In the clouds: SD-WAN services the way you want them

Swapping a traditional wide-area network (WAN) for a new kind of branch and remote-location network connectivity — software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) — reduces operational costs and improves resource usage as well as security.

In my last post, I described why this is true and enumerated several SD-WAN approaches, including appliances, software licensing, SD-WAN as a service, and SD-WAN managed services.

But which sort of SD-WAN capability is right for you? Approaches break down into two types: do it yourself or turn to some sort of SD-WAN service.

SD-WAN in the clouds:
Which approach is right for your clients?

Do you have clients with more than one location? Are you hearing complaints from them about uneven application performance, network management hassles, and an uptick in cyberthreats?

Chances are these clients need to upgrade their traditional wide-area network (WAN) and dedicated multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) circuits

The cloudy reasons why SD-WAN is in your future

Does your organization operate from more than one location? Do the people at your “other” sites complain about uneven application performance while your IT staff struggles with network management hassles and an uptick in cyberthreats?

Perhaps it’s time you revisit the traditional wide-area network (WAN) and dedicated multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) circuits you’ve been using to connect your remote sites to your data center and/or the cloud services you’ve deployed

Five key cybersecurity capabilities you’ll need in 2019

As I mentioned in my last post, effective cybersecurity is a cost of doing business — and staying current with cybersecurity requirements has never been more important.

Cyberthreats are evolving fast — as are the technologies that counter these threats and the regulatory environment that protects individual personal data and privacy.

Cybersecurity in 2019:
Five key capabilities your client will need

Do your clients know that 47% of smaller businesses have suffered a cyberattack in the last year — and nearly half of those experienced multiple cyberattacks? Midmarket companies fare even worse: some 53% have experienced a data breach.

Attackers now see small/midmarket businesses as soft-target conduits into their larger partner companies. If your clients haven’t been attacked yet, either they’re lucky or they haven’t yet discovered the breach.

Cybersecurity in 2019:
Not in Kansas anymore

Do you get the uneasy feeling that your company’s cybersecurity risks have increased over the last year? If so, you’re right.

Not only are cyberattack volume and sophistication increasing, attack surfaces — what’s being attacked, how, and why — are also growing. Dramatically.
