044 – Dynamic Networks Require Dynamic Security

IT infrastructure has changed dramatically over the years. Data centers are no longer castles surrounded by moats that are entirely self-contained and shut off from the outside world. And that means the ways of securing the castle have to change, too.

Faraz Aladin, Head of Technical Product Marketing at Illumio, talks with ActualTech Media Partner James Green about those changes in this episode of “10 on Tech.” Servers and data is no longer contained – clouds, edge computing, and the Internet of Things have made sure of that. In this new world, can all your stuff even be made safe? The answer might surprise you.

Highlights of the show include:

  • Why we’re still experiencing so many massive security breaches
  • The reason huge, complex firewalls aren’t enough anymore
  • How to get control of your network security by getting down to the workload level
  • The security breakthrough powered by adaptive micro-segmentation
