Delivering security with operational efficiency from the cloud
Underlying Security Issues
In light of the growing number and severity of cyberattacks, IT teams are undertaking enormous effort to strengthen perimeter security measures at headquarters, where the company’s people and resources are typically concentrated. These efforts typically involve improving traffic visibility, as well as deploying measures to stop known and unknown exploits and malware. Security teams look for ways to improve their optics into network traffic to understand and mitigate the threat footprint.
With the effort spent to improve security at headquarters, why would any organization do anything less for remote networks or mobile users? High standards for security should be applicable everywhere. These users are no different from the employees at HQ, and they are exposed to the same types of risks. Yet there are many examples of cost, performance and security requirements being in conflict.
Your Perimeter Is Everywhere
The world you need to secure is undergoing tremendous transformation. Global expansion, mobile workforces and cloud computing are shifting the location of your applications, data and users. These changes introduce new opportunities for business, but they also create a set of cybersecurity risks.
These tectonic shifts in location strain an organization’s ability to protect data and stop threats consistently. The mandate for security has not changed, but the ability to deliver protection at each location is at a crossroads. Many organizations, faced with the rising costs of extending the perimeter using conventional methods, are left with few other choices. These consequences place organizations at risk. It is important to understand where the risks lie to evaluate what must be done to bring security back into balance.
