CIO Review >> Magazine >> March - 2014 issue


Security of IT infrastructure networks is being redefined by new trends in WLAN, Data Center, Cloud networking and Virtualization security arenas. IT departments can feel the importance of ensuring robust Wi-Fi capabilities to handle the amount of wireless traffic that is popping up from increasingly sophisticated cellphones, tablets and personal laptops. A transition period has arrived where data centers are focusing on more efficient connections as they appear to be more willing to abandon legacy architectures. The soaring frequency of attacks from hackers has made encrypting data less of a precaution and more of a necessity, leading to Cloud Encryption becoming the go-to method for protecting data in both public and private clouds.
Trends like software defined networking and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy are testimony to the fact that network security implementation market is continually improving. With increasing dependency on data, businesses are no longer able to manage security tasks on their own and it is unreasonable to expect a network administrator to be able to keep a business network in ideal condition and simultaneously keep abreast of leading edge security measures and fast-evolving threat technology. This has created a niche market for network security consultants who are taking the responsibility of securing networks by playing the role of security implementation partners.
While there are plenty of partners to choose from, organizations in order to have completely secured networks, need to pick the best. To help CIOs and other technology leaders to choose the right partner for their requirements, we present to you 10 Most Promising Networking and Security Partners.
