IDG: Protecting the Human Side of Cybersecurity


Most enterprises rely on cloud apps and the convenience, productivity, and flexibility they provide. The reason is simple: enterprises are confident the benefits cloud apps bring to everyday business operations. When it comes to cloud security, however, that confidence isn’t as steadfast.
