Especially in flat networks, that is networks without network segmentation, even less attention is paid to what equipment is being used, what it takes to replace it, and what sort of trouble an outage can cause.

For more than ten years, I have been advocating the use of real, XTM (extensible threat management) security appliances for even home use because anything less is just grossly inadequate.
