SYDNEY, Australia – 14 November 2017 – Verizon Partner Solutions (VPS), the global wholesale partner of choice, has announced availability of a Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) solution for wholesale customers. A new addition to Verizon Partner Solution’s Virtual Network Services portfolio, the SD-WAN solution is designed to help Verizon’s wholesale customers better control network operational costs and improve bandwidth efficiency, while also maintaining high levels of performance for critical applications – all without sacrificing security or data privacy.
As more companies pursue digital transformation initiatives, they are experiencing exponential growth in their network traffic. Next-generation infrastructure – such as software-defined networking - is increasingly being viewed as key to helping organizations better manage network traffic, and improve business agility so that digital transformation can successfully support their strategic business goals.
“Verizon’s SD-WAN solution essentially gives enterprises the best of both worlds – the power of the Internet and the performance and reliability of a private IP network – to help them keep up with the continued growth of network traffic,” said Eric Cevis, Verizon Partner Solutions. “Network traffic demand continues to increase due to SaaS applications, cloud migrations, video and IoT. SD WAN improves bandwidth usage and enables the network to act as a sensor to enhance delivery of applications.”
As applications are virtualized and migrated to the Cloud, SD WAN enables companies to build overlay networks, and extend security functions to Cloud centers quickly while managing performance to these applications. Verizon offers a network-agnostic method of delivering its technology, expertise and governance for SD WAN environments to benefit its global wholesale partners, helping them to deliver multi-network solutions to their customers. Key features of Verizon Partner Solution’s SD-WAN offer include:

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?
