As a retail security professional, you are challenged with maintaining a constant state of PCI compliance and keeping your infrastructure safe using best-of-breed security solutions that help, rather than hinder, your quest to validate your systems. Endpoint protection that is based on detecting known malware is demonstrably ineffective —and has the potential to create numerous inefficiencies across your organization. In addition, constant updating of security patches and antivirus software libraries can slow response times and leave endpoints vulnerable to APT attacks.
Besides potential breaches of your customers’ personal information, as well as damage to your brand, a lack of endpoint control can also put you at risk for steep PCI noncompliance and regulatory penalties—fines that can range anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 per month.
Recent high-profile data breaches at brand name retailers, highlight the need to protect your company’s reputation and your customer’s personal information.

As enterprises large and small shift their information to the cloud, an explosion of SaaS tools are making it easier than ever for employees to collaborate and innovate. Much of this sharing is being done across time zones and physical locations, by workers who are telecommuting, working in shared or public spaces, and from open networks. Information is stored on central, third-party servers that are accessible across the company and the world by anyone with an internet connection.

In today's business environment, organizations of all sizes are struggling to maintain the advanced IT capabilities they need to be competitive while reining in cost and complexity. Shifting to off-premise hosted models, such as software-as-a-service (SaaS) and business process outsourcing, is a common activity undertaken to manage costs.
One of the main challenges businesses face in adopting cloud and SaaS delivery models is the task of synchronizing data and integrating the multitude of systems already in datacenters with new cloud-based applications, not to mention within the cloud itself. Traditionally, this required organizations to leverage existing tools as well as custom development.
