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.

When many of us started out in the networking business, we judged the worth of networking products by their speeds and feeds. Typically, these judgments were made based on which product boasted the best specifications. This methodology was easy and straightforward. It seemed quantitative, and appeared quite defensible.

The constant growth of cloud, IoT, virtualization, mobility, and digital transformation has brought tectonic changes to the world of networking. Long viewed as a bastion of single-purpose, inflexible, and closed solutions, networks have started to transform in line with the demands for flexibility, scalability, ease of management, interoperability, and application support. Networking departments need to achieve all of the tasks above while keeping costs under control. Additionally, security requirements for the new network are not letting up — quite the opposite, as the virtualized network (and general IT) environment requires rethinking, virtualization, and evolution of security architectures.
Cloud, social, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are increasingly central to business decisions as the pace of digitization accelerates. The impact of software-defined networking (SDN), virtualization, and converged and hyperconverged infrastructure within the datacenter is substantial. These technologies add complexity but offer enticing opportunities for new business models, revenue streams, operating efficiencies, and agility that organizations must pursue if they want to remain competitive and viable. This pursuit requires businesses to keep up with current and emerging technologies and applications and transform the ways in which they conduct business. At the core of "keeping up" is an organization's datacenter strategy — with an associated technology and services strategy that will either create industry laggards or accelerate innovators.
How will you choose a network solution for your data center to deliver the right blend of performance and cost efficiency? Performance isn’t just throughput. It’s also the intelligence to support your applications with a high quality of experience.

When it comes to implementing and managing an effective digital signage network, every organization has to start somewhere. Regardless of how many screens you have or what applications you’ve deployed, there’s always something new to learn. But you don’t have to learn every lesson on your own. We’ve compiled a list of tips and best practices from organizations of all sizes—companies with implementations ranging from 10 screens to 2,000 screens. Use this resource to learn from the people that have successfully implemented and scaled digital signage within their organizations.
Security has become top of mind for CIOs, and CEOs. Encryption at rest is a piece of the solution, but not a big piece. Encryption over the network is another piece, but only a small piece. These and other pieces do not fit together well; they need to unencrypt and reencrypt the data when they move through the layers, leaving clear versions that create complex operational issues to monitor and detect intrusion.
Larger-scale high-value applications requiring high security often use Oracle middleware, including Java and Oracle database. Traditional security models give the data to the processors to encrypt and unencrypt, often many times. The overhead is large, and as a result encryption is used sparingly on only a few applications. The risk to enterprises is that they may have created an illusion of security, which in reality is ripe for exploitation.
The modern best-practice security model is an end-to-end encryption architecture. The application deploys application-led encryption s

To enable always-on application access and business connectivity, you need a rock-solid network foundation. The increasingly complex, dynamic and fluid relationship between networks and devices requires a new approach to IP Address Management (IPAM) – one that unifies mobile security, address management, automation and self-service to provide actionable network intelligence and a broad span of control. This paper discusses the critical role of IPAM in providing a smarter way to connect mobile devices, applications, virtual environments and clouds.
If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement: Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow. Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.
