“In today’s hyper-connected world, data moves between various environments such as multi-cloud, IoT, and mobile devices. It is important for modern networks to enforce consistent security, yet preserve functionality in the network, so that essential workflows are protected along their entire data path as data travels through multiple environments. That is why this year’s regional 361° Security conference focuses on Security-Driven Networking, where networking and security are integrated and combined. This concept of building a network around security as a foundation, allows enterprises to architect and deploy business-critical applications and services faster than ever before without compromising security throughout the network,” said Peerapong Jongvibool, vice president for Southeast Asia and Hong Kong at Fortinet.
“The demands of digital transformation are forcing organisations of all sizes and industries to reassess the effectiveness and scalability of existing legacy security infrastructure. Networks in sensitive sectors such as government, financial services, and healthcare, often hold highly-valuable data on individuals, financial transactions, and critical infrastructure. This data-rich environment makes them the target of a variety of threats like ransomware, phishing, and DDoS, which aim to halt, extort, or disrupt networks. Business leaders and IT professionals must equip themselves with forward-looking strategies to cope with increasingly complicated network environments. As organisations develop a meshed and hyper-connected networking infrastructure that spans ecosystems, businesses, societies, and personal lives, security needs to do the same,” said Anthony Lim, principal consultant for Southeast Asia and Hong Kong at Fortinet.
