Despite massive spend to protect enterprise digital assets, security breaches are still on the rise. The disconnect between the level of investment and the volume and impact of attacks is largely attributed to outdated approaches that favor perimeter protection and point solutions despite a digital supply chain that is more distributed than ever. For these reasons and more, enterprises need to start thinking differently about cybersecurity. Security doesn’t need new products. It needs a new model. One that applies the principles of intrinsic security across the fabric of the organization, from the sales floor to the C-suite, from the infrastructure to the endpoint device. In this Essential Guidance executive brief, learn how intrinsic security differs from traditional security methods, and the steps CIOs need to take to operationalize this model for greater business agility without greater risk.

Many sales organizations continue to operate as they have for years: At headquarters, executives work with sales leaders to set revenue targets for the year. Sales teams receive top-down goals, which cascade across product lines, channels and other business dimensions. The end result is an account-level target, which is assigned to a sales rep. Because most companies do not have an easy way to complete this process—nor do they use a common system of record—they must resort to the quickest and easiest mechanism at hand: spreadsheets, a nonscalable, single-dimensional solution that does not handle complete data sets. This approach also poses challenges across key sales management functions, including planning, execution and optimization.

The rapid adoption of Office 365 means that work created using the Microsoft product contains a large amount of the business world’s sensitive information. In fact, in most enterprises using Office 365, more than half of that highly valuable information — including business plans, sales data, product designs, M&A details and financial forecasts — is contained within Excel, PowerPoint, Word, Outlook and other Microsoft software. Securing the information created with its products has emerged as a primary concern for CSOs, CIOs, IT departments and other C-level executives.
