The two major trends around cloud adoption and hybrid work are forcing organizations to change their traditional view of cybersecurity around perimeter-based architecture. According to Myles Bray, chief revenue officer and vice president of global sales, Forcepoint, the industry is undergoing a shift toward a cloud-delivered integrated security platform with a unified set of controls that provides comprehensive protection for the hybrid workforce and a data-anywhere environment.
