Every year, record levels of money are spent on new IT security technology - yet major breaches and compromises are more prevalent than ever. The concept of "layered security" - in which an organization supports a wide variety of security technologies in order to discourage attackers - doesn't seem to be working. It's time to rethink IT security - not just the technology, but the way it's approached from a strategic, architectural perspective.
There are ways to build a comprehensive set of defenses - a security architecture - that can not only discourage attackers, but actually prevent data breaches. This white paper looks at 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 it enables unique and specific security scenarios, and how it supports a prevention-oriented approach.
