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).
Today’s K-12 schools are hungry for bandwidth. The reason is clear: highperforming, reliable and easily expanded network services support the latest classroom innovations, including videoconferencing, 1:1 computing, distance learning and modern learning management systems. It’s no surprise then that progressive educators now see a direct link between the overall success of their school districts and access to high-capacity networks. This emerged as a clear trend in new research by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) — a commanding 98 percent of administrators and IT representatives said the future of K-12 education hinges on ubiquitous connectivity.
This white paper lays a framework for planning and implementing high-performance networks. In addition to explaining why now’s the time to plan network upgrades, this paper answers one of the fundamental questions asked by IT managers at schools everywhere: “How much network capacity will we actually need?”

Dataflow is increasing at a rate unseen in history. Network managers are tasked with enabling massive quantities of
new data in a secure and highly available fashion, all while facilitating access to new types of form factors and data
stores. This challenge is often met with layers of networking
hardware and tools resulting in a complex mess, or even worse, a
culture of network protectionism that inhibits business innovation.
This whitepaper examines the way in which enterprise mobility has both increased employee productivity and decreased the security of corporate networks. The paper discusses the challenges IT managers have with controlling the "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) trend to allow mobile users to have access to the corporate network. Explained in the paper is the limit to visibility and control of file transfers when employees use ad hoc methods, and that educating employees on proper data access is not enough to protect the corporate network. The paper concludes by describing how Globalscape's EFT™ and Tappin™ can provide mobile access, without compromising security and controls over file sharing.

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.
