Data Center Network Security – Navigating Through Upheaval


January 20, 2016

Today’s data center looks and acts much differently than it ever has before, especially as cloud technology evolves and expands, more enterprises are interested in using big data, and other IT trends emerge. RSA Conference has teamed up with analyst firm Dell’Oro Group for a webinar discussion to walk through some of the biggest changes to the data center and how they are affecting network security, including:

  • Network migration to higher speeds;
  • The outsourcing of applications to the cloud; and,
  • The network architecture shift from static pathways to automated flows that can be dynamically monitored and updated.

Join Casey Quillin, the Network Security & Data Center Appliance analyst at Dell’Oro Group, Fahmida Rashid from RSA Conference, and an end user as they chat through some of the new challenges confronting network security in the data center, what end users are doing now and what they can do in the future, and what might lie ahead for the data center in 2016.
