Accelerating Digital Transformation with Secure SD-WAN

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…

Best Practices for the Enterprise (Part 3) Multi-tiered Architecture

November 6, 2019

Welcome to the Third installment of the Enterprise Best Practices Blog. My name is Neil Danilowicz, Principal Architect for Versa Networks. This week we will focus on why the Enterprise should require a secure multi-tiered architecture for their SD-WAN solution. So why is a secure multi-tiered architecture a requirement for Enterprise deployment of SD-WAN? Historically, Enterprises would contract with a service provider to purchase private circuits (MPLS, PIP, or dedicated TDM circuits) to provide secure private connectivity between their branches and data centers. If an Enterprise required access to the Internet or remote networks, demilitarized zones (DMZs) were established to…

Enterprises Need to Keep Edge Networks Safe

October 6, 2019

With enterprises investing heavily to transform themselves digitally, the threat environment has in many respects intensified and diversified. Enterprises pursuing a hybrid cloud or multi-cloud strategy, or relying on a software-as-a-service model to give remote workers access to critical applications, perhaps via a mobile device, will be potentially exposing themselves to new threat vectors that must be built into an already long list of security considerations for WAN edge optimization. As enterprises look for ways to accelerate their digital transformation journeys and to achieve greater business agility, they must match that by transforming their wide-area network to be more software-driven….

Hello, and welcome to the second installment of the Enterprise Best Practices Blog. My name is Neil Danilowicz, Principal Architect for Versa Networks. This week I would like to focus on Keys – their importance to SD-Wan and why an Enterprise should be concerned about the keys. As we all know, every Enterprise has both public and private information. And it is the duty of the Enterprise to protect private information, be it intellectual property (IP), financial information, customer subscription information, payment history, or other information that must be protected due to regulations (both industry standard and governmental). Protecting information…

How Sassy is your SD-WAN – Winning the Next WAN Edge Cycle

September 4, 2019

The new Gartner Networking Hype Cycle for 2019 is out (stay calm!) and there is one very clear message for network professionals implementing a SD-WAN strategy: first the good news, you’re now entering the nirvana phase of the cycle, i.e., the Slope of Enlightenment (congratulations!), which means SD-WAN is approaching a maximum period of benefits for the next 2-5 years; however, the bad news is that if you haven’t evaluated the “sassy” potential of your SD-WAN, then you may be headed for a premature derailment in the Trough of Disillusionment! When I say “sassy” I’m not referring to your teenager’s…

Welcome to my Enterprise Best Practices Blog. My name is Neil Danilowicz, and I am a Principal Architect for Versa Networks. Over the next few months, I will delve into best practices for Enterprises as they begin their journey into Software Defined Networking, especially Software Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN). Today, security is a boardroom topic and on the forefront of every large enterprise. From the recent security breaches at Yahoo, Target, and Equifax, there is broad awareness of how a slip in security can damage the brand and tarnish what took years to build. With digital transformation, embracing multi-cloud/SaaS…
