Cloud data security is a serious challenge most organizations face today. The cloud was designed for collaboration where every file or data element can be shared with anyone halfway around the globe. Cloud data can also be copied, duplicated, modified and passed along very easily. To illustrate the challenge, think about 100 different variations of a redlined sensitive contract that need to be protected, and consider that each variant can have different access privileges.

Walk into any grocery store today and you’ll see shelves of products claiming to be “organic” and “natural”, but, if you carefully inspect the ingredients, it becomes evident that most of the products are neither natural nor organic. Shoppers need to do their homework and look beyond the shiny labels. Security integrators are in a similar situation when it comes to cybersecurity.
