Regaining Control over the Application-Centric Network
Patrick Sweeney from SonicWALL and Rafal Los from HP
About this talk
Welcome to this ISACA event, sponsored by SonicWALL. The speakers for this live webcast will be discussing how network and application usage is dramatically changing the way networks are designed, managed and protected. Bandwidth is increasing and users are becoming more technically savvy as they strive for greater productivity. At the same time, the growth of insecure Web 2.0, Software as a Service (SaaS), Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), social networking, Peer-to-Peer (P2P) applications and streaming media has increased the need for greater traffic inspection. Firewall-evasive techniques, convergent online information and port-hopping have added new opportunities for the spread of malicious content and code.
Traditional approaches to network infrastructure are failing to meet the combined demand for unrestricted throughput, deep security and granular control. In most cases, the need for throughput has won out, and security, control and employee productivity have been compromised.
Join this web seminar to learn:
-The mounting security implications of an application-centric network
-How to manage application diversity and bandwidth growth.
-Best practices in regaining control over network traffic
-How to regain control without compromising network performance.
