Which is more important: security or speed? This question has long been a source of concern for businesses worldwide, and it can leave many organizations vulnerable to hacks in the name of doing things fast and improving employee work experience. 

Starting today, to foster corporate security and growth, you do not need to compromise your degree of enterprise security. All it takes is a change of mindset and a new, up-to-date cloud security stack.  

To formulate them, we interviewed 3 security leaders from 3 different types of organizations: Vendor, technology partner, and an enterprise client:

The New Security Challenge

During the Pandemic, cloud adoption skyrocketed as remote work became the new normal for most office-based enterprises. This cloud transition resulted in the acceleration of nearly every aspect of IT, except security. In parallel, the transition to the cloud and remote work brought along some new security risks such as insider risks, whether intentional or unintentional. 

These risks prompted businesses to reconsider key notions of their cybersecurity such as user identities, authorization, and safe access. However, the complexity of the new cloud environments made these security processes more complex too, slowing down entire organizations: 

  • Each employee now needs to follow complex security guidelines.
  • Each business process is subject to pauses and delays due to security controls.
  • The organization’s busiest people, who are supposed to use their every moment to generate revenue, carry the load of repetitive compliance tasks.

And what if core teams don’t want to slow down? Consider this all-too-common scenario: Developers and sales managers which don’t fully understand the security risks in their work simply skip security procedures, broadening the organizational attack surface without security even being aware. 

Therefore, security must quickly resolve the long-standing contradiction between performance and protection from sophisticated, developing threats. Essentially, this requires removing security obstacles to enable high-speed business activities, and converting them with quiet guardrails.

Innovation may be the solution. However, with constrained time and workforce for research and assessment, keeping up with the latest innovations and implementing the optimal solution becomes next to impossible. This issue necessitates a new strategy for organizational innovation in general and a new approach to public cloud system security. In their interviews, our interviewees shared their habits and ideas for constant innovation-readiness, for instance:

  • Key information sources to follow
  • Key considerations when evaluating a new solution
  • Guidelines for creating an innovation team

The New Security Stack by GlobalDots

With legacy security solutions requiring so much maintenance and repairing work, staying up-to-date with the latest protections is near impossible. Legacy solutions also tend to work in a linear way, constantly pausing business processes like code deployment and sales, to perform security checks which often involve human attention.

The new cloud security stack resolves these two concerns, of cybercrime and business needs. It has some key features making it:

  • Scalable in both size and types of attacks
  • Consumable by engineering teams

These features are discussed in the full video by GlobalDots’ senior cloud architect, Dror Arie. 

Conclusion

Security and speed are both essential and crucial in a modern competitive business. Achieving both requires a change of mindset, focusing on securing what matters, in a way that core business teams can contain and benefit from.

GlobalDots’ new security stack helps address these issues, enabling its customers to gain more efficient growth and development without sacrificing security.
