Tech's biggest event, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), garners more than 200,000 attendees and never has a lack of innovation or head-scratching technology. From an entire section devoted to virtual reality to a futuristic Batmobile model, attendees collectively navigate through 3,800 exhibitors and 2.5 million square feet of space to experience the most advanced technologies. Of course, 2016's show had no shortage of wearable tech, tablets and hybrid devices on display.

With all these new products being introduced to company networks, the opportunity for vulnerabilities and security and compliance complications continues to escalate for IT teams. In 2016, IT teams can expect to deal with the onslaught of wearable devices, ensuring continuous infrastructure and deploying new technologies. The products introduced at CES will only add to the complexity for IT teams' never-ending efforts to manage and keep up with the hot tech trends.
