New technology advancements in analytics, big data, mobility, social and cloud computing are radically changing the way businesses interact, operate and compete. For organizations to grow, they must transform their business and its underlying technology infrastructure to move faster, innovate, and stay connected with their customers, suppliers and partners – all while maintaining necessary security standards.
At the center of this change is the new data center; transforming to be highly distributed and software-defined, and scaling at the speed of the business – to be more agile and efficient.
Unfortunately, relying on traditional security won’t get you there. The traditional, well-defined perimeter is long gone. Assets and data are scattered everywhere, both in and outside the enterprise, and assets are highly mobile. The value of perimeter-based approaches continues to shrink. It’s not enough to build a better perimeter – security must be done differently in this new world.
