Firewalling and network segmentation used to work as protective layers around the data center. No longer. Perimeter security still represents the focus of most enterprise security budgets despite an infrastructure and operational model that is distributed across private and public clouds. Moreover, attacks cause maximum damage after getting past perimeter defenses making these security technologies insufficient.

This webcast will look at the state of data security across the range of infrastructures that characterize the modern enterprise from traditional data centers to private and public cloud infrastructures. It will explore such questions as:

  • What technologies are in use to secure data centers today?
  • How are organizations securing their cloud deployments?
  • How successful are those approaches?
  • What are the biggest challenges?
