We are all witnessing how technology impact business, and how this is shaping up the future of enterprise IT. Current and emerging technologies - mobile, cloud, big data, social - help businesses innovate, and dynamically engage with their clients in new and innovate ways. At the same time, we also see these raise questions about risk and security.
How can we enterprises embrace a mobile strategy so that they can quickly deliver secure mobile applications?
Who do you know and who do you trust in this age where each of us have different digital identities and representing our personal, enterprise, and social personas?
How can you have protection and monitoring around application workloads in a cloud environment?
How can high value data asset be secured and monitored?
If you think about it .. security is a multi-dimensional puzzle - across People, Application, Data, and Infrastructure. While siloed technologies may not provide a holistic view, we believe that every enterprise needs Security Intelligence that gives better view of their security and risk posture.
Next week at the IMPACT conference at Las Vegas, we will be discussing many of these topics, share our point of view, and hear from you about what you see happening. Please join us in at the security sessions - be it about security intelligence, mobile security, identity, or security on expert integration systems, as well as at our security peds at the Expo center.
I look forward to meeting you in person, discuss about trends or your security challenges, and helping you adopt technology shift with confidence!
