The IT environment of today, however, is far different, and while more efficient for many reasons, it’s no longer physical or isolated. Therefore, the former ways of protecting the network now seem just kind of archaic and no longer applicable, yet many organizations have failed to update security approaches, which can be a recipe for disaster on many levels.
