As the digital threat landscape expands and poses new security threats, organizations are turning to digital innovation to meet their rapidly changing security needs. Many organizations are adopting multiple digital innovations, including 5G. However, with the incorporation of new devices into their networks, they are also introducing more edges and expanding the attack surface, posing new cybersecurity risks for their organizations.
The integration of 5G is just one example of the challenges digital innovation can pose if organizations don’t have a comprehensive security platform to cover all their bases. Advancements in 5G will fundamentally alter network performance requirements at the edge for devices and applications, as well as require appropriate security infrastructure to monitor and manage the new levels of performance. Network demand will also increase considerably and increased network complexity will eventually lead to evolving security needs.
