10th Annual Well-Connected Awards: Security

The security market has begun to wise up and focus its energies where assets reside--on the desktop or server. Network-centric technologies are the easy road because desktops and servers don't have to be touched, but network technologies can't protect data where it rests. Host protections, such as desktop firewalls integrated with VPN and antivirus, work together as a final line of defense against perimeter attacks. Host intrusion-prevention systems provide an added layer of protection by establishing tight controls that regulate access to system resources. Integration of host protection and network access that IPsec and SSL VPN vendors have built into their gateways will only mean better protection against fast-moving worms.
