Security vs. User Experience (87% Say User Experience Is What Counts)

Posted by Mehul Patel on Dec 8, 2020

Is Security an Enabler or an Inhibitor to the Future of Work?

It’s no secret that the drastic, sudden changes in the way we work over the past nine months have negatively impacted user experience and increased cybersecurity risk. Users have been forced away from the consistent application reliability and speed they enjoyed in the office to a work-from-home application experience that is overrun by hiccups, lag, and poor connectivity. In-person meetings have given way to choppy, pixelated video conferencing, during which key points and takeaways can be easily misconstrued. And threat surfaces have exploded across the edge of the network as users log in to critical on-premises business systems, Software as a Service (SaaS) platforms, and cloud apps from unsecured devices at their home office, the dining room table, and their kids’ rooms.

Simply put, Chrome is critical to getting business done, as it is used by nearly two-thirds of devices worldwide.

Shifting Security to the Cloud

Posted by Mehul Patel on Oct 13, 2020

Build a Security Approach that Is Integrated, Simple, and Cloud Delivered

Last month I had the absolute pleasure of chatting with Kenny Yeo, a cybersecurity analyst from Frost and Sullivan and one of the leading security experts in the Asia Pacific region. Kenny and I locked horns during a conference recently, and we started sharing notes on how SaaS security has evolved.

Cloud Apps Are a Point of Attack

Protecting workers is a challenging task—for example, 29 percent of all attacks leverage legitimate cloud services to launch an attack. Once an attacker is inside the network, they can use the same cloud app to siphon or exfiltrate valuable information out of the organization.
