While developers will get new APIs and development frameworks there was no real discussion of how these new iOS applications will be transformative from a content standpoint.
Security analytics growth will drive growth in PCAP appliances, analytics distribution networks, SDN, and middleware.
We know the benefits that cloud storage can offer organizations - flexibility, agility, and elasticity more efficiently at lower costs. And that’s really just the start. Once you factor in the potential to address business continuity and productivity concerns with instant backup, archive, and disaster recovery plans, it’s turning into a no brainer.
A plethora of intelligence feeds are driving new products, services, and enterprise threat intelligence strategy.
