Stay ahead of the evolving threats.
Organized crime is driving the rapid growth and sophisticated evolution of advanced threats that put entire website ecosystems at risk, and no organization is safe.
The stealthy nature of these threats gives cybercriminals the time to go deeper into website environments, very often with severe consequences.
The longer the time before detection and resolution, the more damage is inflicted. The risk and size of fines, lawsuits, reparation costs, damaged reputation, loss of operations, loss of sales, and loss of customers pile up higher and higher.
The complexity of website security management and lack of visibility across website ecosystems is further impacted by the fact that it is nearly impossible to know how and where to allocate resources.
Website security must be evolved in line with these growing threats and challenges.

Cloud services are a pillar of a digital transformation,
but they have also become a thorn in the side of many
security architects. As data and applications that were
once behind the enterprise firewall began roaming
free—on smartphones, between Internet-of-Things
(IoT) devices, and in the cloud—the threat landscape
expanded rapidly. Security architects scrambled to adjust
their technologies, policies, and procedures. But just
when they thought they had a handle on securing their
cloud-connected enterprises, new business imperatives
indicated that one cloud wasn’t enough.
Modern enterprises operate in a multi-cloud world,
where the threat landscape has reached a new level of
complexity. Security teams are juggling a hodgepodge
of policies, threat reports, and management tools. When
each cloud operates in its own silo, the security architect
has even more difficulty supporting the CISO or CIO with a
coherent, defensible security posture.
