Mainframe computers, personal computers, client/server systems, the Internet, mobile computing, cloud, multicloud, Internet of things (IoT): Information technology never stops evolving.

Also evolving are our beliefs about trust and security and how we implement them to keep our connected world safe and secure. When PCs began selling worldwide in the early 1980s, security was not considered a fundamental component in any system that wasn’t for military, government or scientific use. With the coming of the Internet in the early ’90s, however, all of that changed very quickly; connected systems for businesses and consumers suddenly offered ample opportunities for bad actors to defraud others. We now know there are plenty of bad guys doing this. Now in 2016, we must constantly bolster and upgrade the security on our devices and systems to steer clear of those criminals.
In this eWEEK slide show, Jim Reno, chief architect for security at Apcera, discusses how security in the enterprise has changed as new technologies and movements have been introduced, and what we can expect to see in the future.
