The network perimeter is expanding like an elastic to include high-speed 4G and LTE networks, wireless access points, branch offices, home offices, roaming users, cloud services, and third parties accessing your applications and data to perform services. These changes to the size, scope and surface of your network can lead to misconfiguration or change control errors that could lead to security breaches. You’ll need security solutions you can consistently deploy at each device or point of infrastructure. And you need central management to keep on top of the dynamics of this elastic infrastructure and the various layers of security at each endpoint.

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.
