Top 5 Business Transformation Trends Driving Network Transformation

May 21, 2020

The digital transformation has made the network indispensable. As your network goes, so your business goes. Everything is connected: static and mobile devices all communicate via the network. Extraordinary statistics suggest 51% of CxOs don’t know what their industry might look like in 2023; that there might be a 50% turnover in the S&P over the next five years. Agility is survival. Traditional hub & spoke networks were designed for client-server access to centralized information by a set of known, stationary, IT-controlled endpoints. Today’s business does not operate that way. The number and types of devices have exploded, they—and their…

As new applications move to the cloud, the need for more granular data and analytics follow in order to measure the rate of acceleration of SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) access. While CRM represents the largest of the SaaS markets, other segments such as digital marketing and collaboration, are both seeing a rapid shift from on-premises to the cloud, much of which can be attributed to the strong focus service providers are placing on edge-network agility in rapidly making new functionality available to customers. In a recent Gartner survey assessing the impetus for the surge in SaaS migration, over 440 SaaS strategy decision…

Secure SD-WAN Architecture Overview

Why not keep the WAN you already have? Why migrate to Secure SD-WAN? In a nutshell: to remove complexity and inefficiencies from your network operations; to use an architecture tailored specifically to address the heightened security needs and altered traffic patterns in your network. The typical legacy WAN branch office contains a tall stack of boxes: WiFi, switch, router, WAAS, security appliance. And if you already have an SD-WAN deployed, then also an SD-WAN box. A lot of boxes, consuming power and space. Tracing the path of a packet through this quagmire, fully 60% of the processing is duplicated in…

Emotet: The Silent, Pervasive Villain / The Return of Emotet: Time to Watch Out

After several weeks of quiet, especially during the Christmas holidays, the Emotet malware bot is up and running again, and it seems stronger and smarter. Several IT security firms have reported seeing phishing emails delivering Emotet via malicious Word documents and even delayed holiday e-greetings. Cyber-attackers using Emotet seem to have used this brief hiatus to improve the malware’s social engineering abilities, with almost a fourth of infected emails being sent as replies to existing email threads. Designed initially as a banking malware, the Emotet Trojan was first identified by security researchers in 2014. The malware delivery botnet spreads itself…

Versa Security Lab recently analyzed couple of malware samples which arrives on a computer through phishing emails containing documents with embedded link which eventually leads to the download of the malware.

Most of these sites are hosts to ransomware and other malware types. In this blog we are going to look at one sample which encrypts files contents and updates the…

Part 1 of a 3 part series (read part 2 and part 3) Throughout my entire career of 20+ years I predominately have been a work-from-home employee through various roles I have held. As part of #WFH the need for secure and either on-demand or constant connectivity to corporate resources is a hard requirement in order to do my job effectively. Over the last 20+ years how, where and what I need access to have changed quite dramatically. In summary a lot of these resources are now off-net [ e.g. email, SharePoint, Skype, CRM, PRM, collaboration and communication applications [conferencing…
