Over the last few weeks, we’ve been collecting your thoughts on the challenges you face when talking to colleagues on the business side of your organisation on the subject of software-defined network virtualization and security.
From the biggest challenges with data breaches and the most unrealistic inbound requests to tackle them, to the finest analogies or fool proof language used to explain security scenarios, you’ve shared the best and worst cases you and your IT teams have battled with to help the wider business make sense of issues relating to network security.

For instance, continual headlines of high-profile data breaches suggest existing approaches are failing to protect businesses, despite significant investment in this area. In order to protect this data, the business’ brand and ultimately customer trust, there is a need for more transparency through a ‘built-in’ security architecture approach and strategy that everyone in the business can understand.
