Another RSA: Evolving Trends in Cyberthreats

The idea that firewalls and the perimeter are becoming less important is a growing trend. There is so much opportunity for compromised devices inside the network, including BYOD laptops and phones, that we can’t think of the inside as safe anymore. If the inside is dangerous, then we need to secure all the internal surfaces to withstand attack. And if we are doing that, why not make everything easier and make them public facing? This idea is not completely crazy. It will be interesting to see how it stands up in real world use.
