Rapid proliferation of cloud services has turned the security landscape on its head. Where firewalls and device management solutions were once enough to protect corporate data, today enterprises must contend with access from unmanaged BYO devices, file sync and share platforms, and new workflows. Traditional security solutions are ill equipped to protect data in this new cloud- and mobile-first environment.

Changes in corporate infrastructure have necessitated a change in approach to security, one that is more focused on data protection across multiple applications. Join Ovum analyst Rik Turner and Bitglass VP of Product Management Mike Schuricht as they explore the challenges of migrating to cloud and widely used solutions like cloud access security brokers (CASBs) that have emerged to solve these challenges.
