One of the biggest misconceptions about security appliances is that they are all the same. Just because a device has the word security does not mean it is secure enough for your organization. Firewalls may look alike, but they are not the same.

Managers need to ask themselves what real value they are getting from their security appliance. Do you have full visibility of traffic traversing your firewall? Are you scanning data between different internal networks for malicious attacks? What level of protection do you have against zero-day attacks? With the lack of technical resource, are you able to automate the process in the event of an attack? And do you have the technical expertise to ensure your device is configured optimally?

The attack surface is growing every day and the organization needs a solution that will provide value and peace of mind, without breaking the bank.
