Worried about all of those nasty hackers lurking out there on the network? So are we. It’s evident that the scale and complexity of network and data-center attacks is growing more quickly than ever before – which is why we’ve put together the 2016 Next-gen Infrastructure Security Report
As the threats grow in scale and scope, billions of dollars have poured into the security technology space to innovate new ways to keep up with the bad guys. At the same time, networks are evolving toward a software-defined model, presenting new challenges for security technology that can monitor and secure software-defined networking (SDN) environments.
The SDxCentral research team believes these trends are converging, as software-defined anything (SDx) technologies including SDN and NFV offer new opportunities for security, using techniques such as micro-segmentation and data analytics.
Our research indicates that there is growing demand for new breeds of security technology, geared for SDx architectures. Our report – significantly expanded from last year’s — includes detailed survey data from end users who indicate which security functions and products they are looking at as well as the largest challenges they face.
Read our report to get a fresh look at security for data center infrastructure and new models such as the Internet of Things (IoT).
This report covers:
- Cybersecurity landscape – a look at trends in the marketplace
- Drivers for change – why SDx security is increasing in importance
- Capabilities to look for in next-gen cloud and SDx infrastructure security solutions
- Challenges in deploying and executing infrastructure security solutions
- Benefits of security technology geared toward data center and cloud models, including as advanced threat protection, micro-segmentation, and analytics.
- Examples of innovations and use cases for SDx security technologies and products
- Addressing new markets in data center and IoT.
