Cloud applications and services make it easy for business users to explore new ways to do their jobs with improved speed, flexibility andefficiency. Unfortunately, they also make it easy to circumvent IT authorization, which significantly heightens the risk of data loss and compliance violations.
You probably have at least a vague idea of the meaning of a Trojan horse. Even if you don’t know the whole story of how Greek soldiers snuck into the city of Troy by hiding inside a giant wooden horse, which was thought to be a gift signifying surrender… well, you do now.
Perimeter security is still an essential part of a layered approach to network protection. But firewalls alone are not enough. Next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) are much more effective than traditional firewalls but still lack important features that are critical to detecting the latest threats.
