“Security by design is a mandatory prerequisite to securing the IoT macrocosm, the Dyn attack was just a practice run.” – James Scott, Sr. Fellow, Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology.

A series of carefully mastered DDoS attacks paralyzed internet services on the East Coast, affecting the businesses of market giants like Amazon, Netflix, PayPal, Starbucks, Verizon, Visa – the actual list is longer, and pretty impressive. The US Department of Homeland Security launched an investigation and it revealed that the extremely sophisticated attack was a botnet that spread through a large number of Internet…

My apologies. The SD-WAN Expo at Fort Lauderdale, Florida concluded on 16th of February 2018 and I have been wanting to write this blog ever since. But the weekend following the expo and a larger part of this week has been packed with responding to the overwhelming number of queries that we received from IT leaders and CIOs. In a good way, that reiterates the magnitude of buzz and curiosity SD-WAN has been generating in the market. And it is only fair. Almost every organization today has at least one application residing in the cloud and SD-WAN is going to…

SD-WAN: Making Sense of the Cloud Cuckoo Land

You finished moving your applications to the cloud. The project went live, and you hoped that soon you would be reaping immense benefits from your cloud investment. You wait. And wait some more. And then reality strikes. Mainstream network technologies that build up most enterprise networks of today were not built to handle the dynamic, anytime anywhere accessibility of workloads in a cloud environment. To truly reap the benefits of a cloud strategy, you need to compliment it with a network that is intelligent, cloud-native, secure and still cost-effective. SD-WAN is your answer. Enter the Cloud Transformation Era Enterprises are…

SD-WAN: More than a Hybrid WAN

June 7, 2017

Companies looking to expand their WAN networks are rich in choices: They can stick with a traditional WAN or go with a hybrid or SD-WAN architecture. Given the costs and provisioning delays associated with traditional WANs, a growing number of companies are turning to hybrid or SD-WAN. It only makes sense: Because they facilitate the use of direct internet access (broadband) as an alternative method of branch connectivity. Hybrid and SD-WANs are much lower in cost than MPLS WANs. However, there are distinct differences between hybrid WAN and SD-WAN architectures that are worth noting, especially for companies looking for more…

The channel is known for sometimes adapting to change at a snail’s pace. Their business has, for years, been served well by technology vendors who relied on them as conduits for their hardware sales (and sometimes installation services). And, for those resellers—whose sales can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars per transaction—there hasn’t been a good reason to change. The technology landscape is evolving, however, and more resellers are waking up to a new reality. Technology trends such as cloud applications and resources, along with the Internet of Things, are putting intense pressures on traditional networking infrastructure, and…

The world of cloud, mobility and applications has gotten us on a path to the Internet of Everything. The need for speed is driving every business to rethink their infrastructure and network. The benefits of Cloud have made it compelling for businesses to adopt a ‘shrinking data center’ approach. This, combined with the increased adoption of cloud-based applications by lines of business, requires a change in architecture of the wide-area network and…

The growth of software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) has created new opportunities for distributed enterprises to better manage their WAN environments, but it has also given rise to several incorrect assumptions about the technology and how it’s used. It’s something that happens with any new technology. As the technology gains attention and acceptance in the market, some misconceptions about it are also bound to spring up. Here are three of the biggest myths that surround SD-WAN … and the real story behind them: #1: Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) will be entirely replaced by public Internet transport connections The real story: The reasoning…

NFV vs. SDN: What’s the Difference?

September 27, 2016

Telecommunications companies have taken a strong interest in SDN. At the same time, more enterprise use cases for NFV have been emerging. Network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) are related and both use network abstraction. However, SDN separates and abstracts the control plane into software from the data plane, which remains in hardware, and NFV is a combination of separating wholesale network and security functions into specific software, then service chaining them. NFV: NOT JUST FOR TELCOS When network function virtualization (NFV) first started making headlines about four years ago, the initial use cases for the technology had…
