As organizations embrace the openness of the Internet and move data and applications to the cloud, traditional network security technologies and systems are no longer effective in protecting data as it moves between cloud workloads and applications.
The Internet is now the new network – affording businesses and employees to easily connect with customers, partners, and each other from any location. But as data traverses between locations – it’s increasingly at risk from a multitude of vectors and threat actors.
Privafy’s security-as-a-service application secures data wherever it travels. The company’s cloud-native technology integrates all the functionality of traditional point solutions, such as encryption, firewall, DDoS protection, IDS/IPS and DLP technology, to provide comprehensive data protection as it moves between locations, clouds, mobile devices, and IoT.
Guru Pai joins me on the podcast to talk about the blurring of boundaries between home and the workplace and why it is an unsettling factor for many enterprises. We also discuss why WFH employee solutions often don’t have the same protection/monitoring as in the home office– as result compromises away from work premises will increase –explain some examples like an attacker tailgating into the enterprise, etc.
Guru also provides his five predictions of why and how digitalization and security will change in a post-COVID-19 world. Today’s guest is an industry veteran with over 30 years of experience leading and scaling high-performance organizations ranging from startups to large global firms. A results-oriented executive, Guru co-founded Privafy with a mission to fix the currently flawed approach to securing Data-in-Motion.
Before Privafy, Guru served in senior roles at Verizon Communications, where he was responsible for overseeing the products, services, and operations for all of Verizon’s businesses. Before Verizon, he served in varying senior executive roles at companies such as Sonus Networks, AT&T/Bell Labs and Motorola. Guru is also a successful entrepreneur, having founded technology startups within the networking and big data and analytics industries.
