A New Security Approach to Combat Today's Threats

  • A New Security Approach to Combat Today's Threats-

    Protect Remote Locations

    Branch offices demand secure, high-speed connectivity to enable remote workers to have persistent connections to headquarters and to the Internet from their disparate sites. However, the total cost to acquire (TCA) and total cost of ownership (TCO) of provisioning security tools at each remote location can be prohibitive. Look for ways to extend existing security solutions in the core network out to the network edge.

A modern approach to security needs to start with one assumption – you have been breached. While consensus has been gaining on the breach assumption for some time, changes to security architecture have been slow. Security still operates in the traditional role of the defender, highly focused on protecting an impossible number of endpoints.

Changing the nature of how we think about security changes the role the defender has to play, and takes the power away from attackers. By focusing security resources on detection and containment, with a strong emphasis on network visibility, enterprises can turn the tables on cyber criminals. This new approach sends a clear message to the attackers – getting into the front door is fine, but you'll never get out. In this slideshow, Gigamon has identified five steps organizations should take to redesign their approach to security.
