As CIOs increase their influence and presence in the boardroom, the pressure to establish confidence in the company’s IT architecture increases substantially. Without a secure and trusted enterprise, the confidence in the CIO’s role and decision making comes into question. So, as CIOs recommend exploration of new delivery models that improve the company’s agility and growth possibilities, the security of those models must be bulletproof. Subsequently, as enterprises boost their investment in cloud and virtualization technologies, it's increasingly important to defend these digital outposts from a new wave of sophisticated threats. This requires both customers and suppliers to architect a security framework capable of stopping known threats and adapting quickly to block new ones, such as virtual machine attacks.
In this morning roundtable, attendees will hear from subject matter experts and discuss public cloud and SaaS strategies for the datacenter and explore the emerging threat landscape and how to re-architect security defenses in virtual environments.
