What is digital transformation?
Digital transformation—the use of digital technologies to help organisations become more agile, efficient, productive, and competitive—touches all areas of the enterprise. In some cases, it is creating entirely new classes of business. Cloud services, from software to infrastructure to storage, are key enablers of digital transformation.
The massive adoption of cloud technologies and the vast mobile workforce are disrupting 30 years of security and networking practices. The traditional hub-and-spoke network, once the centre of the enterprise, is giving way to a direct-to-cloud architecture, providing more seamless access to the applications and services users need. This change also requires security to be decoupled from the network in favor of security that protects users and data regardless of network.
