Organizations turn to cloud precisely because it allows both flexibility and scalability. But, many still view cloud - and cloud vendors - with trepidation, pointing to security issues, such as last year's iCloud breach, which revealed nude celebrity photos and consequently dominated the headlines in 2014.
It's too late to put the kibosh on mobile computing in the enterprise. And why would any organization want to? The benefits are clear.
As we all gear up for the holidays with plans to purchase any number of items online, cyberthieves too are gearing up with more and more creative ways to steal money, credentials and critical data from any number of organizations.
Today's threats are becoming increasingly complex. Organizations can no longer rely on antivirus alone and must be on the lookout for innovative, next-generation endpoint protection solutions.
You see it every day in the media, blog posts and industry marketing; "It isn't a question of if, but when." This defeatist attitude is settling over the industry like Death's own shawl.
Attackers are more sophisticated than they've ever been. They're targeting our intellectual property, sensitive customer information, user information and much more. The network is not the target—it's the endpoint where that data resides.
