A new white paper jumps into the challenges of network edge management and defenses against increased, ever-changing cyber threats. Get up to speed on utilizing in-line security appliances to securely manage the network edge to prevent downtime.
At today’s rapid rate of technology and security development, businesses expect their networks to run efficiently and flawlessly – with 100 percent network uptime. It’s difficult to ensure complete cybersecurity protection while also delivering uninterrupted functionality.
Unplanned data center outages cost an average of nearly $9,000 per minute, according to recent research from Ponemon Institute. Every minute a company experiences business disruption, they lose productivity and revenue. Long past are the days where network security engineers could take down the entire network to troubleshoot or implement improvements.
Beyond the basic capabilities of firewalls, cybersecurity professionals now use myriad in-line security appliances. Although valuable and necessary, these in-line security appliances aren’t without risk or difficulty – they can quickly become points of failure in the network or require too many ports.
How do security architects find an effective way to deploy in-line security appliances and manage the network edge – both locally and remotely?
Available in the Fuel Resource Center, Managing the Edge of the Network: A New Necessity for Security Architects is a new white paper contributed by Garland Technology that delves into the challenges of network edge management and combatting increased malicious cyberattacks.
- In-line security appliance challenges.
- Chaining and network packet broker (NPB) implementation.
- In-line security appliance tapping scenarios and solutions.
- Meeting advanced edge management needs.
