The enterprise is in motion, both literally and figuratively. The traditional enterprise edge and lines of demarcation are disappearing, and with it, conventional views on security and access. Employees are mobile, demanding on-the-go access to data and applications across a diverse set of platforms and operating systems, while IT is expected to provide a scalable and reliable infrastructure to support this mobility spanning both private and public networks. Even data is mobile, with virtualization providing a platform upon which applications are no longer bound to a single server or confined to the IT data center. In reality, the cloud extends from the data center to the new enterprise edge.
