Ever-expanding connectivity as a result of modern networks is transforming our world. We've seen this for some time with the widespread adoption of cloud computing which has created a digital economy that is fueling new business opportunities through greater speed, efficiency, and agility. Building on the power of the cloud, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is generating unprecedented opportunities for networked connections among people, processes, data, and things and is presenting a $19 trillion global opportunity to create value.
We are now facing a similar evolution with respect to security. To capture opportunities made possible by new digital business models and the IoE, businesses of all sizes must also engage in a secure way. To do this, security must be everywhere – embedded into the heart of the intelligent network infrastructure and spanning throughout the extended network.
