Security is like a box of chocolates…or a stack of swiss cheese, a fortified castle, a primary care physician, a medieval royal escort, a hotel, a chain, DNA, a car, or maybe a cheese grater (here)

The endpoint is the new perimeter. ‘Hard on the outside’ no longer works, especially when you have to open your networks up to ‘millennials,’ young workers who are accustomed to using their iPhones <which will introduce a mobile malware tipping point (here)> Today, corporate security looks like a cheese grater, with lots of holes.
