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…

SD-WAN has many capabilities that address the challenges associated with complex network edge infrastructure. Specifically, central configuration and management, zero-touch branch deployment, and automatic monitoring and path selection. SD-WAN’s ability to optimize pathways for different traffic types is a key advantage, which benefits IT with greater efficiencies, and unprecedented WAN flexibility, availability, reliability and performance. Today’s advanced cloud-managed SD-WAN solutions give enterprises the ability to dynamically connect branch offices, on-premises data centers, public/private cloud and SaaS, on a global scale. Removed are the carrier dependencies and resource restrictions that used to limit the way enterprises consume applications. Leveraging multiple links…

NSS Labs recently conducted its 2019 security-enabled SD-WAN 2.0 group test. Versa is one of only two SD-WAN vendors, out of 10 tested, that received the “Recommended” rating. The test findings accentuated Versa Networks’ ability to deliver an exceptional user experience and low total cost of ownership with security enabled. Leveraging unbiased data to establish verifiable vendor differentiation is critical to the NSS Labs test criteria. Within the crowded SD-WAN vendor landscape, to affirm their vendor selection, customers put a premium on real-world and impartial testing, based on empirical evidence. NSS Labs structured the security-enabled SD-WAN test according to three…

When networks become steeped in complexity, as they are with legacy WANs, the last thing companies need is more manual processes. Tedious and monotonous configurations, and the lifecycle management of many single-function devices, are time-consuming and costly. This burden not only adds potential risk due to human error, but complicates network operations, managing bandwidth, local breakouts, QoS policies and deployment timeframes. These factors, among others, are driving the need for network virtualization, automation and software that manages network infrastructure based on business policies to accommodate digital transformation initiatives. An effective way to simplify tedious network configuration tasks and avoid unnecessary…

May 2, 2019

A fundamental transformation is occurring with the management and control of applications, as network edges become software-defined, which goes far beyond today’s destination-based routing. Significant advantages can be achieved using cloud-native SD-WANs to bring greater levels of application intelligence to business connectivity. Application-aware routing understands the paths applications need to take and provides greater management and control to deliver a quality user experience. Rather than focusing on just the network destination, and the complexities of their underpinnings, the emphasis is placed upon the applicationexperience need. Application-aware routing supports the business intent and context of how applications are used and need…

According to several industry surveys, it takes the typical enterprise over 200 days to discover a security breach, such as undisclosed web vulnerabilities or spearfishing for email credentials, according to the 2018 Cost of a Data Breach Study: Global Overview from IBM Security and Ponemon Institute. The study calculated that the global average cost of a data breach is $3.86 million, up 6.4% from last year. The average cost, globally, for each lost or stolen record containing sensitive and confidential information is also up from last year, landing at $148 per record or a 4.8% increase from 2017.

March 19, 2019

Multi-cloud is the next phase of the hybrid cloud. It offers a redundancy model that relies on multiple cloud providers to host applications in a single heterogeneous architecture. Today’s organizations need resilient architectures that can withstand failure of a single cloud. Cloud services require workload continuity with redundancy between clouds or the need to enhance the hybrid cloud experience. For example, even though organizations still run a vase majority of on-premise applications but use S3 storage in Amazon Web Services (AWS). Therefore, a single cloud is insufficient for resilience, regional availability, performance and data sovereignty. To facilitate cloud multi-tasking, IaaS…

If the Internet is a network of networks, IoT is the ecosystem of everything network-connected. IoT encompasses the dynamic interaction between devices, sensors, actuators, applications, data, storage and networks. There are many reasons why IoT is exploding. One of the biggest factors is digital transformation, which has become widespread among virtually all enterprises and service providers. A key driver of digital transformation is its ability to optimize the customer experience, capture data for business intelligence, and make informed decisions from data analysis. IoT is a critical enabler for these drivers, whether it’s software that monitors the customer experience in retail,…
