The selection of the most effective IT technology is a major concern for companies of all sizes, across almost every
industry. In the current economic climate, organizations face the difficult task of prioritizing where to best spend their
limited budgets so that they emerge from these uncertain times as strong, viable companies.
Feeling this pain most acutely are those who deliver critical network services and applications. Despite adverse
economic conditions, they must still meet a variety of requirements, such as:
• Meeting evolving and increasing numbers of regulatory mandates
• Securing IT assets from continually evolving threats
• Delivering security controls for existing and emerging technology solutions
There will be difficult, economically-driven choices to be made, and organizations need to be strategic in selecting the
solutions they will deploy.
