It’s pretty clear from this past RSA Conference that the move to a post-perimeter architecture is not only inevitable for enterprises, but also somewhat complex. Besides the need to bring together technical solutions to create a post-perimeter security architecture, CISOs must tackle the problem of how to keep their organization secure, while continuing to respect employee privacy--without hindering their productivity.
To address these aspects of this new security paradigm, Lookout is kicking off a thought leadership series in April, Securing the Post-Perimeter World: An Industry Forum. This will be the first of several dynamic panel discussions with leading experts from across the cybersecurity landscape, and will feature panelists from Lookout, Google and respected security publications.
Work without walls: The price of productivity in a post-perimeter world
Our first panel focuses on the new reality of the way people work today. In today’s post-perimeter world, corporate data is increasingly in the cloud, and at the same time, increasingly accessed by endpoints connecting to networks outside the corporate perimeter.
In fact, “Gartner predicts that 80% of worker tasks will take place on a mobile device by 2020.” (Gartner, “Prepare for Unified Endpoint Management to Displace MDM and CMT” Chris Silva, Bryan Taylor, et al., 15 June 2018). Moreover, in a recent survey conducted by Lookout at RSA, 75% of respondents admitted to accessing corporate data from personal mobile devices and/or public WiFi networks.
So, how do CISOs protect sensitive data in the cloud, while respecting user privacy and enabling productivity? The first panel in our series, Work Without Walls: The Price of Productivity in a Post-Perimeter World, will address these issues and more.
