Strategies for Navigating a Successful Cloud Migration

October 26, 2020

A third (33%) of all organizations have failed to successfully implement their cloud strategies in 2019. Despite best efforts post-migration, network performance, security, and management problems continue to shoot up. As failed cloud migrations glaringly highlight the need to reinvent traditional WAN networks, organizations are increasingly turning to Secure SD-WAN for the help they need to successfully move to the cloud. Who doesn’t want to move to the cloud today? It’s scalable, flexible, and cost-efficient—everything that traditional data centers are not. Besides, users have grown increasingly mobile, making the “anytime, anywhere, and any-device” access the new normal for business continuity….

Secure SD-WAN Architecture: Full-featured SD-WAN Deep Dive

CMO, Versa Networks
September 9, 2020

What makes the Versa Secure SD-WAN solution a better choice than the average SD-WAN offering in the market? As with any other assessment, you have to lift the covers and look underneath—see what’s inside, how it’s built, how the engine works, and how it achieves the oft-touted qualities you’d come to expect of a robust SD-WAN. A significant part of the sophistication lies in the control plane: how the secure tunnels of the overlay are built; how control traffic is separated and secured from data plane traffic; how traffic in the tunnels is abstracted as “bundles” that fan out over…

Secure SD-WAN Architecture: Genuine Multi-Tenancy

Multi-tenancy for an enterprise? It’s a service provider thing! No, not really, in the e-commerce age you need it more than ever. There are myriad reasons to secure your enterprise network with a genuine multi-tenancy architecture—it’s critical to plug the security deficits of the also-ran legacy tenancy architectures. Listen to this webinar to hear Neil Danilowicz, Principal Architect, and myself, discuss the essentials of a genuine multi-tenancy architecture: the complete isolation of the control, data and management planes. If any of these planes bleeds across—in a shared device; in shared access to any network resource—it opens a security vulnerability. Enterprises…

Top 5 Business Transformation Trends Driving Network Transformation

May 21, 2020

The digital transformation has made the network indispensable. As your network goes, so your business goes. Everything is connected: static and mobile devices all communicate via the network. Extraordinary statistics suggest 51% of CxOs don’t know what their industry might look like in 2023; that there might be a 50% turnover in the S&P over the next five years. Agility is survival. Traditional hub & spoke networks were designed for client-server access to centralized information by a set of known, stationary, IT-controlled endpoints. Today’s business does not operate that way. The number and types of devices have exploded, they—and their…

Secure SD-WAN Architecture Overview

May 7, 2020

Why not keep the WAN you already have? Why migrate to Secure SD-WAN? In a nutshell: to remove complexity and inefficiencies from your network operations; to use an architecture tailored specifically to address the heightened security needs and altered traffic patterns in your network. The typical legacy WAN branch office contains a tall stack of boxes: WiFi, switch, router, WAAS, security appliance. And if you already have an SD-WAN deployed, then also an SD-WAN box. A lot of boxes, consuming power and space. Tracing the path of a packet through this quagmire, fully 60% of the processing is duplicated in…

Fiserv is the biggest financial company you may never have heard of. Every non-cash financial transaction that you conduct touches their network. Security is paramount for you—the consumer; for Fiserv’s clients—financial institutions, point-of-sale and payment industries in more than 100 countries; and for Fiserv’s global corporate network. Look at the staggering numbers on the right! If a company this size can successfully deploy a Secure SD-WAN, then the early adopter phase must be long over. It is. Mainstream companies like Fiserv are now deploying SD-WAN technology to manage—or survive—this era of rapid digital transformation. Which is not necessarily super-disruptive: SD-WAN…

The Wave of Reality

After a successful exit with one of the top SD-WAN companies some have asked why I joined Versa Networks. History has shown us that industry disruptions often occur in waves.  The first SD-WAN wave of infancy was made up of a number of pure-play startups (including Versa) who entered and helped form the market. The second wave could be referred to as the wave of insanity. The market exploded to nearly 80 vendors many of which were jumping in to “pivot” some or all of their business to SD-WAN. There were quite a few others who simply put an SD-WAN…
