Hello loyal blog readers. Over the last few weeks I have been busy working on a network assessment for one of our fantastic customers. One of the areas we look at when assessing a customer’s network is how they are protecting/restricting access to the management plane of their network infrastructure.
As threats become more sophisticated, organizations are responding by introducing layers of security that go beyond just securing your internet edge and deploying anti-virus on the desktops. A big challenge with this approach is managing the often disparate systems that make up these layers. Cisco has made huge strides to correct this with their software releases this year, but in reality, it still requires a trained team to monitor and manage these solutions. Leaner IT teams are desperately looking for an easy to manage tool with nice reporting that catches the vast majority of issues. After deploying and managing Cisco Umbrella (formerly OpenDNS) for customers and for LookingPoint internally, I really believe this is the tool that will get the most use and provide the highest overall value for your security dollar.
