Every year, enterprises spend record levels of money on new IT security technology yet major breaches and compromises are more prevalent than ever. The concept of layered security in which enterprises support a wide variety of security technologies in order to discourage attackers doesnt seem to be working.

Its time to rethink IT security not just the technology, but the way enterprises approach it from a strategic, architectural perspective. There are ways for organizations to build a comprehensive set of defenses a security architecture that can not only discourage attackers, but actually prevent them from penetrating your IT environment.

In this webcast, you will learn some of the basics of building a next-generation IT security architecture, including:

  • How the foundational architecture of a next-gen firewall and security platform matters in enabling the business, and protecting it against a wide variety of attacks.
  • How the architecture enables unique and specific security scenarios.
  • How the architecture supports a prevention-oriented approach.
