Yesterday morning Enrique Salem, Symantec’s president and CEO, challenged IT professionals to rethink their approach for securing and managing information and identities. Kicking off Symantec’s Vision 2011 Conference, Salem talked about the explosive growth in information and other trends that are driving this shift in IT. First, information today is everywhere and last year alone grew 62 percent to 800,000 petabytes Information no longer resides behind the walls of a data center. Instead, it is stored and accessed from a variety of mobile devices and the cloud. Protecting, storing and managing all of this information is a challenge so IT needs to determine which information is most relevant. At the same time, today’s attacks are more targeted and toxic and attackers are focused on stealing information from individuals and businesses. Virtualization and the cloud provide a tremendous opportunities and need to think about how to ensure those environments are as secure as physical environments.  Symantec understands the tension between end users wanting privacy while IT wants control. We have the solutions and services to help IT be scalable, agile and secure. Watch the replay of Enrique’s keynote to learn more about Symantec’s strategy and how the company’s information-centric approach can help IT meet its business goals.
