Security is a substantial concern for the financial sector, largely because of the takeover of digitalization. An abundance of information has been made available digitally, which is more convenient for consumers, but more threatening for financial institutions.
At the same time, workloads are becoming mobile and cloud-oriented, so the environment perimeter is expanding into outside data centers.
