Rethinking Boundaries in a Cloud-First World – With Identity

As enterprise cloud adoption continues to soar, the notion of protecting a network’s perimeter just doesn’t cut it anymore. The new cloud-based reality requires an equally novel approach to ensure that the right users have the right access to the right systems, applications and data.


The key to this nebulous conundrum lies in identity. Gone are the days when it was simply another layer to be considered in a perimeter-focused security model — where all it takes to breach an organization is one person clicking an infected link. With network boundaries blurring and user types diversifying, identity is now the clear nucleus of future-state cybersecurity programs.   


Securing Digital Identities Sans Friction


A flood of nonhuman users has muddied the waters around identity. As digital transformation (DX) adds more and more system resources, IoT devices and bots into the mix, telling them apart from their human counterparts can become quite an undertaking.
