Posted by Security Tech Alliance on May 30, 2017 8:30:00 AM | Topics: Malware, Firewall, Data Protection, Access Management

In a previous blog, we explored the common blind spots in company networks. As networks increase in complexity, cyberattacks become more difficult to detect and prevent. Virtualized infrastructure and mobile endpoints make workplaces more efficient and flexible, but they also reduce network visibility and create opportunities for hackers to infiltrate your system. While encrypting your traffic protects your sensitive data from prying eyes, it can also prevent your security tools from seeing anomalous patterns that signal a breach.

Top 5 Reasons to Switch to Internal Network Segmentation

Posted by Security Tech Alliance on Jan 3, 2017 12:15:48 PM | Topics: Firewall

The traditional firewall is one simple perimeter that surrounds an organization’s network. Once a hacker makes it past that firewall, the interior is flat. A flat network configuration makes it easy for hackers to access an organization’s data, as there are no further firewalls or obstacles to overcome.

This type of flat network might have been enough to protect an organization’s data a decade or so ago. But, the threats of today have created the need for a different solution.
