About this talk

Today's IT environments have become a security management nightmare. With the growing complexity of products, and common misconceptions of misguided marketing campaigns and misunderstandings of deployed technologies, organizations are faced with significant challenges to managing their security environments. Did you know that most security breaches today are fundamentally caused by relying on technologies to solve problems they weren’t designed to solve? The nature of the majority of attacks are opportunistic so improperly deployed access controls end up leaving organizations with a false sense of security and are vulnerable to attacks. In this webcast we will highlight: • How today’s market misunderstands the role of SSL, anti-virus and firewalls technologies • How to apply "defense in depth" when properly securing your infrastructure
