What To Do When You've Already Lost Control of the Network: A New Playbook in the Modern Era of BYOX


Session 7, 10:45 - 12:15 | Tuesday, July 11, 2017             


In today's age of BYOX, how do you maintain security when you have already lost control over the entire security chain or parts of it? The prevailing approach to dealing with employees who have adopted cloud services is to apply a legacy approach: block the services and apps.

Employees in masse have embraced BYOX (devices, apps, what's next?) not because they have bad intentions but because they want to be more productive and collaborative. As such, any type of security that will inhibit their productivity and convenience will be circumvented. Users will always find a way around. Therefore, it's imperative to assume that if employees can find a way around security to improve their user experiences, they will.

People and their mobile devices and adoption of cloud-based apps and services are now moving around way too much, and much too fast, for outdated cybersecurity strategies to be effective. Consider that the number of cloud services an average large enterprise employs is approximately 600-700.

For enterprises to try to identify, control or block the hundreds of cloud-based apps that users have employed is frankly unsustainable. The current cloud access security broker approach will never truly catch up to the explosion of SaaS solutions and cloud storage that enterprises must defend against, making this a category of solutions perpetually in development and incredibly slow and expensive.

In this presentation, Coronet will share with attendees some considerations on what do to achieve security without affecting employee productivity.
