Summary : The traditional network perimeter defense of firewalls and IDS is intended to restrict unwanted network
activity from entering or exiting the corporate network, but it falls short as a reliable defense for
larger business networks. Secondary defenses, or Firelines, can be utilized by network security
firefighters to improve the overall defense of the corporate network. This talk will discuss several
strategies and methods devised to identify and respond to internal threats, anomalies, and misconfigurations
without the use of traditional IDS or Firewalling methods.
