In computing, a firewall is a network security system that monitors and controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. A firewall typically establishes a barrier between a trusted, secure internal network and another outside network, such as the Internet, that is assumed not to be secure or trusted. Firewalls are often categorized as either network firewalls or host-based firewalls. Network firewalls are a software appliance running on general purpose hardware or hardware-based firewall computer appliances that filter traffic between two or more networks. Host-based firewalls provide a layer of software on one host that controls network traffic in and out of that single machine. Firewall appliances may also offer other functionality to the internal network they protect such as acting as a DHCP or VPN server for that network.

Cloud adoption is at the heart of IT transformation.

But therersquo;s a big difference between adopting the cloud and excelling at it.Cloud adoption not only helps companies unlock new operational and cost efficiencies as they migrate systems off-premises but also enables them to take advantage of the rapid pace of innovation happening in the SaaS world. While opening the enterprise to cloud capabilities is an important first step, to truly excel at cloud, IT teams must evolve their approach to systems integration and start building their own custom systems beyond the firewall. As McKinsey puts it in a recent report, we are in the middle of “a radical reframing of what IT is and how CIOs manage itmdash;not as an internal collection of information technologies (IT) but as a broad network of ecosystem technologies (ET).” To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Neutralization reaction

Corporate information security services often turn out to be unprepared: their employees underestimate the speed, secrecy and efficiency of modern cyberattacks and do not recognize how ineffective the old approaches to security are.

And if there is no clear understanding of what sort of incident it is, an attack cannot be repelled. We hope that our recommendations about identifying incidents and responding to them will help information security specialists create a solid foundation for reliable multi-level business protection.
The aim is to give developers and admins a way to test and secure cloud apps.
