Intercloud Fabric: Simplifying the Hybrid Cloud

As IT organizations look to the cloud to become more efficient and achieve the agility their business demands, one of the biggest security challenges they typically face is right at the heart of any enterprise – the data center. In cloud environments, where applications have to be location-independent and mobile, it can be overwhelming to manage traffic that needs to go to specific security services when you have applications that are mobile, but physical security that’s not.
