Data is the lifeblood of your digital business

By unlocking your organisation’s data, you can fundamentally change the way it operates, and steer the transformative journey your stakeholders expect. But in this world of cyberattacks, securing your data centre – and the data it houses – shouldn’t be the last aspect you look at when you’ve already built your infrastructure; it should be your starting point.

Our on-demand webinar, Securing the Data Centre in a Digital World, will give you insight into how to secure your data centre in this new world.

The panel of experts presenting this webinar include an IDC analyst joined by Dimension Data and Cisco data centre and security experts. Here are some of the highlights:

  • The analyst. Find out why digital transformation is today’s business imperative from Richard Villars, VP of Datacenter and Cloud at IDC.


According to the IDC, in 2010, companies were 9-10 times as likely to buy infrastructure to deploy on-premise as they were to consume cloud or hosted models. In 2016, over 50% are looking to managed cloud offerings. By 2018, these same companies will be looking to use both.

The days of the traditional data centre, with data and applications controlled behind a firewall, are gone in the digital world.


  • The technology provider. How do you improve your data centre security posture in the digital world? Scott Harrell, VP Product Management for the Security Business Group at Cisco talks about getting deeper visibility into your network and data centre – and how to identify and investigate breaches.
