Next Eight Trends That Are Changing Network Security-6 Next

IPv6 is the new Internet protocol replacing IPv4, long the backbone of our networks in general and the Internet at large. Protecting IPv6 is not just a question of porting IPv4 capabilities. While IPv6 is a wholesale replacement in making more IP addresses available, there are some very fundamental changes to the protocol which need to be considered in security policy. Whether your organization adopts it later rather than sooner, make sure that IPv6 is on your network security agenda.

Technology in the network security space has been through many dramatic changes recently. New mobile operating systems, growing use of personal devices, and Software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery make securing the network a growing challenge. Enhancements in the network infrastructure that connect devices within or across the network make all these developments possible. We’re seeing ever faster network connections, more remote users, and extensive upgrades to mobile networks. We need to think about security policies and where and how to provide protection. The slideshow features eight trends, identified by Sophos, they think will impact network security and your security strategy.
