Organizations recognize the need to integrate security into the fabric of their operations. They also recognize, however, that this means devoting resources to security that might otherwise be available to optimize resource performance. This is no small matter, when seconds (or less) count.

This has long been a challenge with the integration of security into operational environments such as network infrastructure. Inline defense is often a primary means of protecting sensitive resources such as critical applications and corporate networks, but if these measures negatively impact performance, does the business ultimately win?

Today, that question is complicated by a growing range of security challenges that raise the stakes on network security:

>>A wider range of applications and services is growing—and not just in the data center. Endpoint applications further raise the stakes on defense, compounded by a growth in non-traditional endpoints such as smartphones and Web-based applications.

>>Threats and vulnerabilities alike have not only mushroomed in number, but have become even more challenging than before, with more sophisticated attacks demanding more of content inspection for security

>>These factors lead to greater demands on security functionality in the network. But what does this mean for security performance?

Join EMA Research Director Scott Crawford and IBM Director of Product Management for Security, Risk and Compliance Joe Anthony for this Webinar where they will:

>>Identify network security challenges

>>Explore how IBM technologies help solve these challenges

>>Highlight how performance-enabled security convergence defines the next generation of network security

>>Teach organizations how they can achieve both security and performance across a wide range of demands
