Commentary and Opinions

By Steve SpatigWith reports of widespread data breaches in the global spotlight, data center managers are under increasing pressure by regulatory bodies to ensure that access to restricted information is protected. Cyber security remains a number one priority, but in many cases, data breaches occur because an employee is given temporary physical access to that data in some way. Within the data center environment, preventing unauthorized physical access to sensitive government data is crucial.
By Kirk Spring As we’ve seen by recently reported hacks of healthcare networks, security breaches are becoming commonplace. Attacks on secure networks can come from internal or external sources. “Breach prevention” is no longer a workable strategy.
Washington, March 18 – The National Retail Federation has presented Congress with practical, commonsense and achievable solutions to better protect consumers and help businesses prevent cyberattacks and data breaches.“We should not be satisfied with simply determining what to do after a data breach occurs,” NRF senior vice president for Government Relations David French said. “Instead, it is important to look at why such breaches occur and what the perpetrators get out of them so that we can find ways to reduce and prevent not only the breaches themselves but the follow-on harm.”

Abstract:

Network Access Control and 802.1x - Advantages, Constraints and Capabilities

Written by distinguished security industry analyst Pete Lindstrom of Spire Security

The industry has been blurring the differences between 802.1x and NAC. Some believe that 802.1x is sufficient and similar enough to a full NAC solution to start down the path of implementation. What organizations often find is that the 802.1x story seems fairly simple and easy, but the deployment is much more difficult. This paper examines the fully 802.1x and NAC details such as:

    * What is 802.1x?
    * What important features are missing from 802.1x?
    * What alternatives exist to 802.1x and why?
    * What are the hidden costs associated with rolling out NAC?
    * How can commercial enterprises and government organizations benefit from NAC?
