We are at a turning point where IT teams must say “yes” to remain relevant, and intelligently select security solutions that will still allow for compliance. For far too long, IT have been getting away with being inflexible to the requests of their workforce.
The reason was simple – they set the rules and workers followed them with data security being the key justification, like it or not. But to harness the productivity of the new breed of tech savvy workers along with cloud services, personal devices and internet enabled things, traditional IT has to transform into HybridIT, they must be flexible yet retain a level or risk comfort.
Can we switch the tone here to be more positive? How does IT Security adapt to this new world, and bring the paradigms of strong auth and device compliance that the enterprise needs to manage risk to the new Hybrid IT architectures of Mobile and Cloud while making apps easy to use and respecting employee privacy?
