FinTech is booming. Last year it received a staggering $14.5 billion in venture funding – more than double the 2014 figure. And the UK is Europe’s unofficial capital. That’s good news all round. But that also puts this rapidly growing sector very clearly in the crosshairs of formidable assailants. As these firms race to offer a wider range of agile, cloud-based services to a whole new set of customers they begin to present an even greater target for the aforementioned assailants.Therefore, today’s challenge is to find the right security strategy to minimise the damage that can occur from breaches, and give IT teams the tools they need to detect, prioritise and remediate as quickly as possible.

Top Networking Tech Trends 1. 5G and WI-FI 6 Undoubtedly, the deployment of next-generation wireless networking will be around the corner. In the arena of mobile devices, 5G is set to rewrite the new technological possibilities. It will uncover the true power of augmented reality and IoT. On the other hand, the next journey of the WI-FI Standard - WI-FI 6 or 802.11ax will become the step for a non-stop innovative world. It will add density, flexibility, scalability, and efficiency for increasing the internet speed of multiple connected devices. That will in return improve the working capabilities of businesses. 2. SD-WAN As the name suggested, SD-WAN is the software-defined approach for managing WANs. It can lower operating costs while amplifying the usage of resources in multiple deployments. It increases the security level for applications and enables admin to use bandwidth efficiently. It will become the standard format for wide area networks and will help in connecting public cloud resources and branch offices. 3. Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) SASE is a new networking technology that converges functions of different security and network solutions into one global cloud service. It is an architectural alteration of networking and security that supports IT to offer prompt, holistic, and versatile service to the digital business. It amplifies the security postures, improves access performance, and diminishes operational complexity. It helps organizations to develop new products faster and respond to business needs or changes. 4. IoT/Edge Networking In comparison to traditional cloud computing, edge computing is the idea to bring data and computers much closer to the end-users. It reduces the need for long-distance communication among client and server, and lessen the cost of bandwidth. It will remain to achieve drift in companies while they decentralize their networks. 5. Automation in Networking Network automation is the process that automates security and network to maximize the functionality and efficiency of the network. It will help IT companies to deploy applications faster. It is set to take the digital transformation to the next step by automation of network and security operations. It reduces the risk of downtime and failure of the network while making the management faster, simpler, and easier. Connecting to Future Networking Based on the trends that will reshape the networking world, we are going to see a significant change in the tech landscape. 2021 will be transformative for every person around the world. Several long-held concepts and infrastructure will be replaced by new ones making the network a vital asset to the business.
