content>In today’s digital world, business enterprises need cost effective ways to guarantee security of the exploding volume of data that is being filtered through the internal network systems. “Big data” is no longer just confined to the realm of technology, today it is a business priority, and “Big data” has the ability to affect commerce in the global economy. Protecting this data with Barracuda application deliver controller, ADC can ensure it isn’t exploited and disseminated into the hands of the wrong people.
