Organizations are quickly adopting hybrid IT infrastructure, implementing an assortment of cloud applications alongside traditional in-house apps. The attack landscape is also quickly changing. Attacks have become sophisticated and dangerous, and organizations need to be on constant lookout for any signs of compromise.
While organizations may have secured their on-prem infrastructure, introducing public and private cloud elements into the picture has made the attack target larger than ever, and dramatically increased the number of probable entry points for attackers. This calls for a revision of traditional security systems, and a shift to a unified cybersecurity model—a strategy that safeguards user identities across both on-prem and cloud apps.
