The movement to an all-IP world has been a double-edged sword – on the one hand, it has simplified network communications, while on the other hand it has brought down the security level of traditional networks. The roll out of new technologies such as Cloud, Hypervisors and SDN has paved the way for hackers to launch a whole new wave of attacks.
All this means it is essential to develop and execute a comprehensive security strategy to fortify the network. However, the network itself and its sheer number of interfaces are so complex, that even identifying the flaws is a daunting task. Additionally, meeting statutory requirements also needs considerable expertise.
