Lookout today announced it will be participating at GISEC 2022, which will be held at the Dubai World Trade Center between 21 and 23 March. With a presence at the CyberKnight stand (C35), Security Service Edge (SSE) technologies will top the company’s agenda as it shows the region how ransomware attacks and cloud data breaches can best be avoided.
Software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platforms are both at risk from the regional rise in threat-actor activity seen during the pandemic. Due to the widespread privileged access traditionally found among users in today’s organizations, a ransomware criminal does not need to look long for an inroad. Organizations have also left doors open in their collaboration tools and other cloud technologies they used to deliver business continuity during the COVID-19 outbreak.
“Apps and data are increasingly residing in the cloud, and users expect seamless access from anywhere on any device. However, security controls have been deployed with disparate on-premises tools that are anchored to data centers. As a result, most organizations have lost control of their data security as they migrate to the cloud,” said Bahaa Hudairi, regional sales director, META, Lookout.
