Preparing for Emerging Network Security Threats
New Surveillance and Encryption Approaches for the Evolving Network
Today’s network is being transformed to protect against continually emerging threats as well as for the delivery of new services for this purpose. With the need to accurately manage, secure, and control network traffic at wire speeds, the network is evolving from a simple switching and routing medium, to a policy enforcement engine requiring deep-packet inspection and real-time content processing.
Traditional networking platforms have historically focused on delivering high-speed connectivity. Conversely, today’s policy-centric networks require platforms that go beyond this to deliver high-performance packet handling and encryption capabilities necessary to meet the demands of next-generation network applications - intrusion detection and prevention, anti-spam, anti-virus, universal threat management (UTM), and VoIP security. Enterprises, however, are unwilling to trade-off high-speed network connectivity for security protocols that require these deep-scanning or data intensive applications. As such, there is a growing conflict between the network connectivity layer and the software-based network policy layer which is driving the need for a new class of infrastructure devices and applications to accurately secure and control network traffic at wire speeds.
At this discussion, we will take a look at the security network from both the inspection and threat detection perspectives. Kyle Rosenthal and Greg Ketell from Bivio Networks will being discussing the requirements for powering processing-intensive networking applications and taking a look at how open source, and in particular Linux, is causing a fundamental technology shift in networking.
Kyle Rosenthal currently serves as Western Region Director of Commercial Sales at Bivio Networks. Kyle has over 12 years of experience in Internet Networking and Broadband and has worked for companies including Juniper Networks, Cox Communications and Excite@Home. He has served as an expert panelist on emerging security technology and publicly speaks on high-performance network traffic processing and emerging network services.
Greg Ketell is currently serving as the Western Region Sales Engineer for Bivio Networks. Greg has over 16 years in the Corporate and Internet Networking industry and offers a breadth of knowledge gained from his experiences designing, implementing, and supporting customer networks while working at industry leading companies like BBN, Cisco, Juniper, Netscaler and now Bivio Networks.
