Crossbeam, Spirent Host Workshops for Network Security and Network Diagramming Professionals
August 28, 2012
Crossbeam Systems, a provider of next-generation network security solutions, in partnership with network testing solutions provider Spirent Communications (News - Alert), is hosting a series of workshops in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia, Brazil, for network security professionals and network diagramming architects in organizations.
The workshops are designed to guide network security professionals on how to effectively deploy security solutions within their networks while maintaining the high levels of performance required for their businesses.
"Today's sophisticated security solutions offer great protection, but the problem vendors don't like to share is the impact these solutions have on network performance," said Rogerio de Campos Morais, general manager of Latin America at Crossbeam (News - Alert), in a statement.
A recent research from Crossbeam has found that many security professionals simply opt to turn off security features because they slow down networks. Most organizations are also forced to make unplanned hardware purchase to maintain security and performance.
The workshop series will help security professionals “cut through the market confusion to demystify security performance and learn how to better gauge the capabilities of security solutions in order to reduce risk and avoid costly mistakes,” according to Morais.
The workshop will include practical advice for network security engineers and network diagramming architects responsible for performance testing and next-generation firewalls. The workshops will deliver the metrics that are important for defining network security in the real world.
The workshops will be held from 4-7 p.m. BRT (News - Alert) at Sao Paulo: Aug. 29, 2012, at the Grand Hyatt hotel; Rio de Janeiro: Sept. 12, 2012, at the Sheraton hotel; and Brasilia: Sept.19, 2012, at the Royal Tulip hotel.
Recently Crossbeam announced today that its X-Series Operating System (XOS 9.9) and X-Series X60 and X80-S security platforms have earned Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation certification at Evaluation Assurance Level 4 (EAL4+).
