Like an overweight patient with clogged arteries who refuses to exercise but then complains about a lack of energy, corporations are starting to wake up to the fact that the networks they depend on for business are too constricted to meet the demands of next-generation applications.
A lot of those demands come from Web-based applications that drive a ton of audio and video. In fact, to circumvent constricted corporate networks that typically have severe limits on the size of files that can be sent, it's not unusual to hear about corporate users opting to use insecure public FTP sites to send files to fellow employees, as well as to colleagues they are working with in other organizations.
That kind of behavior tends to make the typical risk compliance officer blanch.
