The cloud – at one point it was a revolution in the workplace. But it is no longer a trend or a movement. It’s now so integrated into IT and infrastructures that, for many companies, it’s simply another part of the business. The availability of mobile devices and cloud services has redefined not only the way we work but where we work.
Protection for users, data, and applications everywhere
Critical infrastructures, applications, and massive amounts of sensitive data are now stored in it, leaving companies at risk of damage if cloud accounts are compromised. With the cloud fast becoming the new normal, network security solutions need to adapt.
Security needs to catch up
More branch offices are now connecting directly to the internet, more unmanaged devices are connecting to the network, and more users are accessing company resources while roaming. With users, apps, and data leaving the perimeter, gaps emerge that leave organizations susceptible to attacks. Cloud services can also lack basic security protections and may even be used without the knowledge and control of the IT team. As a result, IT teams have reduced visibility and control over their environments and sensitive enterprise data.
Security can’t wait any longer — it needs to work now and evolve as new cloud services are adopted. Organizations need a simpler way to gain comprehensive visibility beyond the perimeter. They need to identify potential threats and respond faster, no matter where users access the internet. And they need to be able to simply and effectively manage consistent security policies from one place.
