Cloud computing continues to become a more prolific and revolutionary technology, leading many firms to migrate applications, data and other assets into these advanced environments. As change is one of the more consistent creators of risk in IT security, cloud migrations must be handled properly and in such a way that maintains protection of sensitive information and systems.
There is no denying that enterprise mobility has been one of the most challenging trends for businesses and others when it comes to security throughout the past several years. Studies indicate that decision-makers have largely struggled to strike the right chord when writing policies, enforcing the protocols and ensuring seamless protection of data traveling into and out of mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and portable computers.
Security has been one of the more exciting themes in big data's progression throughout the past several years, as more organizations are looking to improve threat mitigation and reduce risk through the use of modern intelligence and analytics solutions. Because so much valuable information is generated both within a company's infrastructure and outside of it every day, the use of big data for security purposes has proven to be a next-generation pursuit with significant advantages to come.

Data security remains a major issue for virtually every household, government agency and business in the world, yet the best practices and actual threats seem to be misunderstood. Whether it is because total protection is not attainable or individuals have been desensitized from data breaches because of how frequently they occur, exposure and theft are running amok.

When enterprise mobility first became a core business strategy, studies indicated that the majority of companies were not quite striking the right chord with respect to comprehensive management of devices, users, applications and backend systems. Because this was one of the first hints at what has become the major trend of consumerized IT, it made sense that the average firm was struggling to get the policy and management angles into the right positions.

One of the main themes in the IT security community throughout the past five years has been the threat that mobile devices and applications present to business data and systems. At first, reports found that companies were far behind the eight ball, not putting nearly enough time, energy or budget into the development of strong mobility security strategies, procurement of the right monitoring tools and otherwise, but this then became a bit brighter as time went on.

The private sector has become a more robust and diverse battleground of late, with smaller, medium-sized and larger enterprises seeing the playing field level with greater consistency as the years go on. One of the key drivers of the level playing field has been modern IT, although most notably cloud computing solutions that have made it more possible for entrepreneurs to get their feet on the ground and gain traction without as much financial backing.

Although relatively modest forecasts have pegged the Internet of Things to become more prominent a few years down the road, this has simply not been the case thus far, as public sectors and private businesses have rushed to embrace the trend. When looking at headlines regarding lacklustre sales of smartwatches and other wearables, business leaders might take that as a sign that the IoT is not necessarily catching on and, as such, does not demand their attention.
Topics: Data Management
So much of the conversation regarding network monitoring is often centred around IT security, which is certainly a good focal point given solutions' abilities to reduce threats and drive the efficiency of system, user and data protection. However, it is certainly worth noting that network monitoring is also a key component of IT management even outside of the security discussion, as few tools can compare to the abilities of these ones when it comes to avoiding expensive bouts of downtime and other issues.
