More vital organization data is living outside of a traditional data center in modern organizations, but why haven’t our security practices changed?
The problem starts with the perimeter-heavy, fortify-the-exterior approach. When it fails to stop cybercrime, it can cost upwards of $100M. By focusing on the application, data, and user as the important security layers organizations can both prevent and mitigate attacks.
Application layer network security can improve network performance, security and add control over applications. Software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) have all but eliminated the cost and complexity of adding security at every level.
Organizations can best control all data and network traffic by using secure, encrypted switches at every layer within a network. Monitored access, encryption, and application-specific firewall rules can all but eliminate malicious “east/west” movement inside a network.
Learn how upcoming security compliance regulations – like NIST, PCI, and the EU banking standards – are focusing in on security requirements at all layers. 2016 will be a game-changing year for application security.
- Traditional perimeter security has failed us - here's how.
- SDN and NFV change how we connect and secure data.
- How upcoming regulations will examine security at every layer.
