Trends in Data Center Network and IT Security
Data centers were less vulnerable to cyberattacks last year than they were in 2017, according to the Trends in Data Center Network and IT Security survey, with much of the improvement due to better end-user training and education.
In addition, respondents said they were better able to secure connections to public clouds and had improved internal IT processes such as patching and decommissioned legacy hardware. However, the survey also demonstrated some areas where improvement is needed. Data centers still depend too much on traditional passwords instead of adopting multi-factor authentication, behavioral analytics, and other, more modern technologies.
