Rapidly evolving technology is changing the way data is collected, stored and shared, making enterprise cybersecurity more complex than ever before. Hybrid work models have become the norm, with employees, contractors and vendors accessing company assets and networks from anywhere, compromising visibility and security. At the same time, applications, data and services continue to migrate to the cloud, and industrial control systems are increasingly converging with traditional IT networks.
In the midst of these changing paradigms, the cybersecurity market has become more fragmented, with hundreds of security products, solutions and vendors offering overlapping tools and capabilities. This landscape is further complicated by a critical shortage of resources to staff cybersecurity teams. Some reports estimate that more than 350,000 cybersecurity positions are unfilled in the U.S.
Organizations are struggling to keep up with bad actors looking to exploit and profit from the chaos. In 2020, the FBI received a record-breaking number of cyber-crime complaints, accounting for $4.2 billion in losses. Highly publicized malware and ransomware attacks – including Colonial Pipeline, Log4J and SolarWinds to name just a few – have executives and boards demanding safeguards and business resilience.
Traditional methods of securing on-site data centers are no longer sufficient. It's mission-critical for CISOs at organizations large and small, and in every industry vertical, to rethink their approach.
