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.
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.
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
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.
Cybersecurity has become a leading topic both within and beyond the corporate boardroom. What enterprises need to stop the escalation of cyberattacks is a network security approach that is designed from the outset to enable the safe use of the applications and technologies required to support a thriving business.
Zero Trust is an alternative security model that addresses the shortcomings of failing perimeter-centric strategies by removing the assumption of trust. With Zero Trust there is no default trust for any entity—including users, devices, applications, and packets—regardless of what it is and its location on or relative to the corporate network. This paper discusses the need for a Zero Trust approach to network security, how the Palo Alto Networks® next-generation security platform delivers on these requirements, and provides guidance on how to progressively migrate to a Zero Trust architecture.

The amount of data being stored is more than doubling every two years. IT departments eager to shrink data center footprints and consolidate servers and storage are preparing for a new generation of data servers. But while virtualized and cloud storage environments are expecting dramatic future growth, we have yet to widespread adoption across the board. Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), a low cost alternative for expanding legacy SANs with minimum investment, lets customers combine Ethernet data and fibre channel data traffic into a single high-speed network. While only 9 percent of users surveyed by have already adopted FCoE , that number is expected to grow to 26 percent in the next two years. And while cloud storage is expected to skyrocket over the next decade, security concerns and application compatibility are still an issue. This Storage CRN eZine, a part of our Thought Leadership Series, will discuss the state of the virtualized storage market, the current challenges facing integrators and vendors, and the steps necessary to take to meet an expected deluge of Big Data that will need to be stored and managed down the road.
