Digital Transformation, driving organizations to rethink their security strategy

Organizations face an explosive growth of devices, causing a huge visibility gap. By 2020, there will be 29 billion connected devices. Thousands of new devices come into the workplace, connected “things” are now pervasive in critical infrastructure systems. Data centers move to the cloud, knowing what is on a hybrid data center network is a challenge. Everything is connected. Attackers only need one entry point to cause havoc such as business disruptions, hijacked data or revenue losses. In this session, we will discuss the trends that drive “the invisibility of things” and associated risks.
