Juniper Networks’ Trusted Mobility Index UK Breakfast Meeting – Mobile Security

by Trusted Contributor ‎05-09-2012 09:54 AM - edited ‎05-11-2012 07:09 AM

So today saw the launch of Juniper Networks’ Trusted Mobility Index research and findings. We held an exclusive breakfast meeting with selected journalists to hear the findings of this research in London this morning.


Penny Still introduced the session and set the scene and agenda. She highlighted that the research combined theories and best practices about Trusted Mobility and gave a short summary on how the research was conducted with over 4,000 respondents interviewed in US, UK, Germany, Japan and China.


Today’s speakers at the event included;


• Nushin Hernandez, Analyst, IT Security Analysis and Mobile Security Analysis Services, Canalys
• Paul Gainham, Senior Director, Marketing, EMEA, Juniper Networks
• John Smith, ICT Network Manager, Settle College
• Oliver Crofton, Ethical Hacker, Vigilante Bespoke


With almost with the same regularity as I drink tea, I can’t seem to get through a business day at the moment without discussing either SDN or Openflow.  Whether that’s an internal discussion, meetings with partners, customers or press / analysts this is a topic that is clearly gathering momentum.


Before going on, I should declare my position and interest.  From what I have seen so far, what the proponents of SDN are evangelising has an appeal – often networks today are too complex and rigid and have fallen behind the apps / virtualisation world in terms of their agility.  In an increasingly on-demand cloud centric environment, clearly that is something that has to be fixed. 


The early proponents of SDN are articulating an approach that creates a new virtual control plane layer outside of the current networking equipment layer.  That virtual control plane is being positioned as more flexible, dynamic and agile than what currently exists.


There is a mildly humorous saying amongst the acting fraternity that you should never work with children or animals, the inference being that they are likely to do unpredictable things at the most inappropriate times.  In marketing that saying translates to never ask end users opinions on anything because they either tell you things you don’t want to hear or come back with comments you were not expecting.

Not strictly true of course and said a little tongue in cheek but as we looked through the results of the Juniper Networks Trusted Mobility Index report, there were some real surprises.
