It's hard to remember that the commercial firewall, as we know it today, has only been around since 1994. This was the first firewall that could monitor every layer of the OSI stack—a formidable obstacle to hackers.
With more and more network traffic moving towards the edge, as with cloud-based services and ever-expanding in-house app platforms, administrators must be prepared to introduce additional in-line devices to their security operations centers. Today, networks are shouldering far more traffic than the application firewall was first thought up.
These days, however, a firewall by itself is no longer a comprehensive network security solution. The increasing amount of traffic through the network edge means that multiple in-line security appliances must be used to augment your security.
Back in the 90's, administrators could just take down the whole network in order to perform maintenance or reconfiguration. That isn't feasible anymore. Network security professionals must be able to enhance their stacks without introducing downtime: a recent study from the Ponemon Institute found that firms lose nearly $9,000 per minute in the event of a data center outage.
In the big picture, let's get a better understanding of the four main challenges when deploying a bigger, better stack of in-line security appliances:
It is especially important that network professionals are mindful of these potential stumbling blocks, because the rise of remote access and cloud-based activity has made enterprise security's 'big picture' even bigger.
Garland Technology has you covered with the best solutions for in-line security appliance implementation: check out the whitepaper, Managing the Edge of the Network – A New Necessity for Security Architects, for more information on how to get the most out of your in-line security stack.
