Most enterprises today are rich in data, including customer information, financial data, intellectual property, trade secrets, employee data and more. With a single click, employees or hackers can send this valuable data outside of the organization.
Over the years, most organizations have acquired multiple tools for protecting data, including data loss prevention, web gateways, and cloud access security brokers. But these tools are managed by a variety of personnel and policies, making it difficult to manage data enterprisewide. In the third installment of this podcast series by Skyhigh Security on data protection, Nate Brady, enterprise architect at Skyhigh Security, shares why organizations need to look for new solutions.
“Each of these products is going to work a little differently, and it ends up being a confusing situation for employees because they don’t know what’s allowed and what isn’t because the policy often is inconsistent,” Brady said. “It’s a lot of point solutions all over the place.”
When it comes time to refresh these tools, Brady said organizations should look into the latest security service edge and secure access service edge solutions because “it’s in our best interest to simplify things and reduce the probability that we’re going to make an error.”
In this podcast with Information Security Media Group, Brady discusses:
- What organizations need to protect and why they need to protect it;
- How to simplify data protection with SSE;
- How organizations are using SSE to protect enterprise data.
