Managing Risk While Getting Closer to the Network Edge

ThreatTalk season 3 episode 17

The shift to the network edge is transforming the work environment but there is so much information about it, including some confusing marketing messaging, that many are unclear about why it matters, what it costs, and how they should go about assessing and altering their own operations. The Sr. PMM for cloud-managed core networking solutions at Infoblox, Rod Dixon, joins this episode of ThreatTalk to update us on the shift to the edge, and provide some thoughts that can help anyone trying to make decisions about the transition.

Other referenced materials include a recent Dark Reading article, a related webinar with Dark Reading, and an Edge Networking for Dummies eBook by Glenn Sullivan & Rod Dixon.
