Massive shifts within the digital business landscape are sparking immense opportunities and reshaping every sector.
In some cases, complete upheaval is happening at lightning-fast speed. In other instances, digital undercurrents are stirring beneath the surface as organizations scramble to monetize vast volumes and variety of data in an effort to sharpen their competitive edge and not be blindsided by unforeseen events that completely upend existing business models.
While long-standing industry leadership might be no match for the next cool app, agility, speed and the ability to harness more data than was ever imagined is fueling powerful possibilities for reinvention among companies of every size.
Data is following rapidly from mobile devices and social networks, as well as from every connected product, machine and infrastructure. This data holds the potential for deep insights that can replace guesswork and approximations as to locations, behaviors, patterns and preferences. As the w

We live in the age of “multi”. Everything is becoming more complex, more “intelligent”, and more distributed. Hybrid cloud isn’t really the new frontier—some companies have been operating in a hybrid cloud environment for nearly a decade—the new frontier is learning HOW to take full advantage of hybrid cloud without creating data silos or busting the IT budget.
Enterprises are, of course, always looking for ways to make their computer systems faster, more highly available, more fault tolerant, and simpler to scale.
But in the age of “multi,” this is becoming harder and harder to do.
Imagine running a social network with millions of U.S.-based users and millions of European users. You could host all your servers and data in the United States, but then all of your European users would have a slower experience using your application than their U.S.-based counterparts. You could host all your servers and data in Europe, but then the U.S.-based users would have a slower experience.

Today’s workforce is increasingly nomadic. Employees use personal and company-owned devices – desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones with various operating systems – to access corporate resources over different networks from virtually anywhere. Roaming users and cloud-based applications have eroded the network perimeter where enterprises have traditionally focused their security controls.

SaaS has fundamentally changed security requirements. We used to just go into work, and everything—corporate applications, sensitive customer data, employee health records, etc.—was within the “safe” four walls of the corporate network behind a firewall.
Now employees work remotely and use mobile devices, including unmanaged, personal devices. They access SaaS apps that live in the cloud without any sort of firewall that IT can use to monitor and manage access. Prominent examples include Salesforce.com, Google Apps, Office 365, Box, and many others.
As employees use these SaaS apps, they are creating proprietary company data, often confidential in nature, that exists outside the control of IT, creating new challenges for security teams.
In this new world, IT needs to track sensitive corporate data in third-party SaaS apps, and ensure that only the right people have the right level of access to it. In this whitepaper, we’ll explain ten steps on how to do that

Today’s security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. OpenDNS arrests attacks earlier in the kill chain. Enforcing security at the DNS layer prevents a malicious IP connection from ever being established or a malicious file from ever being downloaded. This same DNS layer of network security can contain malware and any compromised system from exfiltrating data. Command & control (C2) callbacks to the attacker’s botnet infrastructure are blocked over any port or protocol. Unlike appliances, the cloud service protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protects every device connected to the network — even IoT. It is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.

In the early years of software development, you would often design it, build it, and
only then think about how to secure it.
This was arguably fine in the days of monolithic applications and closed networks,
when good perimeter-based protection and effective identity and access management
would get you a long way towards minimising the risk. In today’s highly connected,
API-driven application environments, however, any given software component or
service can be invoked and potentially abused in so many different ways. Add to this
the increasing pace of change through iterative ‘DevOps-style’ delivery and ever-faster
release cycles, and many understandably assert that security management and
assurance nowadays needs to be an ongoing and embedded part of the development
and delivery process.
Without question, your network is more complex than ever before. Your employees are accessing any application they want, using work or personal devices. Often times, these applications span both personal and work related usage, but the business and security risks are often ignored.

Often times, these applications span both personal and work related usage, but the business and security risks are often ignored. Prospective employees are asking about application usage policies before accepting their new job. Adding another layer of complexity is the concern about the effectiveness of your cybersecurity posture. Is your business a target for a cyberattack Is it a question of when, as opposed to if? And are you as prepared as you could be? The complexity of your network and your security infrastructure may limit or slow your ability to respond to these and other cybersecurity challenges.
In today’s complex network environments, applications, infrastructure and threats are dynamic. As such, relying upon various, single-purpose security devices that don’t integrate with each other results in dangerous security gaps. These devices are poorly coordinated and unable to provide comprehensive security and threat prevention. To protect against today’s advanced attacks requires a natively integrated, next-generation approach to security – an approach that can keep up with the latest application and infrastructure trends and recognize and stop today’s most advanced threats.

To meet the growing challenges of a competitive world economy, a digital transformation is taking place in the enterprise. Organizations realize that to be competitive they need to be more agile. They need to reach their customers wherever they are, and they need to be able to scale their applications to meet customer demands.
To meet these challenges, organizations are deploying new microservice applications that are changing the application delivery environment. These applications are agile, configured to enable new features to be added without disrupting applications in production, and designed to automatically instantiate instances in response to increasing user demand. In short, microservices are drastically changing the way that applications are deployed and managed. This introduces a high level of complexity to network infrastructures because traditional applications are not going away. Applications will continue to be designed for both microservices and traditional 3-tier imple
It used to be that you would build out your datacenter with all the right considerations in place, purchasing equipment that was sized to meet the needs of your organization for today and the near term future.
Change used to be merely planning for capacity upgrades or network expansion, or migrating to the latest application version—or more simply put: things we could measure, control and manage.
With the advent of the cloud, the rise in cyber-based threats, and the need to do more, faster, we’re witnessing a perfect storm that is making it more and more difficult for the enterprise to plan for change, and to maximize the investments that they make in their IT infrastructure today.

The world of IT is undergoing a digital transformation. Applications are growing fast, and so are the users consuming them. These applications are everywhere—in the datacenter, on virtual and/or microservices platforms, in the cloud, and as SaaS. More and more apps are now being moved out of datacenters to a cloud-based infrastructure.
In order for an optimized and secure delivery of these applications, IT needs specific network appliances called Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs). These ADCs come in hardware, virtual, and containerized form factors, and are sized by Network Administrators based on the current and future usage of applications. The challenge with this is that it’s hard to foresee sizing or scalability requirements for these ADCs since users are constantly increasing, and applications are consistently evolving, as well as moving out of datacenters.
Complicating matters, most ADCs are fixed-capacity network appliances that provide zero or minimum expansion capability

Let’s face it, users are impatient. They demand a blazingly fast experience and accept no substitutes. While the effects of poor performance are obvious, it makes one wonder about the relationship between client latency and the “perception of speed”. After all, the user can trigger many state change events (page load, submit a form, interact with a visualization, etc.) and all these events have an associated latency to the client. However, are certain types of latency more noticeable to the user then others?
Organizations don’t know what’s going on inside their networks, and that’s costing them real money. Deploying an intelligent recording fabric with guaranteed 100% packet capture, accuracy, and storage is fundamental to solving the problem. But how do you embrace the new paradigm? To get started, create a list of the system criteria that are mandatory to delivering reliable and complete visibility information to your engineers, so you can be sure their decision-making is on target.
The impact of network performance problems on worker productivity has become a serious business risk. To mitigate it, organizations need to strategically embrace a network recording infrastructure that provides them with accurate, network-wide visibility. Only accurate visibility will empower them to slash maximum and mean response and repair times and keep network-reliant business applications and processes running.
