The distributed superfortress: securing tomorrow’s IT infrastructure
As IT infrastructure moves out of the data center, onto the network and into the cloud – security, a top priority for all organisations in a digital world, becomes a more complex problem than ever.
Threat mitigation, the core technologies that organisations rely on to prevent attacks on their infrastructure, has to evolve to meet the needs of world where everything – users, devices and infrastructure itself – is highly distributed. The cloud, the Internet of things (IoT) and edge computing are inevitable consequences of the world’s insatiable appetite for compute power, storage, databases and other services at the point of need. Emerging paradigms such as secure access service edge (SASE) recognise that if the data center is no longer the fortress of enterprise security, then security has to be everywhere.
This event, chaired by Jeff Wilson, Chief Analyst for Omdia’s Infrastructure Security Intelligence Service, looks at the key technology developments in the $20 billion security sector, including the continuing deployments of SASE principles by SaaS, networking and cloud providers. It considers the key drivers for the industry such as accelerating cloud migration, evolving security threats and increasing IoT deployments.
The event will help enterprises and vendors alike to keep track of fast-moving developments in the firewall, end-point security, DDoS prevention, managed security services and security SaaS markets.
The media audience will leave with a better understanding of how these technologies will shape some of the most critical business decisions they are taking today for the future security of their organisations.
