Luo Dongping, CEO and cofounder of Hillstone Networks, called for innovation in network security at the second World Internet Conference on Friday in Wuzhen, Zhejiang province.
Luo said, “Innovation and technological transformation are critical in tackling the network security issues that face us today. All-dimensional visualization is another critical element of future network security solutions. As more and more companies move their business to the cloud, cloud computing is becoming a compelling trend.”
The ‘Digital Silk Road’ is based on the Belt and Road Initiative. Network perimeters are diminishing, and along with the emergence of the Internet of Things, cloud computing and Big Data initiatives, network security is now facing unprecedented challenges.
Although threats originating in the cloud have severe consequences, they are usually hard to detect. Therefore, security within the cloud and protection over its perimeter are worth very close attention, Luo added.
The Second World Internet Conference, the most high-profile Internet-related event in China, is taking place in the picturesque water town of Wuzhen, Zhejiang province, Dec 16 to 18.
