Most organisations today have a defined approach to security and have implemented it using well established technologies; the requirements for a security strategy aren’t new after all. But the rapid adoption of cloud & mobile technologies coupled with flexible working practices is probably making the traditional approach to security look at best a little dated and at worst fundamentally flawed.
Today ‘security’ requirements need more than having a firewall in place. Security touches all parts of a network infrastructure, Wireless, Collaboration and Unified Communications, LAN and WAN.
