Overall rating: 4.69 Instructor: 4.84 Materials: 4.69 more …

Anything is marketed as a virtual firewall these days, from contexts on physical boxes to hypervisor kernel modules and VMs with a kitschy GUI in front of iptables. This presentation will walk you through the virtual firewalls taxonomy, describe the major architectural options, and illustrate typical use cases with sample products from Cisco, Microsoft and VMware.

If you’re a network or security architect, designer or implementation engineer working in virtualized environments, or involved in design or deployment of public or private clouds, this 2.5-hour webinar is a must-have overview of available technologies, deployment scenarios, and scalability concerns.

About the webinar

Webinar was great, I learned also things which I had no idea that exist and get definitely input and ideas which will use in my work.

Thank you Ivan.

The webinar was very well delivered and hit all the technical points I was hoping to have covered. As a network architect these webinars are an excellent way for me to keep up to date with technology developments.
