Software/Machine defined networks and the ever increasing complexity of data traffic pose a great number of added security challenges: The evolution of digital technology platforms, intelligent digital mesh and application architectures means that security has to become equally adaptive and fluid. Multi-layered adaptive security and use of user and entity behaviour analytics is going to be essential in managing such risks, relevant to virtually every enterprise. Security in the IoT environment is particularly challenging. Taking data protection and security into account in the earliest stages of design will be necessary for application, solution and enterprise architects.
