With the wave of mobile devices and wearables streaming into the workplace, each offering poses a new potential inroad for a cybercriminals. What with connectivity spreading into every corner of our lives and businesses, it has become increasingly challenging to maintain a clear view of entry points and data flow. Thus, it is necessary to encrypt sensitive data while restricting access and ensuring oversight. Not limiting to IoT, cyber threats have found their way into the Cloud domain too. Since most of the services that organizations uses reside in the Cloud, IT departments often lose oversight and control.
