After COVID-19, the management of the attack surface has become the main focus of the protection of the corporate network. Related: The importance of “SaaS location management” As digital transformation continues to increase, organizations are increasingly relying on hosted cloud computing powers and data warehouses, i.e. Platform as a Service (Paas), and business tools of all kinds, i.e. Software as a Service (SaaS). I had the opportunity to talk to Jess Byrne, a senior analyst at Forrester, about the implications of cybersecurity. Guest Expert: Jess Bern, Senior Analyst, Forrester Research We discussed how the problem turned into a defense of the perimeter of the cloud boundary. This includes the implementation of new security systems, such as access to the zero trust network, and the implementation of new security tools and strategies.

A new category of tools and services for managing the attack surface is gaining momentum and is rapidly becoming a mandatory option.
