Legacy approaches to perimeter security are no longer sufficient to protect the networks of the future. Cybersecurity leaders — especially enterprise CISOs and CIOs — need to take a more sophisticated and granular approach to data protection. This is where data-centric security comes in.
Today’s perimeter is more like tentacles that reach out far beyond the borders of the corporate network and cloud and into your partners’ networks, kiosks and mobile devices. By focusing on the data itself, instead of the perimeter, you can ensure that your data can move freely while still remaining under your control — even if it travels outside of your network. This way, even if a bad actor gains access to your network, they won't be able to access encrypted data without the keys.
So how do you protect your data at rest, in transit or in use? Zero Trust is an option, but is your definition of zero trust the same as your client’s or your business partner’s? Encryption everywhere is an option, but it too has its challenges. Building a data-centric defense requires more than just slapping on a new app or plugging in a new firewall, but do you know what it takes to be fully implemented and manageable?
Implementing a layered approach to data-centric security — one that includes Zero Trust, encryption, federated identity management, and other essential protections — is possible, and it's the future of cybersecurity. In this webinar, Virtru’s Co-Founder & CTO, Will Ackerly and SC Media’s Stephen Lawton discuss the data security challenges that CISOs and security teams are facing today and what to look for when future-proofing their enterprise-wide security strategy. You'll walk away with a deeper understanding of the security landscape, why legacy approaches fail, and why rethinking your security stack is more achievable than you might think.
