Corporate data spreads across an ever-growing number of applications. Users (employees, contractors, partners, and customers) access those applications over a wide range of devices.
Those devices take different forms: desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones, smartwatches. Each device may use a different operating system.
The locations from where people access your data can be on-premises or off, and in any number of places around the globe.
Data, users, apps, devices, locations—the sheer number of permutations and combinations is mind-boggling. This complex nature of today’s IT environment opens security gaps and exposes your business to undue risk.

They were accomplished through the compromise of passwords.
In many cases, end-user passwords are initially hacked through
various social engineering techniques. Then permissions are escalated to gain access to more privileged accounts — the keys to the
kingdom. This unauthorized access can easily go undetected for
weeks or even months, allowing hackers to see and steal information at their convenience.
Unfortunately, many IT users lack a full understanding of how
privileged accounts function, as well as the risks associated
with their compromise an

But without an enterprise-wide security strategy, your organization is susceptible to a variety of internal and external threats, including account hijackings, malware and employee errors that can lead to brand and communication crises.
Without a standard and secure environment for social media, your organization remains vulnerable to malware, unauthorized or fraudulent accounts, and data leakage.
IT departments are usually the ones who get called in to clean up the mess. Why not take control of the situation now?
