Unified communications or collaboration solutions in the private network were supposed to relieve IT from the burden of manually assuring service-level quality by off-loading some of the peripheral applications workload to cloud-based managed services. However, as voice application features advanced incorporating voice, video and interactive elements, quality suffered – digital voice and video-conferencing packets buffered, which were reasons why IT and MSPs ended up battling dramatic increases in service trouble tickets. The problem, however, is not with the concept of UCaaS; it is more about the underlying connectivity solution that transports these applications. Legacy WAN architectures with their inherent drawbacks…

Gartner estimates that the average cost of network downtime is around $5,600 p/minute, which extrapolates to just over $300K p/hour. A large financial impact for any organization. To further highlight the impact, here is a video about the hidden costs and business implications of IT downtime. IT leaders and CIOs acknowledge the importance of constant network and security monitoring to provide visibility, and even automation, to resolve events that lead to network downtime. As a result, most enterprises will identify that they have a number of network management and monitoring tools in place to help them see, mitigate and resolve…

September 5, 2018

The cloud imperative stretches the network perimeter from a branch office or remote site location to a distributed-application model wherein SaaS acceleration is key. As traffic moves to and from branch locations and multiple clouds over the Internet, SD-WAN and layered security are required. Just as the cloud is more than hosting apps and infrastructure, SD-WAN is more than circuit aggregation and dynamic path selection. Organizations need more than reliability and agility; those are table-stakes outcomes. A modern SD-WAN implementation requires a broad set of functions when connecting to multiple clouds like routing, NAT, DOS, DHCP server and relay, stateful…

The 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) compiled by Verizon is loaded with cloak and dagger cyber events conducted by both known and unknown bad actors and mechanisms. Verizon identified 53,000-plus incidents and 2,200 breaches in only 12 months, suggesting an information parallel universe in which an uneven playing field exists whereby the bad guys and rouge bots consistently probe from the outside. Here are some of the key findings in terms of actual breaches: 73 percent were perpetrated by external forces 50 percent were carried out by organized crime groups 48 percent were due to hacking; 30 percent from…

Once again, recently we heard about an enterprise that succumbed to a major security breach. Shipping giant COSCO lost email and IP phone connectivity throughout their entire US network. And without finding the cause, the company shut down networks within other regions. This example, along with countless others, solidifies the point that distributed networks and security are inherently symbiotic. COSCO says the incident was a network breakdown that led to the ransomware infection. While some are arguing it was the network, others say it was a Malware security breach. The COSCO event was not only a network breakdown, it was…

According to 451 Research, there are several key factors behind the recent emergence of autonomous vehicles (AVs): a combination of increasing computing capabilities (Moore’s law), accessibility of data, meaningful and actionable insights through analytics of this data, and the advent of AI, machine learning and artificial neural networks. Expertise and technology in these fields have historically been outside the core competencies of traditional automotive players (OEMs, suppliers). This vacuum has attracted the likes of new and old IT hardware and software providers to find a role in the future connected car and AV. 451 says that the largest impending innovators will come from…

Ubiquitous cloud access has become more business-critical than ever and monitoring, managing and trouble-shooting have increased in complexity. SD-WAN allows organizations to seamlessly bring together diverse circuits like MPLS, DIA Internet, broadband Internet, WiFi, satellite and any other network transport with an IP address. We can already see some of the ways in which AI can optimize WANs to improve business outcomes. For example, ubiquitous networking has become a critical layer in the network landscape to ensure reliable, cost-effective and highly scalable connectivity. The challenge is in managing the ubiquitous WAN’s real-time decision making, based on network conditions, locations and…

Networking and security IT infrastructures have evolved to a level of complexity unmanageable by operators and enterprises using a conventional approach. The ongoing reliance upon legacy network hardware and disjointed WAN architectures inhibit the operational agility required by global organizations looking to digitize business services with secure, multi-cloud connectivity. The intersection of network reliability and application performance requires a more flexible, versatile network architecture with security and cloud integration at the forefront; thus, optimal WAN-path selection alone is no longer good enough in a multi-threaded threat environment. Large-scale enterprises with far-flung remote locations and highly distributed data centers are facing…

“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. Remember the 21st of October 2016? 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…
