Social Media Security Threats Revamped from Detection to Prevention Mode

By CIOReview | Tuesday, May 17, 2016

REDWOOD SHORES, CA: Cloud has improved portability among employees who are increasingly accessing corporate data that is housed in third party applications. These devices or applications are not owned or controlled by corporate enterprises over third party networks. With this paradigm shifts, the CIO has gone from controlling everything to now controlling almost nothing: neither of the data, device, nor the network; just in a span of few years. To prevent the encroaching potential security threats in social media, Soteria Intelligence, a social media threat assessment company joins iSheriff, a cloud-based enterprise device security solutions provider.
