About the Webinar

Data security is no longer just a back office function. From customers to the board, everyone wants to know their information is safe – so IT executives need to constantly marshal their resources, and keep on top of increasingly complex threats.

The right firewall is an essential piece of the security puzzle keeping unwanted internet traffic and applications from your network and employees. But the threat landscape is constantly shifting, and staying on point needs focus and expertise at a time when IT is busier than ever.

Cloud-based security services promise robust, agile protection while cutting costs and freeing up IT staff for other priorities. But are they a realistic answer? On June 27th, Nemertes Research Analysts John Burke and Henry Svendblad reveal their latest findings in a live webinar.

They’ll compare costs and benefits of DIY, cloud and hybrid firewalls, at a time when increasing reliance on mobile, SaaS and internet-as-WAN is making security more complex – and important – every day. Register now, and you’ll be first to hear Nemertes new, research-backed insights on the rapidly changing security scene, the options available to you and the key steps you might want to consider for the future.
