If your company is undergoing its digital transformation in order to achieve greater levels of agility, scalability, and efficiency, you may have realized the following correlation between size and security. As your digital environment increases, so does the number of attack opportunities into your network. As enterprise density escalates, so does your attack surface. The question then becomes, is the continued exponential growth of our networks today sustainable from a security point of view?
As enterprises modernize their IT infrastructure to meet evolving business demands the conversation of security is always top of mind. More and more companies are now managing a distributed enterprise, with remote offices and branches that are forcing them to move away from a highly centralized IT model to one that extends to the edge. How will your security strategy have to evolve to meet these new security demands as you’re now securing more than just the perimeter? As one of the emerging leaders in SD-WAN technology, we looked at some tips from Fortinet on this topic. Check out these key requirements for distributed enterprise firewall security.
The interconnected worlds of today see increased access to more things at faster speeds. Wireless networking made these processes even faster, with IT administrators able to add more storage space, computing power, and other capabilities at the push of a button.
Data center architectures have continually evolved to meet the needs of mobile, social, big data, and cloud applications--and enterprise security solutions have evolved as well to support the new security needs of these applications in distributed data centers.
Today’s workers are experiencing more freedom thanks to the explosive adoption of mobile devices in the enterprise. However, with an increasing amount of devices connecting to the network, IT administrators now have an overwhelming amount of information to monitor, and most of the time there are gaps in visibility to all of the devices trying to connect to the network. Aruba Clearpass offers your IT department a way to protect your data while allowing authorized users the ability to access information on the go or in the office.
With an increasing number of enterprises investing in digital transformation and the software defined data center (SDDC), IT leaders are getting accustomed to managing overwhelming large volumes of data and business applications. With this shift, network security is proving to be a foundational (and required) layer when it comes to building the data center needed to drive business of today.
With the expansion of the Internet of Things, the BYOD movement and emerging wireless technologies, you may be realizing its time to invest in a more modern approach to networking security in order to stay competitive, and secure, in the global environment.
