Flexible Products Deliver Superior Protection and Customer Value


Executive Summary

•Demand for effective and efficient network security solutions only continues to grow as data security breaches increase in frequency and impact, and as regulatory requirements continue to change.
•The network firewall has emerged as the cornerstone of an IT organization's information security infrastructure but is also undergoing a period of rapid and forced evolution in recent years.
•In particular, the effectiveness of stateful firewalls has been challenged in the modern cyber threat climate.
•With stateful firewalls (also called legacy firewalls when referring to stateful-only firewalls, lacking next generation functionality) no longer being the end-all in perimeter defense, demand for the "next generation" of network firewalls is gaining market momentum.
•The initial attempt at improving firewall functionality, called Unified Threat Management (UTM), sought to improve security by integrating multiple security technologies into a single network appliance.
•Unfortunately, the consolidation of several security tools into a single network device introduced performance degradation that makes the UTM solution less feasible for use in environments requiring consistent and high network throughput along with complex or numerous security policies and rules.
•More recently, vendors have developed Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) products designed to address a major weakness in the inspection process of stateful firewalls.
•As many of the modern cyber threats are designed to piggyback on legitimate application-layer network traffic, their malicious payloads bypass stateful firewall inspection mechanisms. NGFW's overcome this blind spot by identifying and controlling application traffic.
•The commonly accepted definition of NGFW also includes the integration of Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) capabilities. However, network firewalls have historically been considered devices that enforce "entry-and-exit" policies.
•As a result, the integration of IPS for threat inspection raises questions about the future role of the single function network firewall.
•This consideration, along with other factors such as performance impact and cost, have an impact on the way that firewalls are sold, where in the network topology they are deployed, who they are sold to, and customer expectations.
•This new and expanded definition of a network firewall has introduced a level of uncertainty for firewall vendors and customers alike.


CEO's Perspective

This is an important strategic market for security vendors and network infrastructure manufacturers. Customers prefer to purchase security and IT solutions from a single provider whenever possible.
Businesses are continually challenged to do more with less. Firewalls must be intuitive to deploy and manage in order for businesses to reap the most value from their firewall investment.
Firewall requirements will vary widely in terms of performance, cost, and features depending on the size of the organization, placement within the network, and risk management objectives.
Security threats and enterprise technologies only continue to change; firewall vendors must provide a high degree of flexibility in their products to allow for changing security requirements and regulations.

Any startup has to have a clear go –to-market strategy from the beginning. Similarly, any data science project has to have a go to production strategy from its first days, so it could go beyond proof-of-concept. Machine learning and artificial intelligence in production would result in hundreds of training pipelines and machine learning models that are continuously revised by teams of data scientists and seamlessly connected with web applications for tenants and users.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
IT organizations are moving to the cloud in hopes to approve efficiency, increase agility and save money.

The goal of Continuous Testing is to shift testing left to find defects earlier and release software faster. This can be achieved by integrating a set of open source functional and performance testing tools in the early stages of your software delivery lifecycle. There is one process that binds all application delivery stages together into one well-orchestrated machine: Continuous Testing. Continuous Testing is the conveyer belt between the Software Factory and production stages. Artifacts are m...

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Cliff Beek, President of Cloud Constellation Corporation, d...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Kelly Looney, director of DevOps consulting for Skytap, showed how an incremental approach to introducing containers into complex, distributed applications results in modernization with less risk and more reward. He also shared the story of how Skytap used Docker to get out of the business of managing infrastructure, and into the business of delivering innovation and business value. Attendees learned how up-front planning allows for a clean sep...
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
