Having trouble telling the difference between a Web App Firewall and an Application Aware Firewall? between a UTM and an XTM? How deep is this deep packet inspection versus that one? How many network security appliances do I need anyhow? Which "products" should really be features? With so much marketing and vendor FUD, how can anyone tell what they really need? How do virtualization, clouds, and APTs affect my ability to do Network Security - or at least change requirement priorities? Together, we will map all legacy network security appliances to a common model and the OSI stack and discuss key changes in the threat and technology landscapes - cutting through marketing and history. Participants will leave better informed and more equipped to save time, money, and hassle going forward.
