Have you noticed the word “Jedi” frequently pops up in news headlines lately? Star Wars fans around the world impatiently wonder how the famous conflict between the Jedi and the Sith will conclude when “Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker” hits theaters in December. In a battle closer to Earth, Microsoft triumphed over Amazon to win the 10-year, $10B JEDI contract from the United States Department of Defense (DoD). Amazon challenged the Pentagon’s JEDI decision faster than the Millennium Falcon’s alleged twelve parsecs timeframe makes the Kessel Run. Agree too many Star Wars references, do you? Hmmm?

Microservices: What Are They and How Do They Impact Network Visibility and Security in the Cloud?

After decades of consistent investment in perimeter cybersecurity tools, cloud-based architectures have pushed IT leaders to reevaluate their strategies. There is still a place for perimeter defenses like firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and intrusion prevention systems. But adapting to cloud environments and mobility means creating a defense-in-depth strategy that goes beyond the network perimeter. However, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to defense-in-depth cybersecurity. What worked in the earliest days of public cloud adoption won’t exactly fit with the latest trend in cloud-native architecture—microservices today. As important as it may be to embrace cloud-native architecture to support digital business initiatives, you should not dive in without taking these steps to solve security and visibility challenges.

on 9/26/19 8:00 AM By | John Rampart | 0 Comments | Network Security Cloud Solutions
As a result of the widespread adoption of public and private cloud, companies must rethink their network security strategies. While it’s tempting to think that you can just leave cloud security to your cloud provider, it’s too important not to play an active role in securing your resources in the cloud.  Think of it like this, would you leave your on-prem network security up to the company that physically built your infrastructure? No, you invest in dedicated security tools like NGFWs, IPS, WAFs, and more to secure, detect, and protect your network from intrusion. A similar strategy must be replicated in the cloud.

What is Driving the Need for Additional Network Monitoring?

Enterprise networks are evolving. They face different challenges today than just two or three years ago. Today’s IT teams must find a way to deal with more data, more connected devices, networks distributed over a greater geographic area, and a greater risk of phishing or DDoS attacks, while ensuring that they provide their users with a fast, and reliable service. In order to meet their organization’s business level goals, they must stay at the forefront of technology, adopting trends as they become market ready. As a result, enterprises are increasing the scope of their network monitoring initiatives, largely driven by:
