Network Security Architectures

Network security architecture considers both the architectural structure, as well as the individual security elements within an overall network architecture. These include firewalls, IPS, proxies, access lists, encryption technologies, remote access VPNs, etc.

Over the course of the last decade, the complexity of information systems have increased dramatically. In many cases the associated security architectures have also increased in complexity, in some cases to the point that they are difficult, complex, and expensive to maintain. A strong fundamental architecture is critical in achieving both the highest security posture, while being maintainable and allowing business agility.
