Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 2014 Data Center Security Strategies and Vendor Leadership: North American Enterprise Survey, which details enterprises’ plans for deploying security solutions in data centers, as well as their thoughts on leading data center security vendors.
“The most significant transformation affecting enterprise data centers today is the adoption of server virtualization technology. It’s the building block of the virtualized data center and the first step towards the eventual rollout of software-defined networking (SDN) in the data center,” notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research.
“That said, buyers are performance hungry, and vendors must have the interfaces, connections, and throughput they require TODAY,” Wilson continues. “Buyers will switch vendors this year to get high-performance security infrastructure for the data center.”
DATA CENTER SECURITY SURVEY HIGHLIGHTS
- 77% percent of respondents need security solutions with increased session handling performance, while around 70% need products with throughput and interfaces to match new high-speed networks (40G and 100G interfaces and 200G+ throughput)
- When it comes to brand strength for key data center security buying criteria, Cisco, McAfee, HP, Juniper, and VMware top the list among those surveyed
- Vendors that have a compelling roadmap for virtualization and software-defined networking (SDN) and concrete plans for products in mid-to-late 2015 stand to gain a head start in the battle for data center security dominance

The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
