ZK Research: Cisco’s Branch Infrastructure Powers the Hybrid WAN

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Nov 18, 2015
IT has gone through a significant evolution over the past decade. Virtualization has changed the entire face of the data center, the network edge has become predominantly wireless and consumer devices reign supreme. However, one of the few areas of IT that has yet to evolve is the corporate wide area network (WAN). Managing the WAN is something network managers have always struggled with because WAN speeds are typically an order of magnitude, or more, slower than local area networks (LANs).

The Total Economic Impact™ Of Cisco TrustSec

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with Cisco TrustSec, Forrester interviewed two companies. Company A is an organization that provides senior housing for over 22,000 residents in the US. This organization used Cisco TrustSec to provide highly secure segmented mobile network services to its residents. Company B is an international packaging and paper group company experiencing rapid growth. It used Cisco TrustSec as an innovative solution to quickly integrate the infrastructure of new acquisitions into its own and standardize security architecture across its wide area network (WAN) globally. While the case study will talk about the experiences of these two companies, the financial analysis focuses on the impact that Cisco TrustSec had on one organization.

Bolster Network Security with VPN Load Balancing and Redundancy

Published By: Ecessa Corporation     Published Date: Mar 11, 2009
Today’s Wide Area Networks (WANs) are experiencing increased saturation with the deployment of bandwidth-intensive applications, increased numbers of users, and the need for reliable security transmissions. IT personnel responsible for these issues acknowledge the increased congestion and have strived to maintain high levels of network performance. At the same time, IT departments are tasked with the job of lowering the cost of network infrastructure and ongoing operations. Network administrators continually face the challenge of balancing the increased use of critical applications on the Internet, while eliminating downtime and congestion from affecting user quality and day-to-day business operations.

Acceleration 101 - What You Need To Know

Published By: F5 Networks Inc     Published Date: Jan 22, 2009
Getting your applications to work properly over a Wide Area Network (WAN) is a complex task, and it is not likely to get easier any time soon. Trends such as data center consolidation, the advent of Web 2.0 applications, and the move to web-based application delivery have only served to increase complexity and slow user response times. Often, the result is sluggish application response and at worst, abandoned applications and shopping carts due to slow or failed web page loads. The good news is that you can do something to improve application performance over slow or congested WAN networks. An Application Delivery Network can accelerate your applications and help make sure they’re secure, fast, and available.

5 Myths About Enterprise SD-WAN

Published By: Forcepoint     Published Date: Jun 06, 2019
Five false assumptions about SD-WAN By now, almost everyone knows something about software-defined-wide-area networking (SD-WAN). SD-WAN is getting a lot of buzz over its MPLS counterpart, but every innovation in tech comes with certain misconceptions—it’s just part of the territory. Can SD-WAN take the place of internet? SD-WAN doesn’t require on-premises hardware, right? Outside of cost, is it really better than MPLS? Read “Secure Enterprise SD-WAN Myths” for answers to these questions and more, clarity around SD-WAN’s advantages and limitations, and how Forcepoint can help you implement secure SD-WAN for your distributed enterprise.

SD- WAN in the Age of Digital Transformation

Published By: Fortinet EMEA     Published Date: Nov 26, 2018
Most organizations are in the midst of some form of digital transformation (DX), transforming how they bring products and services to the market—and ultimately deliver value to their customers. But DX initiatives also bring complexity for the network operations team. With business-critical services distributed across multiple clouds, this leads to potential performance issues, especially at branch locations. Given these realities, it is no wonder that software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) technology is rapidly going mainstream. Unfortunately, SD-WAN is an example of the paradox of DX: transformative technology can potentially move the business to the next level, but the expanded attack surface it creates can expose the organization to significant risk. That is why an SD-WAN deployment, like every other DX effort, should be accompanied by a security transformation (SX) that rethinks outdated principles, broadens protection beyond the data center, and integrates the security archit

What to Consider When Evaluating your SD-WAN Options

Published By: Fortinet EMEA     Published Date: Nov 26, 2018
Enterprises currently face challenges regarding the price, performance, and flexibility of traditional wide area networks (WANs). Aggressive growth in the adoption of public cloud services (a projected 86% spike between 2014 and 2018)1 is forcing organizations to look elsewhere for a more effective network solution to address distributed traffic across remote sites and branch offices. Some of the specific issues organizations face with their traditional WANs include: - High total cost of ownership (TCO) - Lengthy provisioning cycles - Performance degradation with the growth of cloud traffic - Inadequate redundancy and resiliency - Lack of application-aware connectivity To better manage WAN investments, enterprises are adopting a new approach for their distributed branch office networks. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) offers improved performance, agility, and operational flexibility plus significant cost savings. But not all SDWAN solutions are created equal.
