Enterprise applications used to live securely in data centres and office employees connected to internal networks using company-managed laptops or desktops. And data was encircled by a walled perimeter to keep everything safe.
All that changed in the last 18 months. Businesses and employees had to adapt quickly to cloud technology and remote work. The cloud gave businesses the agility to respond faster to change and the scale to accommodate rapid growth. Remote work boosted productivity by letting employees access cloud data from anywhere on any device.
This is not business as usual. The data centre and the perimeter security are no longer the centre of the universe. Now remote workers, personal mobile devices, applications, and data are in the middle.
Although employees, applications, and data have left the building, IT security teams still shoulder the responsibility for protecting confidential data and ensuring compliance with strict privacy regulations. The risk of not doing so can be costly.
Register for this upcoming webinar to learn how to reduce risk with integrated endpoint-to-cloud security.
