Eight Trends That Are Changing Network Security

  • Eight Trends That Are Changing Network Security-
    The threat of attacks on Web applications to extract data or to distribute malicious code persists. Cyber criminals distribute their malicious code via legitimate Web servers they’ve compromised. But data-stealing attacks, many of which get the attention of media, are also a big threat. Organizations used to focus security investment on PCs and preventing conventional malware from spreading to them and onto the network. Now, you need a greater emphasis on protecting Web servers and Web applications. Similar challenges lie ahead for emerging technologies such as HTML5.

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.
