Mobile security
Bill, great video, I liked seeing the detailed example showing a specific security product and the different functionality it includes. Can you recommend other vendors that offer similar mobile security platforms as well?

Application Firewalls
Bill, I'm struck by your mention of application firewalls, which ties in very nicely with a recent column by Jeff Williams, CEO & Co-Founder, Aspect Security and also a founding members of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). Jeff's point was that the industry still has a long way to go with application security within the development environment. Another contributor, Levi Gundert, mentioned behaviour scoring as defensive measure in his column about Zero-Day Drive-By Attacks: Accelerating & Expanding

That's kind of a roundabot way of asking you where you  see the most bang for the back in next generation secruity -- baked into the applicaton itself, in the intellegient platforms and tools that you speak about in your vblog, or a combination of the two.

Re: Application Firewalls
@Marilyn - It's definitely a combination of the two. Applications, APIs, and information all require good security practices. In some cases, security components are built into Apps, APIs and the infrastructure that supports it all. 

On the other hand, having overall environment security is a must as well. This means having intelligent systems which act proactively to mitigate as much threat to your infrastructure as possible. In all honesty this is what the future looks like too. Developers will build in security components into their apps. That will then couple with  infrastructure security solutions to ensure data and application integrity.

Re: Application Firewalls
Thanks Bill. That sounds like an ecosystem that will require some greater standardization. Is that happening?

Re: Application Firewalls
@Marilyn - That's a great question. I'm not sure if it's something we'll see standardized. Instead, it's the new application of security technologies around platforms like cloud, big data and applications.

Even then it's hard to tell. The entire security model is shifting to support a more dispersed and dynamically connected user.

Re: Application Firewalls
Bill, that's a great point. One other trend I see gaining a lot of ground is toward securing the data itself, as well as the environement, devices, and apps. Especially now that companies are adopting cloud services and may have less control over their environments, data security becomes even more important.

Re: Mobile security
@Susan - Absolutely, NetScaler platforms are just one example. Next-generation security is really making a boom right now around application, data, and cloud security. Solutions from Checkpoint, Palo Alto, and Sourcefire (Cisco) all introduce new ways to secure the logical layer.

Remember, next-generation security is a concept -- not just one singular product. For example, an F5 Big-IP ADC (like the NetScaler) can also have components that fall into the next-generation security definition.

If you can make it more simple, but more safe it will be a success. This is the direction that we should be thinkings.
