Why Cloud Computing is Requiring us to Rethink Resiliency at the Edge
Use of cloud computing by enterprise companies is growing rapidly. A greater dependence on cloud-based applications means businesses must rethink the level of redundancy of the physical infrastructure equipment (power, cooling, networking) remaining on-premise, at the “Edge”. In this paper, we describe and critique the common physical infrastructure practices seen today, propose a method of analyzing the resiliency needed, and discuss best practices that will ensure employees remain connected to their business critical applications.
Next-gen firewalls are failing to deliver on their promise to provide application awareness. There’s an inherent limitation in the effectiveness of signature based application detection techniques that means the majority of app traffic on today’s networks is going unidentified and unchecked. It’s a significant and serious problem. It presents enormous security, productivity, performance, and compliance risks. Fortunately, there’s an elegant and effective solution: Synchronized App Control leverages Sophos unique Security Heartbeat™ connection between Sophos Central managed endpoints and XG Firewall to share network application information with absolute clarity. XG Firewall with Synchronized App Control is able to automatically identify, classify and control all unknown application traffic on the network. It’s a major breakthrough in network visibility and control that renders all other next-gen firewalls obsolete. Download whitepaper »
