Nuage Networks: Using SDN to provide Security by Design by Christoph Torlinsky at DevSecCon 2015


Published on

As Datacenter architectures have incorporated virtualization, new application topologies, new programming constructs such as Docker Containers and increasing levels of automation, new security gaps have emerged. This workshop describes how Nuage Networks fills critical security gaps within and across datacenter. The session was held on October 22, 2015 at DevSecCon London.
