Architecting For Security Resilience
Continuous investment is what drives today’s network security. Threats evolve rapidly so enterprises must add, maintain, and upgrade their frontline security multiple times per year. What was once a firewall now also includes a next-gen firewall, web-application firewall (WAF), intrusion detection and prevention system, forensics tools and more. You purchase security tools to protect your network, but what have you done to protect your tools? Vendors recommend that enterprises place security tools inline of the traffic flow to inspect live traffic. This paper provides best-practice guidelines on how to deploy the most resilient inline security framework. The result will reduce network downtime, enable upgrading tools with zero network impact, and extend the useful life of your security investments.
