To maximize the benefits of its next-generation systems and successfully execute its information strategy, CU had to overcome its aging network. Most of CU’s network infrastructure, which was built from solutions by another vendor, was introduced in 2007, when its computing center was first built. Over time, the equipment began to fail, affecting the stability of applications which relied on network connectivity. Technical support also became a major issue as the equipment faced obsolescence and maintenance contracts with vendors expired.
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.

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.
Rapid increases in network traffic volumes, security threats and application complexity all underscore the importance for lossless data capture, analysis and storage to provide crucial raw data for post event analysis and remediation.
Viavi commissioned Tolly to evaluate the performance of its Observer GigaStor family of capture, analysis, and storage solutions. Specifically the tests that focuses on bench marking maximum sustained full packet capture/write rates and greatest burst performance with no packet loss while delivered robust encryption of stored network data.
The digital financial services world has created an amplified set of challenges for the data center and network. Its role in enabling the success of the wider institution has become even more critical, but to deliver this it needs to provide a higher level of performance with increased agility, while maintaining high levels of efficiency and security.
This is forcing institutions to transform their underlying IT capabilities, with the need to simplify the network, obtain more flexible connectivity, automate IT operations, and enable centralized control and administration being core strategies in this respect. As shown in Figure 8, this is driving a number of requirements for the future network. Key considerations for financial institutions in architecture design and vendor selection should be around moving toward a software-defined, intelligent, cloud-ready, and open network that enables the institution to meet its ICT imperatives and achieve these key ICT strategies.

The security perimeter once familiar to the enterprise has become incredibly fragmented. Data and applications reside everywhere: on the network, endpoints and in the cloud. The cloud, in particular, is seeing huge growth with enterprises adopting these environments at a rapid pace. According to Gartner, 55 percent of large enterprises will successfully implement an all-in cloud SaaS strategy by 2025.1 Combined with an increasingly mobile and global workforce, and more importantly, increasingly distributed SaaS cloud environments, organizations are now faced with securing a multitude of applications, users, devices and networks – all hosting sensitive data that is critical to business growth, reputation and customer trust.
Building out a dedicated infrastructure with the agility, scalability, and effciency of a public cloud—while enjoying increased levels of control and security—can help enterprises boost agility and improve operational ef?ciency. However, while most private cloud networking services provide basic load balancing functionality, they lack important application delivery features, putting the performance, availability, and security of applications at risk.
As private clouds increasingly host mission-critical production applications, advanced application delivery services for layers 4 through 7 are becoming essential. End-to-end integration, orchestration, and automation of the needed application delivery networking and security services are also critical to improve application time-to-market and operational ef?ciency.
A new survey commissioned by Palo Alto Networks and conducted by Enterprise Strategy Group explores why enterprise IT leaders are embracing CASB products, where they are using them, and what capabilities are most important to them. One of the most critical needs is securing the use of SaaS applications. Here’s what you need to know.
