Why do we touch barbed wire when we come face to face with it? It’s dangerous, sharp and uninviting, yet we can’t help but reach out a finger – however gently, to touch the spikey prongs and press just hard enough. In short, there is something inherently and humanly satisfying about coming close to danger and walking away unhurt. What is this human compulsion to play with fire – or wire? It’s the sense of power over the elements that plays to our inherent need to control and be inspired by what’s around us.
The world is bigger now. It’s not the walls and barbed wire of the world that protect us and mystify us now. With money in banks, food in refrigerators, alarms on doors and networks connecting us all, we walk that same line between danger and safety from behind the warm and comfortable glow of a screen. For many of us, it’s second nature to use computers and phones for work, shopping, banking and anything else we need or want – it’s all at our fingertips. Enter the era of BYOD. Today we use phones to communicate with colleagues 3 desks away and work computers at home. We should wonder – what protects us and our businesses from infiltration, infection or theft?
This is the job of business owners, IT specialists or executives – you protect the people who work with you and by proxy, protect yourself and your livelihood. These people don’t touch barbed wire or light fires to simply feel powerful – they look for weaknesses, test for strength and consider how this boundary protects their business and employees. Sangfor Technologies
believes and invests in (40% of our revenue to be exact) network security and cloud computing with the knowledge and confidence that we can dream up just as sophisticated ways of protecting our clients, customers and consumers as hackers can dream up ways of threatening them.
The Sangfor Solution:
These dreamers are the ones responsible for the creation of Sangfor’s NGAF
hardware firewall solution. As the world’s first AI enabled next generation firewall, we’ve integrated it with WAF and powerful protective innovations like Neural-X (threat intelligence and analytics) and Engine Zero (malware detection) – and the things our customer need, like a holistic overview of the network security of the entire business and easy O&M. Consider how visibility of threats masquerading as legitimate traffic could enable IT to mitigate risks with a single click. Or how real-time detection puts security back in the hands of those we trust. Simplifying O&M leaves IT free to focus on a wider range of issues and even optimization while high performance application layer security means the apps we use for work, home and entertainment are secure both in and out of the office.
Without the dreamers who see opportunity in boundaries and light the fires of inspiration we would be nowhere. Technology is a beautiful thing with a life of its own – and Sangfor is inspired.
