This white paper examines five steps to better security that today's retail businesses can't afford to ignore on their networks - from application control to data loss prevention - to ensure business continuity and PCI DSS compliance.
Everyone knows that effective network management practices start with establishing a full foundational understanding of the network. But simply monitoring individual elements can only get you so far. Historically, going the next step requires manually building and maintaining the knowledge of how those disparate elements are connected and how they interact with one another to deliver applications and communications. In other words, you need to understand network-level dependencies.

Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is the application of software-based
network technologies to WAN connections to more effectively route all network traffic
between headquarters or data centers, remote and branch offices, and the cloud.
The SD-WAN market is in the early growth stage of the product lifecycle. Key factors driving market adoption include: cost
savings from efficient usage of private and public networks, ability to optimize hybrid cloud connectivity, and applicationaware
As organizations prioritize digital transformation initiatives, many are finding that legacy
networks are holding them back. To support new business models, cloud adoption, and an
explosion in connected devices, modern networks must support interoperability across data
centers, multiple clouds, branch locations, and edge devices. Applications now run at every
point on this spectrum, and they are critical to businesses’ ability to win in hypercompetitive
marketplaces. Yet, even as business success has become more dependent on
this new architecture, and the amount of data flowing across connections has increased,
many organizations still lack a unified approach to management, automation, and security.
The network of yesterday is not the network that can take businesses into the future. As mission critical enterprise applications move to the cloud, wide area network (WAN) must adapt to become agile, flexible, and scale rapidly. Leading IT trends such as Internet of Things (IoT), Software as a Service (SaaS), cloud storage, enterprise mobility, emerging transport alternatives, and globalization increase the importance of how network assets are leveraged and how the network is conceptualized. The advantages of public and private data centers and cloud-based applications are significantly diminished if the network is slow, inflexible, and unpredictable. Erratic network performance with high latency, jitter and packet loss can significantly impact user adoption, satisfaction, and overall corporate productivity.
As connectivity options continue to emerge, end users are no longer tethered to the office or to the localized applications and services that were trademarks of a primary or branc
Use this step-by-step guide from enterprise technology expert David Linthicum to help improve your network to handle services delivered from multiple clouds. With the right network infrastructure, it is much easier to connect, secure and speed up delivery of all of the cloud applications and services consumed by your organized. No matter where you are in your cloud implementations, learn best practices and strategies in this eBook series focused on Building the Network that Empowers Digital Business. Part 2 of the series, this guide focuses on best practices and creating a master implementation plan. Interested in crafting your strategy and business case for using multiple clouds, watch for Part 1 in the series "The Evolution from Network to Multi-Clouds."
Application performance management (APM) tools allow enterprises to proactively manage their investments in bandwidth and the business-critical applications used every day. An application performance management solution is recognized as an essential component of WAN optimization-techniques that help businesses get the best possible performance from existing networks.
However, building a business case for an application performance management solution requires more than a belief in its benefits. It requires some data to quantify the value of a bottom-line result.
This white paper reviews ten business scenarios in which application performance management solutions are used to monitor applications across the WAN deliver a quantifiable Return on Investment (ROI). Example cases and calculations are provided for each scenario, describing how companies have quantified the value of an APM solution in that area.
One of the leading ways that today’s organizations are providing secure, reliable and scalable answers for their networking needs is through MPLS IP-VPN network usage. However, businesses are also looking to create Intelligent WAN that integrates security, application performance management, and cloud services in order to create more intelligent wide area networks. This paper examines how to use the attributes of MPLS-based VPNs to enable enterprises to create a truly intelligent WAN, discussing key planning, implementation and management considerations to pave the way for a more intelligent and cloud-enabled WAN.
Technology trends like telecommuting, BYOD, VoIP and SaaS adoption bring new challenges to the underlying network infrastructure that connects branch offices and datacenters. This guide explains how to tackle the challenges faced by the internet-centric enterprise by intelligently monitoring your WAN, LAN, Wi-Fi and SaaS applications through a combination of Enterprise and Endpoint Agents.
Traditional enterprise performance management solutions were designed for applications running inside the corporate network and are unable to provide visibility beyond the corporate network perimeter. With the rapid adoption of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications by enterprises, these performance management solutions that are completely blind to issues outside the enterprise, are unable to help IT teams troubleshoot performance problems with the SaaS applications.
Is your IT organization taking the proper steps toward successful cloud adoption?
Legacy networking technology is hampering IT agility. Cloud providers have initiated an agility revolution but secure inter- and intra-cloud network connectivity are still very challenging. Easier alternatives are either expensive, worsen application performance and/or hamper network efficiency. Riverbed’s unique SD-WAN solution helps unlock agility across the complete enterprise network allowing for easier deployment and management of cloud-centric networks. This cloud adoption Use Case outlines challenges and solutions for cloud-centric enterprise architectures including:
· Unlocking cloud agility through simple workflows in the WAN such as single-click secure connectivity to cloud and branch networks
· The importance of bandwidth reduction and application acceleration to ensure cloud adoption
· Distinguishing between application and network problems through enhanced visibility
