Why It Is Time To Transition To The Secure Access Service Edge

By Josh Cronin |   Jul 04, 2023

The fields of science and IT are constantly evolving. Just when we get comfortable, things change, forcing us to create new theories that drive new ways of doing things. For example, before the germ theory of disease was developed in the late 19th century, doctors thought disease was spread by miasma or “bad air.” Sounds ludicrous, but this was a reality at one time. 

There are IT practices and methodologies that appear just as outlandish today. For instance, remember the practice of backhauling all internet traffic to the corporate data center via expensive MPLS lines and VPNs? With the advent of cloud services, routing traffic to the corporate network seemed as absurd as the idea of a flat earth.

Enhance Hybrid Workplace Security: Invest In A SASE Solution

By Josh Cronin |   Feb 21, 2023

As businesses move to digital transformation, Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) has emerged as a prevailing approach to securing vast networks and diverse endpoints. However, the right implementation of SASE will depend on an organization's level of maturity and how they decide to construct their own unique architecture. To reduce complexity while enhancing speed and agility across multiple cloud systems, organizations must consider implementing a powerful SASE solution.

Why Your Enterprise Needs A Centralized SD-WAN Platform

By Victor Fabian |   Oct 11, 2022

Enterprises working toward digital transformation initiatives have realized traditional Wide Area Networks (WAN) cannot keep pace with business needs and have since moved to an SD-WAN. When SD-WAN is deployed correctly, it allows the network to adapt to shifting IT requirements. This is a low-cost way to enhance the capacity and flexibility of enterprise networks. 

Why SD-WAN Is A Powerful Platform For Enterprise-First Digital Transformation

By Victor Fabian |   Jun 07, 2022

Enterprises are currently reinventing how they operate with digital transformation. They’re capitalizing on a variety of cloud-based technologies and launching products and services to customers more quickly than ever before. As more businesses update their infrastructures, traditional enterprise networks are struggling to keep up with the changes. A recent networking global survey found that 97% of organizations will have difficulty keeping pace with the changing demands of the cloud and hybrid networks. As businesses continue to update their infrastructures, many are using software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN) to move forward in their digital transformation journey.

Modernizing Your WAN Infrastructure Requires A Secure Solution

By Michael Thweatt |   May 12, 2022

Digital transformation initiatives have fallen well within the realm of the traditional wide-area network (WAN). Complications with emerging market trends, shifting consumer demands, and increased competition are primary reasons why one enterprise after another has made the jump to software-defined WAN (SD-WAN). And for those that haven't, well, they most likely (or should) have this on their list of IT investment objectives. If not, there will be compromised business-critical services and network performance.
