Protect Against Bleeding Data At Your Network Edge

The edge of your network is where the battle over your network security takes place. These functions are far more intelligent than that which occurs within your network core. 

Examples of the type of action occurring at your network edge include:
  • Web applications on virtual platforms
  • Next-generation filtering
  • Network monitoring
  • Data breaches
  • Intrusion detection and prevention

But, with so many in-line appliances and tools operating on the edge, you run the risk of oversubscription. Should this happen, the protection system you’ve built no longer provides its intended benefit – and this is where your data could bleed and become compromised.

As a Network World article puts it, “Many of the tools and configurations [involve] a performance tradeoff, and some can introduce security vulnerabilities. Even the ones that are supposed to be securing your network.”

For example, if you leverage intricate content filtering and packet parameters, the complexity often significantly slows your throughput.

Protect Your Network Core And Data

Implementing the correct edge devices on your network is more crucial than on any other layer. An edge connector is a type of device that is instrumental in protecting your information.

Edge connectors access and direct network traffic from multiple network layers to your many in-line and passive appliances. To ensure that these tools are able to properly keep your network secure, an edge connector filters and load-balances to free up room for each individual application to do its job. Because this device’s fundamental purpose is to prevent oversubscription (and network downtime), it ensures that your network is always under the supervision of the security tools you’ve invested in.

Garland Technology recently created a SlideShare presentation that details the network edge and its devices, including the EdgeLens. Watch it now to help further your understanding of this critical network layer and protect your data. Also, use it to help educate your colleagues on this important piece of your network's infrastructure and protection.
