How to manage, protect and audit users in a cloud centric world

The concept of a mobile workforce, powered by technology like Smartphones and Cloud sharing platforms, has come to be globally accepted. However, organisations are only beginning to grasp how great an impact this shift has had on their ability to secure and manage their network. Constant movement in and out of the organisations secure environment, data sharing across multiple devices and platforms, and unsecured WiFi networks, are just some of the factors that make managing IT security a major challenge in today's environment. Traditional on-premise AV is no longer enough to combat cyber-security threats, and nor are traditional device management techniques. Today's business environment calls for a new approach employing advanced cloud technologies.
A new paradigm of security must be adopted – going beyond the traditional perimeter and evaluating risk with total visibility.
