Easy and efficient protection is made possible due to the deep integration of technologies for data protection, security, and authenticity, and hybrid cloud architecture designed for privacy.

Innovate or Die: Key takeaways from the edge at Gartner’s Infrastructure and Operations Conference 2019

One of the highlights of Gartner’s recent Infrastructure and Operations Conference 2019 was the opening keynote. If I had to sum up what Gartner’s three expert presenters covered in three words they would be: “Innovate or die.”

Frankly, this is no big shock. Gartner (as well as IDC and Forrester) have been preaching about digital transformation for years – decades even. However, it is the accelerating pace of change that had everyone at IOCS 2019 really beating this “war drum” even louder and harder.

Protect infrastructure by blocking obvious vulnerabilities

In 1966, Robert F. Kennedy delivered a speech that cited an ancient Chinese curse: “May [you] live in interesting times.” He continued, “Like it or not, we live in interesting times. They are times of danger and uncertainty, but they are also the most creative of any time in the history of mankind.”

That measured perspective, simultaneously seeing the glass as half-empty and half-full, is a useful one to adopt when considering infrastructure vulnerabilities in 2019.

Over the years, working with and listening to thousands of customers of all sizes,  we’ve learned a lot about what they need, their challenges, and the effect of what we do in what they do. We’ve also noticed that some concepts, or the words that simply represent them, are just scary to our IT friends. Scalability is one of them.
