The Top Five Risks of Perimeter Firewalls and the One Way to Overcome Them All

Download Info593 KB | PDF

Firewalls have long been an integral part of the enterprise network architecture. But with the shift to digital business models the once-sturdy firewall has gone from a security staple to a security risk. Here’s why. In a traditional perimeter-based security architecture that leverages firewalls and VPNs, security is constrained to the perimeter or zone of trust. Any user or application inside the perimeter or trust zone is considered good, and those outside are considered bad. This worked well when most users and applications were inside the perimeter. Anyone outside the perimeter had to be brought onto the network by extending the perimeter to them. This was treated as an exception to include them in the trusted zone.

In this whitepaper, we’ll detail the five major risks brought about by legacy firewalls in a cloud and mobile world and how to relegate them to the past with a modern zero trust approach.
