Why We Think This Way
Cloud technologies have made it easier than ever to get a new business off the ground. But, they have also made it much easier to accidentally expose sensitive data and become complacent with a “well, it’s in the cloud so we don’t really need to worry about it” attitude.
Ubiquitous connectivity has made it easier than ever to stay connected. It has completely changed the way that people look at work. But, it has multiplied the ways and methods that data thieves and other financially motivated criminals target even small companies.
Tech-savvy employees can use tech more efficiently to do their jobs and to get work done from more places. But, the“work anywhere, from any device” mentality that comes with those employees has eroded traditional network security and made laughable the idea that sensitive corporate data is all in one secure place.
These are not the types of concerns that “take care of themselves” or that are typically handled comprehensively by someone who “knows computers.” Filament was founded to bring expert technology leadership and management to businesses without such expertise in-house.
