‘Complexity’ will halt network upgrades in 2017

November 29th, 2016

Tricky network upgrades are causing many enterprises to throw up their hands and simply not do any upgrading at all, according to Cato Networks.

Nearly half of the organizations the company recently surveyed (40 percent) say they have “no plans to upgrade their network” at all in 2017. If that’s true, security will likely suffer.

They aren’t upgrading because of the excessive cost related to the complexity of hybrid security and network connectivity. It’s a case of freezing like a deer in the headlights because the work is overwhelming.
