Stay tuned for an upcoming podcast that reviews Unified Threat Management and gives some ideas on how it can help your organization. I also identify some things to look for in choosing a UTM solution and some of the changes we can expect in the UTM market. I am working on it now, and should have it posted next week.
In the meantime, keep working on getting the patches from MS yesterday applied. It looks like exploits are already making the rounds for some of these, so stay vigiliant. WatchDog is yellow now due to the issues and exploits.
Also, I had a pretty good discussion yesterday with some Cisco folks. They had some good feedback and such on where they are going with the “Self Defending Network”. I would love to get some client feedback about how people the view the Cisco mission and the products since they have embraced this idea.
