Why The Future Of Security Is Context-Based
For years, business organizations followed a rather reactive approach to managing IT security. Every time there was a new type of attack, security vendors would come up with a new solution to combat that threat. This approach worked very well till users accessed computers in controlled work environments. The company could easily monitor incoming and outgoing network traffic. But in today’s multi-channel environment, where users stay connected through a plethora of mobile devices and web-based apps, the security threats and vulnerabilities have only increased. According to PWC’s Global Information Security Survey 2015, the number of security incidents detected in 2014 was 48% higher than the previous year.
