New network security threats arise on almost a daily basis, as users explore new ways of working and hackers develop increasingly sophisticated tools and techniques. Modern users expect the ability to bring their own smartphones and tablets to the workplace and interact with sensitive business information seamlessly from their home or office, and while on the road.

At the same time, the network security threat landscape has shifted significantly over the past decade. The greatest risk to enterprise network security is no longer the isolated individual in a basement seeking the thrill of breaking into a new environment. Instead, today’s adversary is most often an organized, highly skilled team of attackers with a clear objective.
