In an era of globalization, traditional boundaries continue to disappear, melting before the relentless pace of 24/7 communications and trade. In this new global reality, "open for business" can mean pooling resources and sharing sensitive information among organizations. The line between participation and isolation can also mark the line between opportunity and risk.



Now more than ever, organizations rely upon business systems and automated policies to guard that line: to root out the threats, to safeguard intellectual property, to protect brand image and privacy. With the emergence of each new technology, the line can shift just a bit.

As enterprises rush to exploit the opportunities, determined insiders and outsiders may seek to exploit vulnerabilities. Consequently, the potential of emerging technologies marks a fundamental change in how organizations should approach accompanying security challenges.

To gain a perspective on the security challenges organizations will face in the next several years, the following questions should be considered: what fundamental technology trends are expected to impact organizations in the next two to five years? Which strategic drivers should serve as catalysts for change? And how can organizations position themselves to profit from the myriad opportunities while managing the risk that inevitably accompanies them?

In the next two to five years, emerging technological and social trends will have far-reaching implications for enterprise security. These include five trends: securing virtualized identities, alternative ways to deliver security, information security in a Web 2.0 world, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), and the security of mobile devices. By focusing on these and other technologies as they emerge, organizations can quickly respond to security challenges.

Securing virtualized environments

For the past two decades, organizations have raced to keep up with changing technology requirements by substantially building out data centers. With operational centers already stretching the upper limits of power, space and staff resources, soaring capital costs and exponential growth in power costs are forcing organizations to examine ways to deliver a more energy-efficient infrastructure.
