JULY 25 | 11:00AM  PT (2:00PM ET)

As organizations begin their migrations to the cloud, security needs to meet the evolving challenges. Cloud-based firewalls are a key part of those security plans. In this webcast SANS analyst Kevin Garvey explores key features of cloud-based firewalls and how they differ from more traditional firewalls, the ease with which organizations can manage firewalls in AWS, and advanced features of firewalls that are of significant value to users’ organizations.

Register today to be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by Kevin Garvey.

Attendees will learn how:

  • Web filtering, network logging, intrusion detection and prevention systems, single sign-on and authentication support, and deep packet inspection function in a cloud-based environment
  • Easily they can manage firewalls through APIs, AWS CloudFormation and independent software vendors
  • Features such as behavioral threat detection and next-generation analytics can enhance the security that firewalls provide
  • A firewall can be deployed and advanced features enabled in an EC2 instance

Who Should Attend?

Security practitioners (Security Analysts, Security Architects, Senior Security Engineers, etc.), Cloud Security Architects, and the office of the CISO.
