Big Data

We’ve all seen the dramatic transformation IT has undergone in recent years— inevitably evolving from a cost center to a strategic business partner.

While this level of telecommuting represents potential savings to enterprises (reduced office space and telecommunications costs, plus added worker productivity), combined with the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend, it does bring new risks. Security, availability, and reliability are at the top of the list.
