Here is new tip number F3TQQJGTEFK2 to say why security is the number one challenge for IT. Corporate IT departments are in midst of a myriad of changes, and security remains the most important challenge according to a SaaS (Software as a Service) in the Enterprise poll conducted by UBM TechWeb in early October.
It seems, that over 31% of their poll respondents chose security, as IT’s main challenge, followed by SaaS, with 23%, and systems integration, with 19%. Interestingly, the management of mobile devices was fourth with just over 15%, followed by big data with 8% and social networks with less than 4%. That only tells part of the story, as the list of challenges is interrelated. The main security challenge is with out a doubt, the emergence of the cloud and the proliferation of SaaS in the enterprise.
For an IT department, SaaS has been viewed as a potential threat to the IT business itself. This is because SaaS has provided corporate users an alternative to in-house IT systems that are at times, overly complex and costly. Though IT’s initial reaction was to regard SaaS as a territorial threat, but that seems to be changing. Indications are IT is now attempting to take control of the implementation of SaaS due to the security risks involved in the unmanaged proliferation of a variety of SaaS systems in the enterprise.
Big data is a database of consumer’s location in or near the store, their social media interactions, their online activity and their physical image and its use is growing rapidly. Since it has become a major marketing vehicle it has also become not just another potential security problem, but in many ways it could prove to become the biggest of all security problems.
This is because; the collection of big data may involve the movement of some of the data in massive volumes via the Internet, which of course increases the chances of data breach. Systems integration of SaaS systems my be one of the potential solutions to IT’s security problem.
Integrating SaaS into the enterprise is a very important step in this solution to IT’s security problems. Systems integrators and some IT departments are skilled at SaaS-to-legacy and SaaS-to-SaaS integration and can protect against having unproductive and potential security threats such as siloed systems, or systems that can’t communicate with each other.
This allows enterprises to be focused on business issues and not on IT issues. However, even with all the changes happening at once, security remains the core business of the IT department.
