As businesses try to digitally transform themselves, security is one of the key aspects that will need to be considered. A legacy IT environment is bound to have many vulnerabilities because of the need to constantly patch and update outdated software, issues with integration and difficulties in effectively managing an entire IT infrastructure from a security perspective.
