Conquering Cyber Risk in 3rd Party Communications
Today’s firewalls do a fantastic job of protecting packets as they enter and leave the network. But they fall short for communications entering and leaving the fuzzy edge of the enterprise. They have no real idea of who, what, where, when and how, and hence no real concept of trust beyond IAM. We need a new kind of firewall that employs these factors to protect the communication, not just the traffic: a content firewall.
content firewall noun \ ˈkän-ˌtent ˈfī(-ə)r-ˌwȯl \
A hardened platform that consolidates content flows across communication channels to enforce security policy and gain visibility over enterprise content shared with 3rd parties.
