Free report: Why layered security works
Posted on 06 March 2014.
Since the dawn of civilization people have thought they were more secure than they really were. Babylon once felt so secure behind its massive walls and sturdy gates that its king feasted while the Persian army laid siege to the city. The Persians entered early the next morning by damming the river and wading along the riverbed, right into the city. Our modern digital kingdoms are no different.


We may think one layer of security will protect us—for example, antivirus. Unfortunately for that approach, history has proven that, although single-focus solutions are useful in stopping specific attacks, the capabilities of advanced malware are so broad that such protections inevitably fail.

In this paper, we discuss how the layered model is more relevant than ever and how a layered approach to security provides better protection of your organization's IT assets.
