Today’s cyber attackers have become ever more sophisticated, using targeted, persistent, stealthy and multi-phased attacks to avoid detection at network perimeters through traditional security measures. These advanced threats frequently change and mutate, eventually, becoming the so-called zero-day attacks. Ransomware is the most typical advanced threat now, combining new malware variants and new attack tactics to make it an increasing threat to all organizations. It also makes conventional techniques ineffective.
Four Network Security Initiatives
Advanced Threat Prevention
Micro-Segmentation for Virtualized Data Centers
As datacenters have evolved from physical to virtual, enterprise to cloud, the security challenges they face have also evolved. The cloud-enabled data center needs a new security strategy and solution that can cope with virtual demands with minimal performance impact. Micro-Segmentation is critical in ensuring security in the cloud. It addresses the gaps in visibility and control of traffic at the virtual machine level.
Security for Network Function Virtualization (NFV)
Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is designed to consolidate and deliver the networking components needed to support a fully virtualized infrastructure — including virtual servers, storage, and other functions such as the firewall, which are also known as Virtualized Network Function (VNF) modules. This NFV/VNF deployment is typically complex and requires automatic orchestration support.
Security as a Service for MSSPs
Security management is always a headache for customers, regardless of whether it’s a large enterprise or small business. On the one hand, customers need a more smart and flexible centralized management solution to maximize operational efficiency. On the other hand, Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) have evolved to help customers with security management and operations.
