How Application Intelligence and Control enables network security in the wake of Web 2.0, Cloud Computing and Mobility
This paper explores how innovations such as mobility, Web 2.0, social media and cloud computing have dramatically changed the IT landscape and introduced new security threats into corporate and government networks. Now traditional firewalls are coming up short as protocol and port number classifications have been rendered ineffective in blocking threats. In a bold move to reclaim control, CIOs and IT managers are looking to next-generation firewalls with application-layer intelligence that stands strong against today’s threats. It’s that kind of fortified protection that will enable organizations to fully embrace and leverage such innovations going forward.
