Data protection in the cloud has been key to our customers. Seclore has been committed to providing a great experience from activation to the point when users derive value from Seclore.
With Seclore for Microsoft 365, we built some great features over the last two years, extending the promise of data-centric security to SharePoint Online, OneDrive, and Teams. Customers who opt for Seclore for Microsoft 365 need security to spread across these cloud collaboration applications.
However, making the deployment and enablement of Seclore over the cloud more scalable and reliable for users required more attention.
Changing Consumer Expectations
The ability to access data using any device, or in other words, the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) revolution, has increased the expectation of enterprise users. They want their enterprise applications to be accessible from any location and stay updated with the latest features.
And that’s not an unreasonable expectation.
From the time the CISO recognizes the need for security in their IT infrastructure to when it is successfully installed and configured for users, it often takes several months. It is counter-intuitive that if an organization is a threat of a data breach, they would want to ensure that the proper security controls are in place at the earliest.
The same holds when new vulnerabilities surface, and there are updates to counter them to protect against potential security threats. These updates must be activated at the earliest so that there is no risk of a data breach for enterprises.
Traditionally, these processes are performed manually, resulting in a high chance of an error and a long time to detect and rectify it. It requires a high level of expertise to operate all these processes consistently. As a result, the time to value to customers isn’t optimized.
According to a survey conducted by Digital.ai to understand the application deployment trends, the 1000 respondents, including deployment specialists and CXOs across industries, provided the following response:
Often, the most immediate impact of slow deployment of a security solution is data loss, even with the presence of the cloud.
