The Time for Intent-Based Security is Here


In the world of cloud, microsegmentation and DevOps, firewall rules quickly become obsolete and unwieldly.

The time for intent-based network security (IBNS) is here. The key to IBNS is defining a desired security state and leveraging automation to turn security intent into actual security enforcement across distributed, fragmented environments without ever having to write a rule yourself.

In this session, we will explore strategies for defining security intent and reveal how to take IBNS from a great idea on paper to a great idea in practice.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn the keys to intent-based networking security
  • Learn strategies for defining security intent
  • Challenge the notion of firewall rules in the new networking rules
  • Understand the required technology for enforcing security intent
