eXtending Network Security
Show Notes Chapter Markers

The network perimeter basically no longer exists, and the latest security solutions need to account for the new normal. Aaron Chen and Shane Davis with Sophos join us to talk about how the network security landscape has changed just in the last couple of years, new business cybersecurity and connectivity priorities, and the latest Sophos products that address them, including XDR (extended detection and response) and the XGS firewall series - along with the Xstream protection included within.

In headlines, we talk US government action on cybersecurity, businesses willing to pay the ransom if attacked, and a nuclear North Korean cyber attack.
