Enterprises that fail to deploy secure, perimeter-free global IT networks within the next three to four years face extinction, according to two recognized IT security experts.
Becky Bace and David Lacey made the prediction during a conference call organized by the Jericho Forum, an international IT security thought-leadership association dedicated to advancing secure business in a global open-network environment.
During the session, Bace and Lacey said enterprises need networks that can quickly and securely connect to skyrocketing numbers of new business opportunities and that networks protected by traditional corporate perimeters cannot accommodate global connectivity demands.
“The value of a network increases exponentially with the number of participants, therefore if you are going to wall off yourself from the rest of the world, you’re not going to get as much value,” said Lacey.
