We all want the same - Avoid making the headlines. Retail has been particularly targeted. We have all heard about the large breaches at big retailers but in reality no corner of the retail sector has been spared. The distributed nature of the retail business and the fact that they are one of the primary touch points for credit card data make retail specifically vulnerable to cyber criminals. A lot of what we assumed as granted in security is no longer valid. The rapid adoption of mobile, cloud and Saas makes protection focused on the perimeter of your enterprise ineffective and inefficient.

  • Apps are off the network
  • Users are off the network
  • Cloud and virtualization are taking your infrastructure out of your control

The tools one reserved for the most advanced attackers are available to all

All of this is creating the perfect storm for cyber attackers, who are taking advantage of the same trends we are using to help push our businesses to the next level for their own ends
