Securing today's networks properly takes a variety of skills, the proper resources/equipment, and a healthy amount of patience to pull off - not just your friendly neighborhood antivirus.
In this presentation, we will run through the different layers of network/security architecture to help improve your network's security. Today's most effective security tools aren't always the big shiny expensive ones. We will review some open source tools to help improve your security posture as well as paid ones. Some tools you probably already have (built into your existing network gear)!
