Does your business need a better data security strategy?

Managing data used to mean simply securing documents and emails. But today’s information universe is infinitely larger between pervasive digital technologies and the rapid shift to remote work. Do you know where all your sensitive data lives? And do you know who can access it?​

Cybersecurity is a constantly shifting landscape. As our digital world continues to grow, so do the risks. According to research, 83% of organizations experienced more than one data breach in their lifetime, of which 20% of data breaches are due to internal actors with an average cost of $15.4M when a malicious insider is involved. The potential cost is very significant and cannot be ignored. Data leaks and theft might be overshadowed by external threats in the past. However, they have become one of the most common vulnerability and risks that organizations need to address. 

Recent Microsoft research also shows that 80% of the decision makers purchased multiple products to meet compliance and data protection needs, with majority of them purchase more than three products. Managing a fragmented solution landscape brings more complexity to the security teams with additional costs and efforts to bring siloed signals together while building a unified remediation plan across.
