Secure Network Fabric is my term for the idea that networks should be secure.
I was excited to stumble upon a company called ConSentry. The call it a secure LAN controller. I call it SNF.
The recent convergence between switch and IPS companies also points to a general trend here. Look at 3Com + Tippingpoint and Force10 + MetaNetworks.
I can think of some other mergers that should happen....
