With businesses continuing their digital migrations to cloud services and applications, IT is finding itself wrestling with how to keep companies’ data safe.
The challenge? The cloud has created a next-generation, virtual perimeter. Businesses are using infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), cloud storage, software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications housed by third parties, and are connecting to these resources using mobile and fixed devices that are not tied to a company branch office or headquarters.
The result is data being housed across a fragmented landscape, where achieving the control and visibility that organizations have traditionally had over their data has become more complex — thus introducing new areas of risk.
