In Part Three, the last installment of an interview with iboss Cybersecurity CEO and Co-founder, Paul Martini, he discusses how organizations can increase their security by putting more focus on their data as it leaves the network. Having tools such as anomaly detection that can detect and contain suspicious outbound traffic will not only increase an organization's security posture, it may keep it from becoming the next data breach headline.

This is Part Two of an interview with iboss CEO and Co-founder, Paul Martini, where he discusses some of the factors behind the critical increase in data breaches impacting all industries. In this part, he discusses why standard security solutions so often fail and what organizations can do to increase their security postures and better protect their data. (Read Part One)
If organizations are going to win against today’s sophisticated data breaches they must balance their security focus between preventing malware, and stopping malware’s mission to steal data. iboss CEO and Co-founder, Paul Martini discusses how a new approach to cybersecurity can increase organizations’ security posture and keep them from becoming the next data breach headline.
The advantages of cloud computing including rapid elasticity, infinite scalability and cost reduction, are difficult to ignore and organizations are embracing the cloud in increasing numbers. Yet, the concern over data security in pure cloud solutions still persists, and is not likely to be assuaged by the frequent high-profile breaches that seem to plague every industry.
With analysts predicting that cloud computing will comprise the majority of IT spend by as soon as next year, it’s clear that adopting a cloud-based secure Web gateway is a logical move for many organizations. Particularly, as they run up against legacy appliance-based SWGs that can’t scale to fit their needs, without adding more hardware, increased costs and greater complexity.
Anomaly detection. What is it good for?
More than malware. Yes, most security marketing campaigns focus on malware. For good reason, too. It’s a common approach favored by skilled attackers and advanced persistent threats (APT).
The downside of this focused approach on malware is the resulting limited view. When malware isn’t the focus, the solution gets pushed aside.
Organizations today are under attack by global, external threats and internal workforce members. According to the Verizon Data Breach Report in 2015 a total of 50% of Data Breaches were attributed to Data Misuse and Miscellaneous errors.
You are no longer just competing with the companies in your local economy.
The internet allows small companies to compete on a global scale. The flipside is now global attackers can target small, local companies previously out of reach.
Much has been said and written about why we continue to see the largest enterprises victimized by data breaches. These attacks have exposed millions of customers to the loss of their private data and caused serious damage to venerable brands such as Sony, Anthem, Target and many others.
