Technology is a two edged sword. On one side, the introduction of new applications, devices, and web services makes people's lives and jobs easier and more productive. On the other, the increase in user mobility, the migration to faster data pipes and the exchange of more information open businesses up to new threats and increased susceptibility to cyber attacks. The job of an IT administrator is never finished as security threats are ongoing and endless. The introduction of new technology in the workplace, often by employees, keeps IT managers constantly on guard as they balance network accessibility against data protection.
