Are you ready to launch IPv6 securely?

Davey Winder says that despite the unnecessary scare stories, businesses need to think about migrating to IPv6 securely now.

I'm not suggesting that the time is now for everyone to start their migration from IPv4, but what I am saying is that the time is certainly long overdue for everyone to be investigating how that migration can be made in a timely and secure fashion. For too long people have been happy to have their heads buried neck deep, ignoring the arrival of IPv6, courtesy of the 'lack of security' comfort zone.

Although the IP address sky has yet to fall, despite media Chicken Little claims that it has been doing just that for ten years or more, the fact is addresses are running out and at some point the move to IPv6 will be necessary.
