Why are traditional network security perimeters not suitable for the latest consumer-based network endpoint devices?
- These devices are not managed by the corporate IT department.
- These devices are more varied in type and are portable.
- These devices connect to the corporate network through public wireless networks.
- These devices pose no risk to security as they are not directly connected to the corporate network.
Answers Explanation & Hints:
Traditional network security has two major focuses: (1) end point protection using antivirus software and enabling the personal firewall, and (2) network border protection with firewalls, proxy servers, and network packet scanning devices or software. This type of protection is not suited for the new network devices that are mobile, frequently access cloud storage, and may be a personal device.
