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?

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.

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

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?

Re: Cyber Terms
No, just trying to get temrmnology straight in my mind in the context of security. Thanks.
