The traditional concept of security has changed dramatically and continues to change. Between the dissolving network perimeter, mobile devices, and running workloads on the cloud, the challenge of ensuring a consistent security posture requires a new approach. The focus has shifted to continuous monitoring of all network endpoints wherever they may exist and ensuring data protection by enforcing more thorough and consistent identity policies. Agencies must ensure people logging on to their network are truly who they claim to be. This Enterprise Outlook report “Identity-Driven Security” will help inform your choices and strategies as you navigate this changing security landscape.
