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?
