    Security in the datacentre

    Over the years security in the datacentre has evolved. Some organisations are consolidating their security assets deployed in the data centre to reduce cost and simplify management, other are using virtualisation to maximise investment , utilisation and performance where others are using automation to secure consistency across the business, using technologies such as network segmentation. Securing the datacentre does have it’s challenges. Traditional security measures such as traditional firewalls are not suitable, with most of them being at the edge of the datacentre, so once an attacker gets through they are free to move around the datacentre. Organisations need to also ensure they are keeping on top of compliancy and patch management and with increased use of Shadow IT, the security implications are very significant.
