    Complexity is the Enemy of Security – Tempered Networks Has Solutions

    Effective security is no longer an option – it’s mandatory. Would you get on a plane that was sort of maintained? No, of course you wouldn’t. So, why would you have a network that is kind of secure? The truth is the internet, TCP/IP, isn’t secure. It was never designed to be secure, and yet it is the backbone of global commerce and communications. The information that travels across the internet is valuable and it is big business to steal it. Some of the biggest risks in network security aren’t equipment or technology related. They are people related.
