Challenges of Scaling Firewalls in the Data Center and Cloud

Dan Gould,

This post is a follow-up to More Rules, More Risk.

We recently sat down with CTO PJ Kirner to get his perspective on the implications of segmenting data centers and hybrid environments with firewalls, including:

  • Throughput needs in modern data centers
  • Top considerations for scaling firewalls to account for data center growth
  • How virtual firewalls can become chokepoints in the cloud
 
 
Stay tuned for a third post with PJ focusing on operational cost consideration in a few weeks.
