December 20, 2018

A major goal of branch consolidation with SD-WAN is overall reduction of WAN cost and complexity through managing bandwidth requirements and automating change management and policy adherence, while simplifying appliance and software sprawl. Branch-edge infrastructure complexity and cost remain significant issues, as the average branch office of mid- to large-enterprises typically includes four to five individual hardware and software components, making product acquisition, integration, operations and support both time consuming and very high cost. Enterprises have initiated a wave of digital transformation strategies that is changing the fundamental approach to how business and productivity services are delivered to their internal…

Disruptive technologies, like blockchain, usher in new market opportunities, like cryptomining.  Whenever there is a growing trend, with the potential for financial gain, cyber criminals will invariably find ways to disrupt and distort these markets. Cryptomining is highly compute-intensive, using computer resources, such as CPU cycles, to mine “cryptocurrency”. Miners are paid for solving CPU intensive cryptographic challenges that validate each block of a transaction added to a cryptocurrency’s blockchain. They are paid a certain amount of cryptocurrency into their cryptocurrency wallet as commission for validating a transaction. . Anywhere there is a profit to be made, capable people will…

SD-WAN continues its rapid growth, as enterprises look to simplify WAN infrastructure and provide new services that help them compete in today’s software-driven environment. Software and automation are the leading technologies that will drive IT and networking systems to support business-critical operations and strategic initiatives. While enterprises have been the primary benefactors of SD-WAN, the trend is moving toward the consumption of networking and security as managed services. In fact, IDC predicts SD-WAN managed services will soon out-pace do-it-yourself (DIY) SD-WAN, and grow to $5.4 billion by 2022. This follows a similar direction that enterprises have taken, moving from internally…

Sensor, telematics and actuator technologies are developing at an unprecedented rate. This trend is due, in large part, to the exponential growth of IoT, and increased sensor accuracy, reduced size, cost and the ability to detect and measure things that weren’t previously possible.  In fact, sensor technology has become so advanced, IoT devices already far outnumber users, with billions of IoT devices already deployed, and billions of new sensors expected to be deployed each year. In our quest to make connected things perform more efficiently and with more enhanced features, we have to make them, and the connectivity ecosystem, smarter. Actually, to enable…

The recent surge in cryptomining is providing cyber criminals with more vectors to attack, at the expense of legitimate users. This year has seen a huge increase in the deployment of numerous malwares, with cryptominers as primary or secondary payloads. Cryptominers are becoming easy targets, that allow attackers to go a step further to disguise themselves as the miner in the form of a flash update. Palo Alto Networks reported a list of collected samples, some dating back to August 2018[1]. The author further adds that installers from the Adobe website were legitimate, and the malicious ones were mostly Windows…

Telecom carriers are uniformly seeking ways to broaden their connectivity services for enterprise customers. One motivation is to offset MPLS revenues, which are essentially flat and are expected to decline over the next few years. Broadband and wireless connectivity services are growing fast, with no sign of abating, but revenue from vanilla broadband is much less profitable than MPLS. This scenario is where value-added gateway services may be the key to future revenue growth. Managed service providers already moving in this direction are beginning to reap the benefits. According to research by Catherine Hammond with Analyses Mason, operators now see…

Everyone in IT is keenly aware that the cloud and SaaS are a double-edged sword. On one side, many benefits ensue, like offloading high CapEx and lowering OpEx, and divesting of complex and bloated hardware-based infrastructure. The more challenging side lies in the ever-growing cloud applications that employees in every department are using, many of which are unknown to IT. Cloud and SaaS apps are growing so fast that IT has a difficult time keeping up with the demand. In fact, according to Goldman Sachs, the cloud computing and platform market was just over $10 billion in 2013, and is…

Ransomware is a form of malicious software that latches onto a system and encrypts the files within it, making them inaccessible to the user. The attackers behind this malicious activity typically demand payment in terms of currency (crypto or cash) in return for the keys to decrypt the files.  A recent ransomware which has become viral since January 2018 is named GandCrab. This ransomware is believed to be distributed as a Ransomware-as-a-Service [2,3]. GandCrab initially differentiated from other ransomware by demanding a ransom in DASH [7] cryptocurrency. The developers behind GandCrab have been continuously updating and releasing improved versions, with…
