"Digital transformation" is a hot topic in enterprise IT these days, but it's a phrase that carries questions as well as answers. For example, what does digital transformation mean for those charged with the security of the network and application infrastructure? Everyone needs answers, and to get those answers we're turning to Kevin Walker, chief technology and strategy officer for Juniper Networks' engineering organization.
