"Hello, Corporate Security Weenies. Please get with the program."
Via CSO Online.
Although attracting support worldwide, American businesses arent
necessarily buying into the Jericho Forums urging to rely less on
hardened perimeter security -- firewalls and intrusion detection -- in
favor of tougher internal security.
The forum, which is made up of CSOs from some of the largest international
corporations, says it sees growing adoption of its once-radical idea that
businesses should reduce dependence on firewalls as a way to defend against
Internet threats. Nearly half -- 45% -- of those polled by the forum say
they are implementing network security that complies with forum
Forty-eighty percent say they agree strongly that such a security
realignment actually improves their companies ability to do business,
according to a survey of forum members. About half the members responded to
the survey, 64% European and 29% American.
