Cloud services have made the widespread adoption of hybrid, flexible and remote work possible, and introduced significant challenges in defending networks from threats. We explore how to secure a perimeterless environment against increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks.
Organisations have been reaping the rewards of a flexible workforce better able to balance life, productivity and costs. Cloud services enable employees to work from anywhere, any time and on any device, extending the digital footprint far beyond the traditional office and its secured office network perimeter.
Existing defences like firewalls and gateways have had to expand to respond to requirements they weren’t intended for. As data, applications and resources that cloud based services store and host increase, so too does the need for new approaches to network defence.
We investigate the five key challenges cloud services pose, and how your organisation can respond.
