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

By Michael Wood
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…

Technology changes rapidly as new products, features, and benefits constantly flood the industry; all of which promise a brighter, better, and easier tomorrow. With so many changes and promises, one thing I’ve consistently run into in the networking industry is that many of these features and capabilities often go unused, or even more frequently are used incorrectly, so that their benefits aren’t seen. When product features and capabilities go unused, disappointing performance may occur and even lead to the misconception that the product was falsely advertised and that processes were somehow broken. I’ve been in the networking industry for about…

SD-WAN Vendor Success Criteria Vary by Lenses

Versa Networks
July 16, 2020

Several analyst firms have reported recently about the state of the SD-WAN market, and not surprisingly, the market sizing is definitely due to inclusion of both hardware and software, and in Cisco’s case, contributions from Meraki. That’s the conclusion of AvidThink analyst Roy Chua, who believes that there could be a $500 million differential between pure SD-WAN software revenue and everything else deployed in the branch including hardware, circuits and wireless access only. Given that Versa is one of the few if not only pure-play SD-WAN vendors that from a revenue recognition standpoint is software only, devising a methodology that…

Digital transformation is transcending traditional IT infrastructure, and becoming pervasive within virtually every aspect of business and our personal lives. We carry around laptops, smartphones, tablets, smart watches and other wearables. IoT devices collect data from security cameras, cars, aircraft, ships, energy systems, manufacturing plants, medical facilities, farms and ranches, and throughout our homes and business offices. Applications on all these devices collect and emit massive amounts of data. Data travel over WANs to corporate data centers, clouds, SaaS, PaaS and IaaS, and this is just the beginning. As digital transformation becomes even more pervasive, the digital ecosystem will become…

Secure SD-WAN Architecture: Genuine Multi-Tenancy

July 6, 2020

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…
