STATE OF THE NETWORK STUDY

Published By: Butler Technologies     Published Date: Jul 02, 2018
The Tenth Annual State of the Network Global Study focuses a lens on the network team’s role in security investigations. Results indicate that 88 percent of network teams are now spending time on security issues. In fact, out of 1,035 respondents, nearly 3 out of 4 spend up to 10 hours per week working exclusively on these types of problems - in addition to managing network upgrades, SDN, cloud, and big data initiatives. When it comes to technology adoption, both cloud and 100 GbE deployment continue to grow aggressively. VoIP adoption is closing in on 60 percent and software-defined networking (SDN) is projected to cross the halfway mark, indicating compounding network complexity amidst the ongoing struggle to ID security threats.

The Rise of Tier 2 Testing

Published By: Butler Technologies     Published Date: Jul 03, 2018
Industry standards have been established to ensure performance, consistency, and interoperability between network equipment vendors. However, the consistent implementation and operation of these standards become even more critical as speeds and bandwidth increase. At the fiber infrastructure level, this also means more testing may be needed beyond the basic fiber end-face inspection certification and Tier 1 testing. This white paper explores Tier 2 optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) testing and examines its relationship to Tier 1 testing and how inspection plays into both. This paper defines Tier 2 testing and explains when it is needed. It also addresses the OTDR complexity argument.

As Your Network Gets Complex, Managing It Must Get Simple

Published By: HP - Enterprise     Published Date: Jun 05, 2013
As the networks become ever more essential to business processes, they are also increasing rapidly in size and complexity. Many factors can affect network availability and performance—increasing traffic, configuration problems, failed network elements, changes, and more. Since not all of these problems are hard failures, managing the network to detect and correct business-impacting problems requires new tools, strategies, and initiatives. To deliver the availability and performance business demands, network management teams need to optimize fault management and ensure availability, unify fault and performance management, automate change and configuration management to ensure compliance, and automate IT processes. This integrated approach is called Automated Network Management (ANM).

Why more Tools Won’t Protect Your Network

Published By: Forcepoint     Published Date: Apr 20, 2016
This will appear under the headline in some cases; in other cases, just the long description will appear. Both descriptions should work independently of each other and not be super redundant if possible: Relying on point products to protect your network is a losing strategy. Having tools than your IT team can handle raises costs, complexity and risk. Deploying enterprise security architecture with control over enforcement, coordination, end-to-end visibility and process automation from a single pane of glass, is the winning approach.

How an Engineered System Optimizes Business Results

Published By: Oracle     Published Date: Jan 28, 2019
Databases tend to hold an organization’s most important information and power the most crucial applications. It only makes sense, then, to run them on a system that’s engineered specifically to optimize database infrastructure. Yet some companies continue to run their databases on do-it-yourself (DIY) infrastructure, using separate server, software, network, and storage systems. It’s a setup that increases risk, cost, complexity, and time spent deploying and managing the systems, given that it typically involves at least three different IT groups.

Maximize Productivity with Secure Delivery of Applications to Mobile Devices

Published By: Citrix Systems     Published Date: Jul 25, 2016
The modern enterprise workforce poses new challenges for IT. Today’s employees work in more places, on more devices— personal or company-owned—and over more networks than ever, using a diverse array of datacenter applications, mobile apps, SaaS and cloud services. As they move among apps, networks and devices, IT needs to be able to control access and ensure data and application security without impeding productivity. That means enabling users to get to work quickly and easily in any scenario without having to deal with different ways of accessing each app. Traditional VPNs and point solutions add complexity for both users and IT, increase costs and fail to enable a holistic approach to business mobility. Over the years, many IT organizations have addressed these evolving requirements through point solutions and by case-by-case configuration of access methods. The resulting fragmented experience poses a key roadblock to productivity and increases user frustration. For IT, the lack of a
