There’s a rapid increas in the dependency on digital information and the Internet; we cannot do business without information. Hence, its value is increasing and becoming the target for competitors and malicious individuals. Only when lost or stolen, the value of this processed data is fully understood. Companies are losing millions of dollars due to the theft of its intellectual property, an individual seeing his or her Personally Identifiable Information PII illegally scattered across the Web, as well as the critical infrastructure having the provision of its services interrupted.
The Internet or the cloud services are growing ever faster with sensitive data and highly skilled criminals show increasing proficiency in getting around the virtual fences and around the safeguards that keep these clouds protected. Our digital assets are continuously under potential danger and multi-level defenses can provide the needed protection.
