By Greg LaBrie |   Feb 20, 2020

When it comes to upper level executives and their IT security teams, there seems to be a disconnect when it comes to the level of support IT needs to protect the enterprise. In order to better prevent a security breach from is happening, it’s important that the C-level executives are aware and on the same page with your enterprise security team. Only 12% of C-suite executives expect a major, successful attack on their organization in the next 90 days.

Does Your Next-Generation Firewall Deliver Performance and Speed?

By Michael Thweatt |   Jul 09, 2019

Networks continue to grow in both size and complexity. Enterprises need modern security solutions that better protect their network traffic.

NGFWs are able to inspect traffic at a much deeper and more detailed level than their predecessors. They can also detect hidden threats in encrypted traffic. This capability is especially important as encryption technologies continue to evolve and more and more traffic is encrypted. An NGFW is a vital component of your security arsenal, but not all NGFWs are created equal. An effective firewall provides robust security through a simple management platform while meeting the speed and performance needs of your enterprise.
