Today's realities are forcing companies to take a fresh look at the issues of information security and the choice of appropriate solutions.
This statement came from Ruslan Gabitov, the consulting manager for Central Asia and Azerbaijan at the International Data Corporation during the opening of the fourth annual international conference IDC IT Security and Datacenter Transformation Roadshow 2015 in Baku on June 5.
The conference is dedicated to information security and data center transformation.
“For customers the greatest significance still represent the issues related to opposition to targeted attacks and ensuring the continuous operation of mission-critical business processes, as well as the protection of sensitive data,” Gabitov said.
“An additional challenge to experts throws ubiquitous spreading of cloud and virtual infrastructures, as well as the widespread use of mobile access to corporate resources. I am sure today's event will facilitate the fight against new threats and equip you with useful information,” he added.
