Is open source software a security risk?

Time: Tuesday, June 12 | 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM PT

Networks are changing. With the growth of cloud, containers, IoT and other burgeoning technologies, networks need to be agile, scalable and secure. In the world of a network engineer, the main goal is to facilitate the transfer of data from one place to another. If it interferes with the flow of packets and frames, it’s not your friend. So, when considering security it can seem like a hindrance to network operations and speed.

Yet as the industry evolves, security risks do not lessen. If anything, the intentional and accidental risks present in today’s world are only growing. And since the network is the heart of the data center, a security threat is a threat to the business overall.

  • How do open source technologies compare to closed, propriety softwares in terms of security
  • Is it possible to meet security requirements of today’s data center networks when leveraging open source software?
  • What is the best way to build a flexible, cost-effective and programmable network to leverage the disaggregated model.
