Using Open Source for Network Security

Using Open Source for Network Security

In this session Alan Shimel will discuss trends in open source, focusing on the benefits and challenges of using open source for network security and with regulatory compliance. He will outline the many advantages to using open standards (which includes open source) in product development, especially in network security where integration has become the "holy grail." In addition he will discuss why open source is no longer in the age of innocence, especially in security markets such as intrusion detection/prevention and vulnerability management, and provide recommendations for taking advantage of both open source and hybrid security solutions as they continue to evolve.
