On today’s episode the Datanauts rocket ventures into the treacherous asteroid field that is IT security.
And like an asteroid field, security is constantly in flux. We defend, and the attackers change tactics. We figure out the new attacks, and the rules change yet again. And so it is that the security architectures of old are not the security architectures of today. And the security architectures of today are not likely to be the security architectures of tomorrow.
Our guests are James Holland, a systems engineer; and Aaron Miller, a systems engineer manager. Both work for Palo Alto Networks, but this isn’t a sponsored show. The discussion traces the evolution of security architectures and approaches, the importance of application awareness, and the impact of virtualization, which can both create new risks and provide new opportunities.
We also look at where security is going, how cloud and virtualization will continue to shape your security infrastructure, and how skill sets will have to adapt to support more automation.
