With the new norm of the ‘work from anywhere’ hybrid workforce comes the collective hurdle: how are organizations expected to evolve at a record pace and ensure the security of their sensitive data at the same time?
Data protection is consistently listed as one of the top 10 concerns to keep CISOs awake at night. This comes as no surprise—the negative implications that arise from security vulnerabilities with weak data protection are evident.
A recent example is Clearview AI INC1, who was recently fined $20m for non-compliance of GDPR, including the poor collection and processing of user data. Needless to say, the burden organizations face on how best to manage and process critical user data in order to avoid legal complications and penalties is a heavy one.
It’s evident that with the introduction of elastic cloud computing the public cloud adoption has been increasing exponentially, which means more data is being shipped and stored on the cloud services providers platform. This could be a potential advantage for the bad actors, who are always looking for weaknesses or vulnerability in the system.
With the explosive growth of cloud service, more and more organizations are onboarding software-as-a-service (SaaS), infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solutions based on business requirements and an ever-growing demand to meet the market potential.
Various SaaS solution providers, such as Microsoft 365, Google Suite, and other known collaboration providers such as Box, Zoom, Teams, and Webex are stepping in to meet the work-from-home user workforce requirements and keep business units connected, irrespective of location. This allows employees to be available from anywhere, at their convenience.
The harsh reality is that organizations are still catching up on how best to provide data protection in the cloud and beyond, without compromising data. This disconnect can happen daily in many ways, such as where remnants of data may be left on a work device or similarly where data is downloaded from cloud services but kept locally. And so, the challenge continues.
How do we overcome the gap of what’s required to protect on the endpoint and how to extend the data security control to the cloud and beyond?
Furthermore, how can organizations set up consistent and pervasive data protection irrespective of their user’s location and status?
Skyhigh Security aims to bridge the gap with a data protection platform that enables users with corporate devices to extend their data protection to the cloud, web and private apps. Should you wish to expand your current data protection from your device to a cloud platform, Skyhigh Security’s unique cloud DLP plays a vital role in protecting this data on the cloud platform.
Whether your enterprise data is stored with Microsoft, Google, Amazon or other, regardless of the location. Skyhigh Security’s pervasive data protection for cloud services kicks in when traditional DLP hands over the security to cloud DLP.
Why should you consider a Skyhigh Security Combination for your cloud data protection?
Skyhigh Security is the industry-leading comprehensive, cloud-native SSE security platform that converges a set of security solutions, providing complete visibility and control over your data from a unified console, no matter where it resides.
One of the unique capabilities worth elaborating on is our data protection classification, which can be implemented for cloud, web, private app and on-premise solutions once defined.
