  • HIPAA audit on virtual network

    I'm hoping to find a solid, inexpensive network auditing tool for virtual networks as prep for a HIPAA compliance audit. Does anyone have suggestions of open source or pay tools they'd recommend? Do I need to pull in an outside party for this?

  • Securing the cloud: Is IDS passe?

    It used to be a good design to not only run applications in different tiers, but also physically separate them on different network switches.
