By Michael Thweatt |   Nov 26, 2019

Working to keep up with the speed of business, especially on a global scale, has companies reconsidering how they operate – and digital transformation is at the top of their minds.

Digital transformation is becoming an increasingly popular course of action for enterprises trying to keep pace with emerging market trends, fluctuating customer demands, and increased competition.

Does Your Next-Generation Firewall Deliver Performance and Speed?

By Michael Thweatt |   Jul 09, 2019

Networks continue to grow in both size and complexity. Enterprises need modern security solutions that better protect their network traffic. Many organizations are retiring their traditional firewalls to implement next-generation firewalls (NGFWs). NGFWs are able to inspect traffic at a much deeper and more detailed level than their predecessors. They can also detect hidden threats in encrypted traffic. This capability is especially important as encryption technologies continue to evolve and more and more traffic is encrypted. An NGFW is a vital component of your security arsenal, but not all NGFWs are created equal. An effective firewall provides robust security through a simple management platform while meeting the speed and performance needs of your enterprise.

If you’re an IT administrator, you probably keep wondering when all this automation we’ve been promised is going to finally take place. You know, that magic automated tool that will rid ourselves of those humdrum tedious tasks that bog us down every day. Why is it that the development team is able to be agile but the server and networking teams are still bound by the same routines? Wasn’t the CLI supposed to be dead by now?
