Mitigating Network Borders: Balancing User Wants, Business Needs, and Security
Many companies find themselves in a position where balancing wants, needs, and requirements ends up compromising security in ways that leave them vulnerable to current threats. However, by digging deeper into the packets and the communications they comprise it’s possible to not only increase security, but fulfill business needs and user desires.
Brian is a 15 year SE veteran in the Seattle area with most of those years spent in Layer 7 (NGFW/UTM) Firewalling. His background is EE with an emphasis in high frequency communications.
