“By 2020, 60 percent of digital businesses will suffer major service failures due to the inability of it security teams to manage digital risk.” – Gartner
There is a momentous change happening in the IT world – what was once limited to the confines of an on-premise world has now extended to the cloud. Mobile devices and cloud based technologies have reinvented the working of companies -everything from decision making to customer service, and have also resulted in the exponential rise in the mobile workforce.
The need for managing and protecting identity, devices and data in cloud era – an introduction.
Prior to the cloud era, information and data were contained within your network perimeter and were under your control. But now, the information that you need to protect, lives on the devices which are diverse and often outside your organization’s network perimeter. This makes your business data and applications easily accessible and bring them under the risk of unauthorized access.
Moreover, cybersecurity attacks that pose a threat to the entire IT infrastructure, are not only growing but are also evolving every day.
No doubt, a business when injected with mobility, leads to enhanced employee engagement and more tightly connected network, while providing cost savings and adding flexibility to the workplace. But workers alone do not become mobile, their devices too become mobile, which generate some blind spots in an organization’s IT landscape, helping attackers gain a foothold in the enterprise systems.
Mobility also leads to increased and easy interaction with other users, devices, apps and data which further enhances threat of attack vectors and malicious activities.
So, the information security teams and IT infrastructure of the digitally transforming organizations, need advanced solutions that can not only help them adapt to the changing landscape but also deal with the increasingly evolving threat environment.
