Evaluating the Efficacy of NGFW Techniques in the Cloud

Presented by

Sunil Ravi, Chief Security Architect

About this talk

NGFW is dead. Or is it? As organizations leverage more data and workloads in the cloud, the security perimeter that traditional NGFW vendors protected seems to be a relic of the past. Given that COVID has made it normal for users to work-from-anywhere, enterprises looking to protect their critical assets need to extend advanced NGFW protection mechanisms to their cloud infrastructure, which comes with its own limitations and complexities. Join Sunil Ravi, Chief Security Architect with Versa Networks, as he examines how traditional NGFW techniques like sandboxing, deep packet inspection, network segmentation, and web caching can be extended to the cloud to protect against modern attacks. Sunil will evaluate the limitations that organizations have with NGFWaaS (Next-Generation Firewall as a Service) and what you can do to overcome limitations to bolster your security posture. In this webinar you will learn: -- Traditional NGFW approaches to block threats and protect your perimeter -- Limitations of NGFW and NGFWaaS when it comes to protecting cloud data and workloads -- A new approach to extend robust NGFW techniques to protect data in the cloud
