Despite all the resources invested in traditional information security approaches, many organizations still fall prey to cyber threats, or find they are unprepared to deal with rapidly blurring enterprise boundaries.
A new active security stance, aligned with business priorities, can help enterprises address the changing demands of a global, mobile customer base and work force, and safely and effectively embrace new technologies to pursue digital business opportunities. Just as important, such an approach can provide proactive data protection and help companies understand potential threats and attack vectors.
An intelligent, secure, agile infrastructure helps organizations anticipate, stay ahead of and react to market changes to remain competitive. It is the enabling foundation of a digital business. Organizations cannot easily become digital businesses unless they can take advantage, safely and effectively, of emerging technologies such as cloud, mobile and analytics that hold the potential of new markets and revenues.
