Servers, servers, everywhere: How the hybrid cloud changes the game for security
While organizations struggle to adopt the latest technologies to power business success, servers remain the workhorse of the enterprise even with major shifts from physical, to virtual, to cloud.

This paper examines the dynamics of the hybrid cloud and the challenges introduced at both the business and technical levels.
