and other security professionals associated with embracing and
deploying a mobile security strategy that enables access across the
enterprise, sharing of corporate data or interaction with associates,
customers and other third parties via mobile devices
System vulnerabilities, ransomware, malware, intrusions, and other malicious activities are on the rise, showing that today’s cybersecurity professionals are hard-pressed to keep enterprises secure. Although threats are growing in sophistication and attack vectors are expanding, many of the intrusions and cyber attacks happening today are simply a result of improper protections being put in place, systems going unpatched, or weak security policies. While much of the blame is being placed on cybersecurity professionals, the real blame should often be placed upon the tools and policies that many of those professionals have come to trust and the complexity that comes with them.
Though IP telephony has been available commercially since the mid ‘90s, it remains an emerging technology for many organizations. Only about 28% of companies have moved all endpoints (handsets, softphones, audio bridges) to IP, according to Nemertes’ research data.

This report reviews the issues and benefits associated with moving to an all-IP environment, based on interviews with IT professionals who have moved to all IP or are in the process of doing so.

Not so many years ago, network closets, server rooms and data centers were designed from a “room to rack” standpoint. Deciding specifically where to store your technology typically came later in the design process. However, rapid technology refresh cycles, the need to rackmount more equipment and the desire for increased cooling capacities in an enclosed rack (known as an enclosure), have all begun to reverse that trend. Today, IT professionals are designing these critical workspaces with more of a “rack to room” methodology.
While network closets take on all shapes and sizes, they are essentially an arm of the data center and as an important component of all mission-critical environments, must be organized, protected, and managed efficiently and effectively. IT professionals are charged with keeping the technology infrastructure functioning, even in the face of constrained resources and increasing complexity.
