Actually, I never even had to make the argument in our enterprise. Our
cybersecurity organization already knew that overall NAT reduced rather
than enhanced network security and had a deeper real understanding of
security defense in depth than I did. I never had to convince anyone that
NAT wasn't a security feature. It sounds like we have so many enterprises
that do security poorly because many don't even understand the basics.
