A happy employee is more likely to become - and remain - a productive employee. That's why at QBS we have no hesitation in recommending Arista Edge Threat Management (ETM) solutions for the complex, hybridised business environment that's today's 'new normal'.

With Arista ETM, customers and partners alike benefit from edge friendly network security that meets the challenges of hybrid working head on - even while cyberattacks are still on the rise.

Phishing and pharming attacks are just a small sample of the tide of attacks threatening to overtake the modern business. From 2020 to 2021 alone, phishing type attacks increased by 34% from 2020 to 2021 and, incredibly, more than 1128% since 2018, according to figures cited by Arista.

With greater flexibility, the network security challenge continues to evolve.

Yet even as events of the pandemic shrink in our rear-view mirror, remote and hybrid working shows no sign of decreasing in popularity among workers - many of whom appreciate the convenience of being able to work from home or on the go, remaining productive wherever they happen to be.

Luckily, with Arista ETM in the channel partner arsenal, shoring up the corporate network to meet these challenges both within and between formal workplaces, protecting and connecting it in its entirety, becomes straightforward.

And it's not just about large corporates

SMBs - the bulk of businesses out there - may not be aware that they're highly likely to be targets for cyberattack, just like large organisations. According to Verizon’s 2022 Data Breach Investigations Report, (DBIR), almost half (46%) of cyberattacks target smaller businesses.

Smaller organisations are at a disadvantage as they don't have the same amounts of resource available, typically, as large corporates. This often means less robust security - and malicious actors know this.

Yet at the same time, SMBs can be quick to downplay the risks, assuming it cannot happen to them. It's a great opportunity for the channel to educate and assist.

And with Arista ETM, you're offering award-winning products trusted by thousands of customers to secure millions of devices on the network, including at the edge. Enjoy the advantage of protection, encryption, control and visibility across the entire network with NG Firewall, IPS, VPN and more, as well as onboard security for small network appliances or IoT devices.

Full security processing happens on-prem or in the cloud, while Arista's Intelligent Edge Optimization can deliver optimal WAN connectivity and routing across your distributed network, at every location that's centrally managed.

In fact, Arista ETM has everything you need in a single platform for edge threat management.
