Whitepaper: Take your security to new heights: The Cloud

by Cisco UmbrellaMay 11, 2018

The cloud — at one point it was a revolution in the workplace. Now it is simply accepted as an efficient way to get business done. The increase in mobile devices and cloud applications has changed everything, from where we work, to how we communicate, collaborate, and store information. Has your security kept pace with this change?

Most of today's IT security was built to protect a well-defined network infrastructure, but that is yesterday's architecture. When users and assets move outside the network perimeter where the traditional security stack can no longer protect them, your enterprise is exposed to an entirely new set of risks. And with more apps and sensitive data living in the cloud or on mobile devices, gaps emerge that leave organizations susceptible to attacks.

Read this flipbook to see how you can take your security to new heights. We'll explain the challenges driving the shift in the market and how you can take advantage of these changes and improve security for your organization.
