Networks are evolving rapidly. The transformation to a digital business model has extended the network beyond the perimeter, which means that today’s networks and their related security are becoming borderless. IoT and cloud solutions require organizations to worry about an attack surface that may not even be visible to IT. Worse, many IoT devices are headless, run simple communications protocols, and are unable to run a client or even be patched. Instead, they rely exclusively on the access layer for security. In addition, critical and... [Read More]

Securing networks has been a serious challenge ever since DEC salesman Gary Thuerk sent the first spam message to 400 unsuspecting users of the ARPANET back in 1978. Sure, security devices have become more sophisticated over time, and their evolution is a fascinating subject. But they all tend to suffer from a common problem: because they are a siloed technology, they can only solve the problem sitting right in front of them. This is one of the reasons why, in spite of the millions being spent on security by today’s organizations, the incidents... [Read More]

These tools allowed us to trust people as business partners.  This has all changed. Financial Services is moving to... [Read More]

Security vendors have been touting the advantages of next-generation firewalls (NGFW) that provide application inspection for several years now. As application traffic became more prevalent, criminals found that hiding malware inside application traffic was an excellent way to bypass traditional security. They still do. But now, application traffic is ubiquitous. The number of devices on our networks is growing exponentially, along with the volume of application and transactional traffic. While much of it is still passing through the traditional... [Read More]

One of the biggest security challenges organizations face is being able to see enough of the network to identify today’s most advanced, multi-vector threats. Ideally, you need to be able to see across the distributed network, including cloud deployments and devices from multiple network and security vendors, correlate detected local activity with global threat intelligence and expected behaviors, and coordinate a response across the entire portfolio of installed security solutions.
