Fifty nine percent of geo-distributed businesses experienced network problems related to their multi-site structure at least once a month, Kaspersky has found. Among the most common challenges named were network outages, lost connections and poor performance of services and applications.

The latest Kaspersky report ‘Managing geographically distributed businesses: challenges and solutions’ provides a deeper insight into the network security challenges faced by geo-distributed companies while building and maintaining their multi-site infrastructure. It also highlights problems related to comprehensive information protection of all their offices.
