    Hacking has become a large part of the news recently, with large attacks on popular organizations and even our own government. With these occurring on a regular basis, every enterprise should be asking, are we vulnerable? How can I protect my network?

    This session will focus on security products from 2015-2016 that effectively and proactively monitor networks, with a "defense in depth" strategy. These new products are now implementing "real-time" malware detection, which allows for more security against more complicated and ever-changing threats. We assess the products' efficacy holistically by using a scenario-driven approach in conjunction with current security threats.

    Specific topics covered are Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) appliances, sandboxing technologies, Next Generation Firewalls (NGFW), and Vulnerability Analysis solutions.

    Discussions of the security options will include test results from the lab, how the comparison criteria and test bed methodology was selected, and why it is important for product selection and deployment. Finally, the discussion will center on how product effectiveness, performance, and resiliency affect Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) valuation. TCO value proposition for these products will be categorized by product and industry and depicted on an assessment model chart.
