One question seems to be on every CIO’s mind…
How can our organization unlock YouTube, Twitter and Facebook and still be secure?  Well it can be done and here is a plan.

  • Virtual Applications set up in the DMZ
  • Kiosk Access
  • Set up a Virtual Internet Application Social Media Security Server  (See Diagram Below) in your DMZ to ensure you can give access to Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, LinkedIn, etc without compromising security
  • Kicker – Add a Separate Social Media non business grade line from Comcast to run streaming media and social media applications through.
  • Allow access to Facebook without compromising corporate bandwidth or adding virus and malware propagation risk through this channel by using Next Generation Firewalls through Sonicwall
