Feature: Looking beyond firewalls for security

Security, according to Helen Keller, is a superstition. It's found nowhere in nature, but we keep trying to achieve it, and there are many products on the market to help us. The most common - firewalls - are widely installed and continue to evolve with features and functionality.
But firewalls, posted at enterprise network portals to limit access from the Internet, are only part of a comprehensive security strategy. They don't provide protection from viruses that enter through e-mail servers, for example. Nor do they offer protection against individuals downloading or e-mailing content that could put your company at risk.
