The Yin and Yang Relationship of Networking and Security

Presented by

Patrick Grillo, Senior Director, Security Solutions, Fortinet

About this talk

When something is so fundamentally part of something else, it’s difficult to imagine them not being mentioned in the same breath. All too often however, networking and security are not. Whether for historical or organisational reasons, security is typically layered on top of the network with little to no integration between them. While you can say that there is security in the network the open question is “How Effective is it”. This session will focus on an architectural approach where the network and security are fully integrated rather than layered, eliminating weak links in the security chain and provide consistent end to end protection and visibility.
