Thales the latest to flag digital transformation security opportunity
May 21, 2019 / Simon Quicke
The firm has added to a growing number of examples of growing security risks surrounding digital transformation projects. As customers make moves to roll out digital transformation projects many are doing so against a backdrop of increasing security vulnerabilities. The 2019 Thales Data Threat Report - Europe Edition has given some context to the current situation with a third of enterprises suffering a data breach last year and just under a half not confident to describe their digital transformation deployments as very secure. The risks are high because most European businesses are looking at pushing more sensitive data across a wider range of applications and platforms. “Across Europe, organizations are embracing digital transformative technologies – while advancing their business objectives, this is also leaving sensitive data exposed,” said Sebastien Cano, senior vice president of cloud protection and licensing activity at Thales.
