Our CEO, Rajat  Bhargava, takes on the topic of network-based security in a cloudy world in his feature article in O’Reilly Programming. This was also a hot topic at February’s America’s Growth Conference panel that Raj was on with folks like Marty Roesch (Sourcefire / Cisco) and Jay Chaudhry (ZScaler).
