With the acceleration of digital transformation, it also has broad implications. The way we work and the tools we use are changing at a very rapid pace: including employees bringing their own devices to the work environment and pervasive use of SaaS applications. Because of this, the way organizations manage and secure their data must also evolve. Companies no longer operate solely within their own perimeter. Data travels to more locations than ever before, across both on-premises and cloud environments and it could be At Rest, In Motion or In Use…. While this has helped increase user’s productivity and their ability to collaborate with others, it has also made protecting sensitive data more challenging.
