Physical and virtual environments, private and public clouds, and a growing array of IoT and endpoint devices are all dramatically expanding the potential attack surface. Protecting highly elastic network environments present cybersecurity leaders with a complex array of security challenges. In part, this Continue Reading

Adding Web Application Firewalls to your Security Strategy

The volume of application traffic passing through our networks continues to escalate. For example, just mobile traffic alone is expected to grow 39 times by 2021, to about 587 Exabytes. That equates to roughly 130 trillion images, or about 13 trillion YouTube clips. Which doesn’t really help. Numbers at that scale Continue Reading

How FortiSIEM Works to Keep Schools Safe

Networks used by educational institutions benefit from being open and promoting a limitless flow of information and ideas. However, much like the student-teacher relationship, the user-network relationship is one that must be built on trust. The extent of personal information and intellectual data that is often housed on these networks Continue Reading

Securing the Digital World, Part I

Today’s digital economy is driving a technology revolution. Networks now include on-demand infrastructure, cloud-based services, software defined perimeters, and the growth of smart devices and IoT. Networks and infrastructures are also increasingly hyperconnected. What’s been missing is a security strategy to protect these new environments. The Internet was first begun Continue Reading

The Role of the Healthcare CIO Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Today’s healthcare networks are intricate ecosystems of different networks comprised of a wide variety of connected devices and moving data, but they weren’t always this open.

Introducing Argo — A faster, more reliable, more secure Internet for everyone

The Internet is inherently unreliable, a collection of networks connected to each other with fiber optics, copper, microwaves and trust. It’s a magical thing, but things on the Internet break all the time; cables get cut, bogus routes get advertised, routers crash. Most of the time, these failures are noticed Continue Reading

Byline: The Move to Standardization and Open Architectures Enables Cybersecurity Automation For the Government Sector

As networks become increasingly complex, adding such things as wireless connectivity, cloud services, BYOD, and the Internet of Things, they present increasing opportunities for compromise. Most organizations have deployed a variety of security devices across their network as part of their overall security infrastructure, usually from different vendors. These devices Continue Reading

Managed Security Service Providers, Choosing the Right Security Vendor

Businesses struggling to secure their networks against determined cyber attackers are facing a perfect storm of challenges: most networks are in the midst of a dramatic transformation, including IoT, virtualization, and the cloud, the number and sophistication of network attacks is increasing, the cost of being breached continues to rise, Continue Reading
