"Every emergency today is the result of a bad decision yesterday." - Jeff Pollard on our webcast
Our guest, Jeff Pollard, Principal Analyst, Security and Risk at Forrester, joined me to discuss the modern challenges network security professionals are experiencing today. Many network security architectures still look like they did five or ten years ago, even though technology has evolved considerably. Organizations find themselves backhauling data to legacy secure web gateways, and paying the price for increased bandwidth backhaul and additional hardware as their organizations grow and become more distributed. Even worse is many security decision makers feel like there are only two options: staying the course and continuing to pay for decisions made based on legacy systems, or believing their only option is to rebuild their network from the ground up to move to a cloud solution.
