Re: Cyber Terms
Correct, @tcritchkley07... I used firewalls as just one example of compartmentalization. But the term could also apply to the bucketize slide or the micro-services slide as well, which both try to create similar boundaries in the name of better security.

Was there a specific application of compartmentalization you were thinking of?

Isn't compartmentalization the same as the more modern 'segmentation' of various entities, not just firewall traffic?

Re: To Buzzword #7 - Compartmentalization
Thanks, stormrunner2... what Fortinet's doing seems to track closely with this intelligent segmentation trend we're seeing from various vendors and startups.

To Buzzword #7 - Compartmentalization
Have you looked at companies like Fortinet and ISFW (Internal Segmentation Firewall) solution?  They have been running at 100Gb speeds for a couple of years now.  And announced a 1Tb throughput firewall in Jan-2017 (https://www.fortinet.com/corporate/about-us/newsroom/press-releases/2017/the-worlds-first-terabit-firewall-appliance-ngfw.html).

Does this not solve the usability issue of mantaining LAN speeds with Layer-7 inspection services?

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
