How to Fix the Hole in Your Enterprise Security Strategy

The challenges that IT security professionals face are growing more complex by the day. Security threats are constantly evolving. The volume and rate of targeted threats, such as malware, ransomware, DNSbased data exfiltration, and phishing, are increasing. And the fact that companies no longer consist of employees who work a standard, full workday in the same, central location (employees are onsite and remote, full-time and part-time, and located all around the world) further complicates enterprise security. When you consider that most enterprises also extend network access to contractors, partners, and suppliers, the situation becomes even more convoluted.
