In some ways, IT teams had a great life in the early 2000s. Data was stored inside data centers and accessed through known ingress and egress points like a castle with a limited number of gates. As a result, organizations had control over exactly whom and what devices could access company data. This is no longer the case. With users accessing cloud applications with whatever networks and devices are at their disposal, those defense mechanisms have become inadequate.

With just about everything delivered from the cloud these days, employees can now collaborate and access what they need from anywhere and on any device. While this newfound flexibility has changed the way we think about productivity, it has also created new cybersecurity challenges for organizations. Historically, enterprise data was stored inside data centers and guarded by perimeter-based security tools.

In quick succession in December, The Apache Software Foundation released information on two critical vulnerabilities in its Log4j Java-based library. The first vulnerability CVE-2021-44228, also known as Log4Shell or LogJam, was reported as an unauthenticated remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability.

Here’s the reality: hybrid and remote work are here to stay. This means access to your corporate data can now come from anywhere, on any device and any network. In order to tackle this new norm, Gartner has defined a new cybersecurity framework called Secure Access Service Edge (SASE).

In Q1 of 2021, 4 in 10 people encountered an unsafe link while using their mobile devices – less than a year later, 5 in 10 people encountered threats in Q3 2021. This trend will only continue as text message, email and social media phishing scams surge.

A decade ago, many were reluctant to move to the cloud. Many felt like they would have to relinquish controls they had within their perimeters. That sentiment has since reversed, where organizations have become more comfortable with cloud technology. The newest concern is about corporate data leaving the cloud, especially as employees expect to work from anywhere. Software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications have enabled people to stay productive from anywhere, but have also amplified security gaps.

More than a year of near-universal remote work has proven that many of us can reliably stay productive from anywhere — whether it be from home, co-working spaces or otherwise. Businesses have caught wind of this, and according to IDC, 60% of them will continue with remote work or implement a hybrid model even after they reopen their offices again. This calls for a paradigm shift in the way we conduct cybersecurity.

How does Lookout define Zero Trust? The concept of Zero Trust architecture has evolved. The last two years supercharged its evolution as collaboration has forced data to go wherever it’s needed and, as a result, you’ve lost the visibility you once relied on to secure your infrastructure. Lookout Chief Marketing Officer Mike Banic speaks with Senior Manager of Security Solutions Hank Schless on how Zero Trust has evolved, the current context around it, and ways to approach the concept in a way that helps it feel more achievable.

The time has come for enterprise risk management to change. Mobile devices have become core to our personal and professional lives, yet most enterprises remain focused on traditional PC endpoints. Although many of the same elements of risk that affect PCs also apply to mobile endpoints, simply extending current PC security controls to your mobile fleet is ineffective. Enterprise risk management needs to evolve to address mobile risks, and security professionals must architect mobile-specific security.
