Although the growth of cloud-based data centers offers opportunities to more rapidly deploy applications, it also raises new security issues, says Steve Pao, senior vice president at Barracuda Networks.
As a result, network architecture is changing to deal with evolving threats, he explains.
In an interview at the RSA Conference 2014, Pao describes:
- How to deal with threat vectors at the web application level;
- How to secure network connections to and among data centers;
- The importance of centrally managing network, e-mail and web app security.
Pao serves as senior vice president and general manager of the security business at Barracuda Networks, where he is responsible for strategic product direction, definition, program management and development for all of the company's security products. The security business brings together Barracuda's content security, network security and application security product portfolio, as well as the Barracuda central content team.
