Charles L. McGann, manager, Secure Infrastructure Services, United States Postal Service, presented
So you think your network is under a lot of pressure? Every month the United States Postal Service gets 316 million unauthorized network attempts made against its assets. What's more, it secures more than 500,000 IP addresses, 12,000 servers, 150,000 desktops and 225,000 users spread throughout 34,000 interconnected offices. How do they pull it off and remain so secure?
In this presentation, Charles McGann, the postal service's manager of secure infrastructure, discusses the intrusion prevention solution that his team implemented this year across 150,000 desktops.
