The emergence of organized international data trafficking is driving an unprecedented wave of targeted, malicious attacks designed to steal vital corporate information and valuable customer records. At the same time, the consumerization of IT, widespread adoption of mobile devices and increasing use of unmanaged Internet-based applications has resulted in the proliferation of sensitive data virtually everywhere within the enterprise and rendered ineffective most of the existing security products available today.
Sensitive email data may be valuable to cybercriminals, but it is also the lifeblood of any organization. IT organizations can longer simply keep data locked behind a corporate firewall since virtually all key business processes in today’s global economy require it to cross company boundaries. The widespread adoption and use of mobile devices, use of personal rather than company-owned devices use of unmanaged internet-based application and social networking sites have caused a proliferation of valuable data well beyond traditional corporate data stores.
In addition, most companies today operate as part of global, distributed value chains working in close partnerships with an extensive network of suppliers, sub-contractors and distribution partners. Valuable data is c0nstantly exchanged between these business partners in the course of everyday operations, furthering the proliferation of data beyond those organizations’ traditional "company walls."
