Episode #10: The Case for Virtual Cybersecurity

Traditional methods of on-premise cybersecurity cannot keep up with the scale, frequency and sophistication of today’s cyberattacks. That’s why businesses need virtualized cybersecurity solutions. They not only help businesses to react quickly to threats but also to control security spending with just in time provisioning.

For improved responsiveness to threats, one must look at virtualized cyber security solutions such as a Virtual (vFirewall) deployed on a Software Defined Network to close the gaps with on demand provisioning and scaling.
