    It was covered on slashdot a couple of weeks ago.

    It starts off with grand contentious statements such as "I proposed to
    our technology architects that we eliminate our network firewalls", but
    in the details we see that they implement a tiered structure with a DMZ
    and ACLs on layer-3 switches, which from a distance looks a lot like a
    firewall structure to me.

    So, they seem to have got rid of the commercial boxes with "FIREWALL" on
    the front, and implemented defence in depth. Good on them for thinking
    about the problem and implementing a nice workable solution, but its
    hardly new.
