Scheduled for Tuesday, May 13 at 11:00 am ET, the webinar will address how smart automation combined with network analytics enables an efficient, secure and compliant network change process.

Today, most organizations are struggling to improve their network change processes which have become slow, inefficient and labor-intensive. Security Policy Orchestration is quickly gaining acceptance as an effective way to ensure secure, complaint change processes in a way that increases business agility. This webinar will provide participants with helpful insight into today's shifting network security landscape and how virtualization, the cloud, and the rise of software defined deployment models are expanding the role and relevance of firewall operations teams, and how firewall managers can ensure that they are positioned for success as these shifts continue to unfold.

In addressing the complexity of policy management, the webinar will help participants understand the migration path towards automation, and what future drivers and considerations will be required in managing security policy complexity across physical and virtual networks.

"The network security market is in a state of constant change, challenging organizations at every stage on how to best optimize and maintain a strong security posture," said Harrison. "Webinar attendees will gain practical knowledge of how automating security policy management can deliver substantial cost savings, increase business agility, and introduce the ability to streamline change management processes by as much as 80%. We'll also explore how to effectively scope and communicate the cost savings, security improvements offered by Security Policy Orchestration and frame a realistic action plan for implementing efficient, secure and compliant network change processes."
