In this installment of the series we switch over to podcast/video mode, with FireMon Founder and CEO Jody Brazil joined by leading industry expert and Securosis Analyst Mike Rothman to discuss and debate the matter at hand. (Click link to view video)
Will firewalls break out of the box? How will the trend toward hyper-segmentation influence the process? And where does the added capability of the NGFW model factor into it all? Importantly, will the leading firewall providers of today advance their capabilities to address tomorrow’s requirements, or be replaced by someone else?
These are just a few of the issues that Jody and the ever-outspoken Mr. Rothman bring to the table.
After you’ve watched the video on YouTube, we hope that you’ll head back to the blog to offer your comments or contradictions.
Do these guys have the answers or does the debate introduce even more questions to consider?
Join the discussion!

So you’ve purchased a new firewall. Now what?
You’ve got to decide which access is allowed, which isn’t allowed and whether or not rules are compliant with internal and regulatory standards.
Things are running along smoothly and then the dreaded “change.” A user submits a new access request and the fun begins. Is this access necessary? Safe? Compliant? And what happens when it’s time to retire unused rules?
How Effective Security Management Can Help Teams Cover the Exponentially Increasing Gap between Technology & the Resources Available to Manage It
Security teams today are under tremendous pressure due to the rising frequency and impact of breaches and a business that wants to move faster and faster. The answer to both of these challenges has always been to add more technology and staff resources.
However, each new technology added creates complexity. More rules are created and more data is generated. As networks continue to evolve, this complexity will only grow. And while staff resources may increase, they will never match the exponential growth of technology.
FireMon calls this phenomenon The Complexity Gap and has set out to help security teams close it.
Join us for this webinar with Frost & Sullivan where we’ll explore the causes of “The Gap” and how workforce multipliers such as intelligence and automation help staff manage their security more efficiently and more effectively.
Helping Enterprise Security Teams Improve Resource Efficiency & Reduce Overall Risk Exposure
Firewall technology has come a long way since its initial, most rudimentary forms. Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW) are the latest development, and organizations are accelerating adoption to the new technology. But NGFWs aren’t a fix-all solution.
