Whitepaper: Protecting and Empowering Your Connected Organization

by MicrosoftOct 03, 2016

Security was once largely limited to the confines of an on-premises world, but now it must extend to the cloud, as well as a myriad of mobile devices.

Employees and companies now expect increasingly complex interactions with devices, apps, data, and even other users. As many companies struggle to keep up with traditional single-point solutions, and limited budgets, this pressure is creating security blind spots for IT.

In this vision whitepaper, we look into some of the challenges facing IT in the modern world and examine the possible solutions. Including:

  • Moving the control panel for all services from your datacenter to the cloud
  • Increasing the level of control and protection you have over all services
