In case you are not aware, the Internet is not a safe and happy place. Have you thought about all the other branch offices and partners you are connected too? Bad things are going on and you would like to do what you can to keep them out in the wild. In today's session, we look at some of those risks, and also discuss some technologies you should be considering when looking at securing the perimeter. You know about Intrusion Protection Systems (IPS), Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), and firewalls, but are they doing any good? Is the DMZ as we know it today…dead?
