What’s next for data center firewalls?

Duration: 45 min + Q&A



Your data center looks very different today than it did a year or two ago. Monolithic, centralized, physical resources are increasingly giving way to hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Applications are becoming distributed and modular, trusted users may be located anywhere, and East-West traffic suddenly represents the new network perimeter.


As this new world of virtual cloud networking takes hold in the data center, the need for efficient, effective data center firewalling becomes even greater. However, everything about the data center firewall is also changing, including where it lives, how it protects the software-defined data center, and what kind of new management, integration, and automation benefits are becoming possible.


Join this webinar to learn about the evolution of data center firewall platforms, key architectural and functional changes, the benefits for enterprises, and the most important considerations when designing network security for the software-defined data center.


Who Should Attend:

CIO, CISOs, security architects, security managers, security directors, cloud architects, DevOps engineers, DevOps architects, DevOps leads, DevOps specialists, cloud architects, cloud security architects, network architects, network engineers, data center architects, data center engineers, IT operations directors, and IT operations managers.
