Virtualization of the network is transforming the way IT leaders configure, provision, and secure their data centers. Network virtualization allows microsegmentation and inter-datacenter security that was previously prohibitively expensive and complex. Additionally, critical and time-consuming tasks like reconfiguring networks in DR cutover scenarios can now be handled instantly and automatically.
Let’s make one thing clear from the start. The word “virtual” here does not mean that a vCISO is the equivalent of Siri. It means that the CISO works part-time.Some firms are not quite ready to make the leap. They may be loath to pay a fulltime salary and benefits. And they may only need someone once or twice a week. The vCISO can report to the office or (most likely under current conditions) work remotely.
I’ve always had this question about our IT infrastructure: what steps did we take to make sure that we can be able to work securely from virtually anywhere? Well, in today’s episode, Scott Anctil answers that question for us. Scott is our CTO at the Lockstep Technology Group.
