Once upon a time, employees worked exclusively from an office location, accessing resources and applications in their data centre using personal computers that were fixed to their desks. And in this world, it made sense that security tools were also located in the office or data centre – inside the perimeter – since that’s where the users, data and servers that needed protecting resided.
Today’s world is one where employees are working remotely the majority of the time, and where collaboration is enabled by cloud-based apps such as Microsoft Teams and Slack. Data is uploaded, shared, posted and created in the cloud, and employees are connected directly to the Internet from wherever they are. So, where should security tools be deployed to defend your employees from threats and protect your data…? Not in the data centre!
Now, more than ever, is the time to upgrade security and move it to the cloud. It is essential to consolidate tools and benefit from the latest data and threat protection capabilities, as well as securely enable collaboration and remote working within your organisation.
