With the enterprise hurtling down the digital alley, it has become imperative for industry leaders to know what’s propelling digital transformation and the security challenges it poses.
Answering these questions at the IDG Security Day symposium was the senior director of Enterprise Sales and Solutions, at HP India, Leo Joseph.
With rapid urbanization, changing demographics, hyper-globalization, and accelerated innovation, the threat vectors accosting the workspace has increased exponentially.
“Digital isn’t a technology anymore, but more of a lifestyle. This has resulted in physical and digital realities getting fused, and growth and security to transition from a linear model to an exponential one.”

Joseph emphasized on the fact that 21st century enterprises are digital and data-driven, which has led to digital not being a technology anymore, but more of a lifestyle. This has resulted in physical and digital realities getting fused, and growth and security to transition from a linear model to an exponential one.
A key point Joseph brought forth in his talk was that embracing digitization was no longer an option. And he couldn’t be more right.
Among the changing trends brought about in the wake of digital transformation, Joseph highlighted how millennial design and faster time to productivity resulted in employees becoming more productive. Also, the culture of the remote workforce has given employees the much-needed flexibility and bandwidth.
Joseph touched upon a very important question that most top guns in the enterprise today are faced with: is your IT infrastructure covered by enhanced security solutions in the digital transformation era?
He said that the office of the future is not only an inspiring, exciting and creative working environment, but it also needs to be protected from security risks to give the modern employees (both end users and IT administrators) the peace of mind to concentrate on the business.
