We at Ping Identity have identified six trends with a common thread that have changed the business landscape and, in essence, defined what smart business is by their proper utilization. If your enterprise can secure and support these correctly, it's proven that you'll win in more ways than one.
Cloud / SaaS: Cloud-based applications are now ubiquitous due to their nimbleness, easy implementation and useful features.
Application Programming Interfaces (APIs): APIs are what enable apps to work together and make them so dynamic.
BYOD and the Internet of Things (IoT): Mobile devices and other 'things', such as copy machines, are now 'smart' -- making them essential tools for business.
The Omnichannel: Users now use multiple devices simultaneously while interacting with a brand.
Expanding Customer and Partner Access: Enterprises are more connected than ever by giving enhanced access to partners and customers via cloud-based apps.
Hackers, Bugs, Spies and Big Data: Big Data provides many business advantages; however, cyber hackers, bugs and spies continue to advance.
What's the common thread with all of these trends? They underscore Identity and cannot be properly utilized or protected within the firewall or with traditional security systems.
What smart businesses know is that you must address today's IT trends with new security technology -- otherwise, your enterprise will be vulnerable and lose agility. While this may seem daunting and expensive, it's actually pretty simple and has proven to make money for enterprises among other benefits (read this summary for a breakdown).
