Today's business and security landscapes have changed over the years, especially in the wake of countless data breaches. We've gone from one device per user to four or five devices per user, multi-cloud environments and a diversity of security threats that includes intractable malware, malicious insiders, compromised privileged accounts and ransomware. It's no secret that organizations need to get serious about security, but that's not always the case.
Productivity concerns are a key reason many companies are hesitant to invest in new security solutions. After all, if security tools impede workflow, adoption will be low and employees, vendors and other external parties might embrace a workaround that in turn introduces new security vulnerabilities into the organization. Achieving that balance between security and productivity is still the ultimate goal of most organizations.
