Is a Next-Generation Secure Web Gateway the answer to securing today’s Internet use?

Today's Internet is very different from the 1990s when SWGs were first implemented. Back then it was all about websites - today it's all about cloud. Around 85% of an enterprise's Internet traffic is typically to cloud services, and this is why CASB must be implemented inline alongside SWG. And since cloud can significantly increase the risk of data exfiltration, DLP is the obvious addition to a unified platform. This roundtable will explore the evolution of the Internet from web to cloud, the arrival of cloud-based threats, and the cloud-enabled risks to your data.

Clouding your judgement or an invaluable asset

Cloud computing is no longer a new technology with the cloud market now worth $325bn and bringing with it digital innovations that now define the modern business world. But this path to success was by no means assured. The cloud by its nature requires that enterprise IT teams relinquish some control of their systems and data to third parties. Preventing widespread adoption was the belief that cloud computing was less secure than on-premise systems and that opening up to cloud services would seriously expose businesses.

Given cloud adoption rates today, to some extent these concerns have been overcome. But how does Cloud Computing play in your organisations IT strategy today and in the future? Join our excellent networking dinner to discuss with your peers and experts from Nominet to understand how cloud computing can be an business enabler.
