The network technology industry is one of the fastest changing landscapes in the modern world. User expectation has skyrocketed over the years and ubiquitous access has surpassed being a “nice-to-have”. Holstering smartphones, tablets, and now wearable’s, network users worldwide demand reliable mobility. Security is a major challenge that organizations face with the explosion of mobile devices accessing the network. Capturing the massive amounts of data streaming across the network has become more difficult than ever, only to increase as technology advances.
