Your Perimeter Is Everywhere. The world you need to secure is undergoing tremendous transformation. Global expansion, mobile workforces and cloud computing are shifting the location of your applications, data and users. These changes introduce new opportunities for business, but they also create a set of cybersecurity risks.
These tectonic shifts in location strain an organization’s ability to protect data and stop threats consistently.
The mandate for security has not changed, but the ability to deliver protection at each location is at a crossroads. Many organizations, faced with the rising costs of extending the perimeter using conventional methods, are left with few other choices. These consequences place organizations at risk. It is important to understand where the risks lie to evaluate what must be done to bring security back into balance.
In a competitive and rapidly changing industry that’s continually targeted by cyberthreats, creating a secure digital foundation is critical to success. Read this platform brief for a concise summary of how Palo Alto Networks helps retailers secure customer data while thwarting cyberattacks, streamlining security operations, and granting appropriate network access to employees, customers, suppliers and partners.
Governments around the world are undergoing change. Whether reducing data center footprints, virtualizing existing services to reduce costs and "go green", or advancing security strategies to thwart advanced attacks in the field or at home, governments are demanding more from their cybersecurity solutions today.
Cyberattacks are one of the most pressing national security and economic concerns of governments around the world. Government agencies are taking an “all-in” approach to fight back, sharing more cyberthreat information with one another and purchasing threat feeds. However, with the influx of threat data, many agencies are having difficulty using these insights to update their sensors with real-time protection and reconfigure their defenses on the fly. And during a cyberattack, responding quickly is crucial to minimizing potential damage.
