This paper gives a high-level overview of key trends
shaping the data center and their impact on network
security. The paper is divided into the following topic
• Perimeter firewall
• Core network segmentation
• Cloud computing (infrastructure-as-a-service)
• Software-defined networking (SDN)
• Network Function Virtualization (NFV)
As enterprises build out data center, headquarter, and even branch office networks with ever-increasing Ethernet speeds,
security infrastructure needs to keep up. In the last 3 years, a long list of firewall manufacturers have rolled out products that
support between 40G and 1T of aggregate throughput, and they’re all investigating the need to support new technologies and new physical interfaces at higher performance levels.

Cyber security breaches are happening at an industrial scale. The unabated volume of cyber breaches along with the scale and magnitude of the breaches is forcing the entire industry to re-think how cyber security gets deployed, managed and addressed. At the heart of this change is a fundamental shift in the assumptions and the model under which cyber security has been operating.

NetFlow was introduced on Cisco routers as a way to monitor packets as they enter and exit networking device interfaces in
order to gain insight and resolve congestion. Typical information contained in a NetFlow record reveals traffic source and destination as well as protocol or application, time stamps, and number of packets. Although NetFlow was initially not on a standards track, it has now been superseded by the Internet Protocol Flow Information eXport (IPFIX), which is based on the NetFlow Version 9 implementation, and is on the IETF standards track with RFC 5101, RFC 5102.
The Digital Security and Surveillance eZine is about channel partners extending their expertise in Internet Protocol to a whole new arena. For these partners, security goes well beyond software, firewalls, VPNs and other security offerings commonly discussed in the industry. These partners are combining networks, storage, cameras and similar technologies into full solutions designed to help protect the customer.
Electronic medical records (EMR) represent a major opportunity for solution providers to support the necessary networks and systems healthcare providers need. EMR makes it possible for doctors, hospital, labs and others to exchange medical information seamlessly. EMR comes with security, compliance and privacy concerns, however, and solution providers can help healthcare organizations address these challenges. This Everything Channel Starter Pack shows how you can find the resources needed to enter and profit from this growing market for healthcare technology solutions. Read about how a partnership with Avnet can enable solution providers to deliver the services and technology to support EMR.
With the recent exhaustion of the IPv4 address space, many organizations are interested in learning more about the migration to IPv6. This document examines the major benefits of IPv6 and the rate of adoption of IPv6 around the world. It also provides an overview of some of the major challenges organizations face with IPv6, and how Fortinet supports IPv6 today.
The Need for Comprehensive Wireless LAN Security: WLANs face many threats that strong authentication and link encryption do not address. Because wireless is a shared medium, it is subject to malicious attacks such as de-authentication broadcasts, evil twin access point/Honeypot. Therefore you need to implement the same protection mechanisms that you deploy ubiquitously on your WAN gateway, on your wireless LAN as well.
New technologies used in Web 2.0 applications have increased the volume and complexity of network traffic internal to organizations and at Internet gateways. More than ever, it's important for businesses to deploy new methods of monitoring and controlling these Internet-based applications in order to discover and mitigate hidden security threats.
As many network administrators initiate their IPv6 migration projects, other IT professionals do not know where to begin. This white paper first describes the importance of securing the network against IPv6 threats well before the introduction of any IPv6 traffic. It then outlines the steps involved to begin securing a transitional IPv4/IPv6 network.
After almost two decades of popular adoption, organizations and users of the world-wide web are still being victimized by web-based threats. In spite of the billions of dollars invested in security, web-borne threats are still on the rise. They are more sophisticated and targeted, and with the rise of mobility in the workplace, even more difficult to control.
Since web-based attacks are frequently launched as a blend of several threat technologies, an effective security solution must provide a layered defence employing multiple security technologies.
With over 60,000 new malware threats created each day, antivirus software is an essential component to IT security. But antivirus is only the beginning. According to Forrester, a single tool is not sufficient to address a particular risk area completely. That's why Faronics implements a strategy featuring multiple layers of security for enterprisewide end-point computer protection. This video describes the many features and facets that come together to make Faronics the only end-point security software vendor to offer an integrated layered security solution.
An informed IT professional needs to ensure that the antivirus solution they choose strategically matches the goals of their company IT department. In this paper, Faronics describes the role of antivirus software - but specifically how it fits into bigger layered defense security architecture. The paper examines several elements of a comprehensive strategy to protect your network, and focuses on defending the end point-user workstations, such as PCs and laptops.
These days, most well-developed organizations use a collection of several technologies, methodologies and products to protect their networks and computers from a particular threat. While no single technology guarantees security, application whitelisting covers situations not addressed by firewalls or antivirus utilities. This paper focuses on how application whitelisting can effectively be used as an important layer in your security scenario. It examines other security layers as well, and demonstrates how whitelisting compliments and augments existing defenses

This paper discusses the new generation of web security offerings provided by service providers in the cloud, where protection is ap¬plied at the point where the threats are being seen-that is, directed at web-based applications. In taking the protection nearer to the threats, organizations can benefit from vastly improved internet security as the threats are stopped before they ever reach the network. This paper discusses the reality of web-based threats today, and discusses the drivers for cloud-based computing and the benefits that organizations will see from use of a dedicated service provider for handling functions that are necessary, but that are not a core compe¬tence of the organization
As networking continues to evolve and organizations look
to refresh their security architecture to embrace the latest
technologies, they must sift through competing vendor
claims about protection, performance and price. They
need a way to evaluate their options using real-world tests
to determine the best solution for their needs, which will
likely include high performance security, ultra low latency,
scalability and 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity.
If you deployed your security solution even just last year, you may not be protected from some of today’s most common malware. Today’s attacks are more frequent, more devious and more targeted, successfully penetrating many businesses that consider their security strategies to be more than adequate.
Is your business protected?
