DISCLAIMER: this article is older than one year and may not be up to date with recent events or newly available information.

Smart cities are emerging today, with driverless public transport, contactless payments, virtual personal assistants, smart rubbish collection and smart parking being trialed or used across the globe. Soon these will be joined by driverless cars, IoT-enabled homes that can detect when there is a need for repairs, and AI-enabled traffic control.

All of these exciting technologies are imperative: more enterprise-ready clouds, more user-friendly devices and more innovative applications than ever before. But these new innovations, which are welcomed by enterprises and smart cities alike, also demand consumer trust and total confidence in security. And the more enterprises take up these new propositions, the more they’re seemingly at risk. All at a time when protecting data and systems is more critical than ever before.

These new innovations remain necessary for businesses and cities to succeed. So, to move forward, companies must consider innovation and security in tandem. IT needs solutions that can secure the interactions between users, applications and data in more dynamic, complex and extended places than ever before.

That means reinventing the approach to security – moving from a time-consuming, near-hopeless search for every single possible threat, to understanding exactly what a workload is supposed to do – and acting immediately when there’s any deviation from this. For innovation to continue, businesses must take this approach from their core, as an intrinsic part of the running of the infrastructure.

See below for what our days can look like if businesses enable innovation to thrive – and how intrinsic security is to it all, if we redefine the approach we take.
