They say virtualization, complex mobile systems, and cloud computing are causing network disruptions that prevent agencies from carrying out their missions. The network managers believe they can cut the complexity of their agency's network in half, which they say could reduce their agency's IT spending by 20 percent.

Experts say that one way to eliminate cybersecurity vulnerabilities is to build cyber defenses into the wide range of information technology devices that are rapidly becoming part of the "Internet of things".
