Broadcasting, Travel & Leisure

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.

These respected corporations trust APCON:

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.

Security

A successful cyberattack could disrupt service for thousands of customers, potentially crippling the business or delaying operations. To prevent a security breach, IT teams need a solution that delivers real-time insights without compromising network performance.

What is network visibility?

Visibility

Broadcasters must continuously boost network capacity and introduce new services, devices, and applications to keep up with demand. But with new technology comes an increase in network traffic. Providers require end-to-end network visibility and need to deploy visibility solutions that capture, view, and analyze all data.

Travel and entertainment companies are under scrutiny to meet regulations to maximize the reliability of their services. These IT teams a unique solution that meets the requirements the industry demands and fulfills customer expectations.


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.
