Tune in to The New IP's Radio Show for a discussion with Ray Watson, VP of technology, and Mike Stute, chief scientist, at Masergy, to get an inside look into how service providers and large enterprises can assure network security in a cloud-based NFV infrastructure. On the show, Watson and Stute will discuss how New IP software-based networks built on virtualized functions may introduce a host of potential new security vulnerabilities thanks to the separation of the software function from the physical hardware. They’ll also cover the importance of assembling and orchestrating all the right security components to provide VNFs and their underlying execution environments with the right level of security, and talk about how to ensure security is preserved in an NFV environment.  Finally, they will discuss why the “old ways” of perimeter-based security can be inadequate for today’s virtualized, programmable and mobile-enabled networks, and will also be available after the show to take your questions in a live, interactive chat.
