Digital Innovation initiatives provide organizations with several benefits but also have their costs in terms of infrastructure and security. New devices deployed as part of digital innovation initiatives increase the complexity of network environments. This increased complexity creates new security challenges.
These initiatives are designed to improve a company’s efficiency and customer experience. However, this is often accomplished by deploying new systems and solutions, including Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices, mobile devices, cloud computing, and new branch locations. These create additional security and operational complexities that open up an organization to new cyber risks.
As digital attack surfaces expand and the cyber-threat landscape evolves, security teams commonly attempt to address new risks through the deployment of point security products. However, the additional complexity associated with monitoring and managing these point solutions, exacerbated by new data protection regulations, leaves security teams unprepared to protect the organization against cyber threats.
