Network. An enterprise network, especially one this large, is impossible to completely secure unless it's not tied to the internet at all. Even then, employees have access to it. There will always be an exploit as it's man-made, it's not perfect.
Do you know what you're talking about, or did you get this little conception from some 90's hacker movie where "hacking" could be defined by mashing random keys while giving a zombie like stare to a screen scrolling binary, like some kind of half baked retard?
There isn't always a way. The fact is that alot of companies cheap out on this because there always seems to be better ways to spend their money, and it looks like Sony was one of them.
When you're in a neighborhood where everyone hates you, are you going to lock your front door and call it good? I mean, who really breaks through windows or goes through back doors these days anyway?
It's Sony's fault, and no, it's not as simple as "there's always a way to hack in."
There are only as many ways as they've allowed.
