Data speed and accessibility drive the very heartbeat of travel and commercial entertainment providers. The proliferation of on-demand online booking, streaming, and online gaming requires provider networks to expand exponentially, both in the cloud and in the datacenter. The rapid growth of all digital mediums (cloud, mobile, third-party portals) and the expansion of corporate IT infrastructures (to a myriad of devices and global networks) create new vulnerabilities. Cybercriminals are doubling down on their attempts to exploit these new attack surfaces. With this ever-changing security landscape, IT teams in these industries need absolute visibility to manage the constantly evolving risk of cyberattacks, content security gaps, outages, and downtime.

If it isn’t already, cybersecurity spending should be part of any broadcaster’s yearly cost management process. When drawing up budgets, it’s most helpful to prioritize investments in the tools that ensure greater information security even though the expenditures may not enhance the bottom line in the short-term.

Don’t “Cancel the Show” Because of Network Threats
Travel, entertainment, and broadcasting companies often have very complex networks running on systems that do not always communicate well with each other. Faced with this level of complexity, IT teams are always seeking better solutions including network packet brokers and monitoring software that can support quicker, more efficient diagnosis of problems within these networks. Many monitoring and analysis tools are expensive and do not deliver the high performance needed by bookers, broadcasters, or gambling institutions, for example. Our scalable solutions offer network traffic aggregation and optimization to send data to all of your security and performance monitoring tools for faster analytics, reduced complexity, and lower cost.
As the travel and tourism sector is embracing emerging technologies to redefine products, services, and consumer experiences, their cyber ecosystems become increasingly vulnerable to security risks related with these technologies, the huge amount of financial transactions they carry out and the valuable customer data they store.
