As an IT leader, you understand how new disruptive technologies can improve your company’s competitive positioning and drive overall business value. Technology trends such as cloud, mobility, social and big data compel companies to move quickly to define and implement next-generation data center architectures and security defense strategies to take advantage of these new technologies.
A lot has happened in the last year across SonicWall Network Security Solutions.
