In addition, you’ll also learn how US Signal, a leading provider of data center and managed cloud services, has rapidly deployed, managed and secured their clouds in real-time with VM-Series for its 400+ managed cloud customers, as well as strengthened its own security with virtual firewalls.

Assess Financial Impact Before You Buy

Knowing the financial impact of a new security solution for your company, prior to purchase, is invaluable. You’ll hear from guest speaker Samuel Conway, a Principal TEI Consultant at Forrester, explaining how the firm built a model of a composite organization to determine the potential ROI of an investment in VM-Series Virtual Firewalls.

You’ll hear how VM-Series boosts security efficiency in a composite organization based on over 130 customers:

  • 90% reduction in time required to deploy firewalls.
  • 80% improvement in network and security team efficiencies.
  • 67% decrease in downtime per employee.
  • 45% reduction in downtime length.

These benefits stem from significant operational efficiencies and exceptional network security capabilities as businesses make the critical migration to the cloud and take a cloud-first architecture strategy. VM-Series Virtual Firewalls offer a broad range of capabilities that transcend today’s network security challenges across public, private and multi/hybrid-clouds, as well as virtualized data centers and software-defined branch locations. Join the webinar to hear from Conway as he discusses how the TEI methodology works and the key results delivered from this study.
