The Mandate to Adopt a Software Defined Branch Office
By Aruba Wireless Networks | 20/6/2018

The primary reason for the popularity of the traditional branch office WAN architecture is that until recently there hadn’t been a fundamentally new WAN technology or architecture introduced into the marketplace since the introduction of MPLS almost twenty years ago. That situation began to change a couple of years ago with the introduction of a new class of WAN solutions that takes a software-centric approach to providing WAN products and services. This new class of solutions is typically referred to as a Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN). The large and growing interest in SD-WANs was discussed in a report by Transparency Market Research. According to that report, the global SD-WAN market will expand at a 51.4% CAGR between 2017 and 2025. Rising at this rate, the market will likely become worth US$34.35 billion by 2025.

Simplifying the Branch Network By Doyle Research
By Aruba Wireless Networks | 20/6/2018

A majority of IT organizations are experiencing significant changes that impact the requirements for their distributed branch networks. Mobility, cloud-based applications, and Internet of Things (IoT) are altering traffic flows and increasing bandwidth requirements. Employees and guests expect Internet connectivity, which means that employee-facing and IoT devices need reliable, low latency access to their data and applications, and must be securely on-boarded as they interact with centralized services. IT organizations do not have the level of control they once did with traditional architectures, and now face increasing pressure to support these new initiatives even as budget and resources remain lean.

Credential Stuffing: A Security Epidemic
By F5 Networks | 14/6/2018

The world set a new record for data breaches in 2016, with more than 4.2 billion exposed records, shattering the former record of 1.1 billion in 2013. But if 2016 was bad, 2017 is shaping up to be even worse. In the first six months of 2017, there were 2,227 breaches reported, exposing over 6 billion records and putting untold numbers of accounts at risk.

Out of all these stolen records, a large majority include usernames and passwords, which are leveraged in 81 percent of hacking-related breaches according to the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report. Faced with evergrowing concerns over application and data integrity, organisations must prioritise identity protection in their security strategies. In fact, safeguarding the identity of users and managing the level of access they have to critical business applications could be the biggest security challenge organisations face in 2017.

The rise of the cloud has produced billions of new apps that hold untold amounts of confidential data.

Advanced Application Threats Require an Advanced WAF
By F5 Networks | 7/6/2018

The threat landscape is dramatically different than it was just 5 years ago. A traditional web application firewall (WAF) was once a very effective solution for mitigating application layer attacks, but now has trouble keeping up with the advanced capabilities and agility of attackers. Today, new methods are needed to effectively automate the mitigation of fast-evolving threats.
