Access "Next-generation firewalls play by new rules"

Issue Overview

Information Security magazine - September 2013 Volume 15 / No. 7

Firewalls started their journey to the next generation at about the same time as the Star Trek TV series. While the products have advanced with fine-tuned application awareness and better controls, many IT managers are still stuck with the original firewalls that handle ports and protocols. The September cover story looks at the key developments that define the next-generation of these products from application awareness to domain-reputation-management, intrusion prevention techniques, and protecting virtual machines. IT security managers who have recently migrated to next-generation firewalls explain what platforms they are buying and why. We also cover innovative ways to bridge the security skills gap in a tight market, and global risk assessment beyond regulations, as analysts predict investments in security will finally lead spending in years to come.  Access >>>
