“Change the perimeter to wherever the user is, and put SIEM between the data and user to gain visibility, he advises. “And the only way to achieve this is to implement a SASE and a cloud-native perimeter, a proxy cloud or firewall that enables you to see everything that a user is doing in accessing data.”

In this video interview previewing an upcoming Information Security Media Group virtual roundtable discussion, Savvides offers insights on:

  • Top security challenges enterprises need to consider before embarking on cloud journey;
  • Evolving compliance standards for gaining visibility and control;
  • The relevance of SASE and CASB in enterprise cloud security.

Savvides is the senior director of strategic business, Asia Pacific, at Forcepoint. He leads a practice that works with Forcepoint's customers and partners to deliver innovative and transformational security projects by taking a whole-business, human-centric approach. Before joining Forcepoint, Savvides spent 14 years at Symantec in various technology, sales, and leadership roles. He was Symantec's CTO for Asia-Pacific & Japan.
