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.
