Most organizations have a dirty little secret: they are relying on user and password-based authentication to protect sensitive internal applications. With 81% of data breaches involving weak or stolen credentials1, applications that use single-factor authentication are an easy target for attack. Unfortunately, updating internal cloud applications—as well as legacy and custom applications—to support multi-factor authentication can be an IT headache for many organizations.
Okta and Palo Alto Networks have collaborated to make rolling out multi-factor authentication a snap. Join Daniel Lu, Product Marketing Manager at Okta and Kasey Cross, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Palo Alto Networks, to learn:
>The latest trends in credential-based attacks
>Why every sensitive cloud application needs multi-factor authentication
>How to enforce network-level multi-factor authentication without touching your apps using Palo Alto Networks and Okta

It is the purpose of this white paper is to provide guidance to network planners, engineers, and managers who are deploying Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches in a data center as replacements for Cisco Catalyst® 6500 Series Switches.
Enterprise network architectures are evolving as a result of the growth of public cloud, proliferation of mobile devices, and organizational requirement to collaborate with global users. In this on-demand webinar, Gartner Research VP and Distinguished Analyst Mark Fabbi and Akamai Technologies' Enterprise Web Experience Product Manager, Greg Lord, will provide insight into
this new trend.
Federal agencies must take a proactive approach to information and network security due to increasing cybersecurity threats. IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager, built on BigFix technology, is the leading enterprise cybersecurity solution to help combat cyber threats and eliminate vulnerabilities.
Increasingly demanding IT requirements are necessitating change to the data center network (DCN). Like servers and storage, the network needs to evolve to deliver the flexibility and scalability required by a more virtualized IT environment. In this interview, Michele Girola, IBM network integration services product manager, explains how to enhance your DCN to support evolving technologies today and in the future. Listen to the full 12-minute interview or read the two-page abbreviated version to learn how IBM is working with clients to build a better data center network.
This Technology Spotlight examines key trends and discusses the role that Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) plays in addressing these ongoing challenges for enterprise IT and network managers.
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).

As an IT administrator, Lab, or Network Manager, you need to access and control multiple computer systems, perhaps widely dispersed, for routine maintenance as well as for real-time troubleshooting and repair. The tools must enable you to work quickly and securely to access any system regardless of type, brand, or location.
This document is intended to help network planners, engineers, and managers who are deploying Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches in a data center as replacements for Cisco Catalyst® 6500 Series Switches.

In Forrester’s 24-criteria evaluation of videoconferencing infrastructure and cloud services vendors, we
identified the 10 most significant OEMs — Acano, AGT, Avaya, Blue Jeans Network, Cisco Systems,
Lifesize, Pexip, Polycom, Videxio, and Vidyo — in the category and researched, analyzed, and scored them.
This report details our findings about how well each vendor fulfills our criteria and where they stand in
relation to each other to help technology managers select the right videoconferencing infrastructure or
service for their environment.
The four pillars of computing — cloud, mobility, social, and analytics — are driving new levels of network innovation in datacenter networks. These forces are now buffeting the datacenter along with virtualization and the Internet of Things (IoT), resulting in sweeping changes in traffic patterns that expose the limitations of traditional networks and their operational models. To become a resource rather than a bottleneck to overall datacenter performance, the network must deliver not just exceptional performance and scalability but also unprecedented automation and orchestration that can yield agility, flexibility, and service velocity. This Technology Spotlight examines these key trends and discusses the role that Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) plays in addressing these
ongoing challenges for enterprise IT and network managers.

The relentless growth of data and network-intensive applications such as digital imaging, multimedia content, and broadcast/video continues to drive volumes of enterprise data and network traffic. As growth continues, IT managers are challenged with implementing solutions without interrupting critical business processes.
IT Managers are not in the business of luck. They need to prepare for every disaster scenario, every contingency and ensure that even when every object, job and process is running 100% perfectly on the system, some other unforeseen network element doesn't swoop in and ruin all their efforts, just because it resides outside the parameters of the System i. After all, in a situation like this, people remember the one thing that went wrong – not the millions of things that went right – it's unfortunate, but that's life.
Class of Service (CoS) functionality can help optimize network performance. For a successful deployment, network designers should identify all applications, understand requirements associated with each application, designate appropriate mapping for groups of applications and provide mechanisms in the underlying network to deliver CoS. CoS mapping and deployment are important; adhering to tested strategies and avoiding common misconceptions helps IT managers advance optimization across the wide area network.
The term “network management” encompasses a broad range of solutions from single point products to element managers to large enterprise-class solutions. For the purpose of this ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES® (EMA™) report, the term Enterprise Network Management Systems (ENMS) includes network-centric management solutions that are used by large organizations’ operations and engineering teams to discover, monitor, assess, troubleshoot, and generally maintain highly distributed enterprise networks.
For this EMA™ Radar, the focus was put specifically on core capabilities and features primarily associated with network operations’ need to ensure health and availability of the network. Supporting functional capabilities such as performance monitoring, configuration management, asset management, as well as integrated management of connected non-network devices were also considered, but as non-critical (albeit helpful/valuable) extensions.
Making routine changes to the infrastructure should not be an additional source of stress, but with the additional roles of monitoring and troubleshooting often times it is. The reasons for this added stress are described in this paper along with an effective solution for addressing these problems using SolarWinds Orion Network Configuration Manager (NCM) and Athena FirePAC for firewall analysis.
