IDC Technology Spotlight: Securing the Blended Data Center

In this exclusive IDC Technology Spotlight titled “Securing the Blended Datacenter”, IDC Analysts including John Grady, Christian Christiansen, and Charles Kolodgy discuss how security must change to address the new dynamics of Virtualization, Cloud and Software-defined Networking (SDN) technologies.

As Data Centers become more shared, automated, and elastic, typical IT deployments will become a mix of Virtual, Physical and Cloud resources. Read the report as IDC discusses:

  • How Data Centers will blend on-premise and external, less-trusted cloud environments, putting sensitive data at risk
  • The key drivers for security: scalability, management, and protection
  • Which Network Security segments, including Firewalls, will contribute or grow fastest in the Data Center,
  • Fortinet’s rise as a top-three network security vendor and the role of Physical and Virtual Network Security Appliances and Unified Security Management for the cloud
