Challenges in Technology to Meet Enterprise Needs in 2013 and Expectations

Consumers, including our own employees, cannot get their hands on new technologies fast enough, and that trend is showing no signs of slowing down. BYOD and mobility impact our workforce. People want their information anywhere, at any time, and on any device. This requires an additional layer of security; it is no longer just perimeter security, but also data and application security. Mobile device management is becoming critical, and infrastructure must be flexible and secure to support this dynamic.
