Security Considerations When Undergoing a Network Refresh

Corporate networks are under a constant state of siege - not just from threats but from the pressure of supporting the ever-growing number of clients, devices and platforms that have resulted from the BYOD phenomena. Network demands will only increase as we move to the "internet of things" adding sensors and instrumentation of all types to the list of security burdens.

As a result, many organizations are planning network refreshes to ensure bandwidth for current and future needs will be available. But new networking protocols and hardware can bring new attacksurfaces for both internal and external threats, and organizations must consider new security measures, from intrusion prevention systems to next-generation firewalls to ensure network upgrades don't leave them at higher risk.

This SlashGuide looks at the most important factors IT should keep top of mind as they plan their move to 802.11ac, higher bandwidth wired infrastructure or upgrading to switches and routers with enhanced capabilities.

  • Security Considerations When Undergoing a Network Refresh

    New technologies such as mobile devices, software-defined networks, and even 802.11ac are redefining network security needs. As the boundaries of computing activity and networking expand, the management complexity is increasing, making effective security more important, but more difficult. This informative paper discusses crucial considerations you need to keep in mind when undergoing a network refresh, outlining the impact that emerging technologies will have on network and security management, along with what you can do to ensure that your network is high-performance and secure.

  • Managed Security Services: When It's Time to Stop Going "It" Alone

    In a comparision of the annual cost of traditional security  implementations with that of managed security service providers, researchers at Aberdeen showed the annual cost advantage for managed security services to be as high as 50% per year.

    Even if an organization is capable of the traditional, DIY integration of on-promise security solutions using in-house resources, is it truly any better than leveraging the expertise, scale and scope of a third-party service provider?

    This white paper takes an in-depth look at a security service solution that was able to make these benefits a reality:

    • Cost advantages
    • Strategic outlook
    • Leveraging overwhelming volumes of data
    • And more
