.
Shadow IT isn’t new, it’s as old as IT itself. It’s what happens when frustrated users bypass official channels and deploy their own technology to help them get things done. In the process, they often store critical business data beyond the reach of IT departments.
No matter which sector you’re in, IT departments of all shapes and sizes face similar challenges when it comes to managing resources. If you’re not careful, it’s easy to find yourself burning through a lot of time and money with very little to show for it.
