Eight Trends That Are Changing Network Security

  • Eight Trends That Are Changing Network Security-
    Today’s connect-from-anywhere road warriors regularly test the traditional boundaries of network security. Firewalls are increasingly porous as employees access services from devices such as iPads, Android phones, tablets and PCs — all of which require security that mirrors but also improves upon PC solutions. Extending connectivity to small branch or home offices is also a focus for many organizations. Your network strategy needs to consider how to secure access across platforms over an expanding network perimeter.

    Today’s connect-from-anywhere road warriors regularly test the traditional boundaries of network security. Firewalls are increasingly porous as employees access services from devices such as iPads, Android phones, tablets and PCs — all of which require security that mirrors but also improves upon PC solutions. Extending connectivity to small branch or home offices is also a focus for many organizations. Your network strategy needs to consider how to secure access across platforms over an expanding network perimeter.

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.
