In an increasingly dynamic and unpredictable world regarding IT security, it's essential to use adequate solutions that boost infrastructures protection, whether local, in the cloud, or hybrid. This article contextualizes the challenges of the new reality of remote work with traditional security solutions. Furthermore, it explains the importance of implementing a solution that has a holistic view of the infrastructure and correlates all suspicious or attack events. Thus, it enhances an improved and updated security to the current reality.
