New Cloud Networking Solutions Provide the Best of Both Worlds

As enterprises continue to migrate applications to cloud based environments, the Internet connection that provides access can be a cause for concern, especially when it comes to performance and security.

Cloud networking can provide the best of both worlds: performance and network security of your MPLS virtual private network (VPN) coupled with the speed, agility and powerful capabilities.  This white paper details how new cloud networking can provide your enterprise with a wealth of benefits, including:

  • Dynamic bandwidth flexing
  • Management simplicity
  • And more

These are also closely related to: "Keep Your Enemies Closer - Get Proactive about Security"

  • The impact of cloud on enterprise applications

    As the enterprise IT environment becomes increasingly hybrid, how do you ensure that your data is secure as it moves between on-prem cloud and hosted cloud?

    How do you ensure that the cloud-based application is accessible to users when and where they need it?

    This white paper evaluates the impact of cloud on various enterprise applications; which is, in turn, driving the demand for secure private network connectivity to cloud. Also explained are the business benefits of deploying an integrated MPLS VPN and cloud solution.

  • How to meet your agile hybrid cloud initiative

    Delivering the agility needed to keep pace with change, and providing workers with 24/7 access to the tools they need are now critical business priorities. For many, the cloud is a gateway to these abilities, but with a growing number of devices and access points to your network, security can be a real concern—unless you have the right strategy.

    Listen to this on-demand webinar to get expert insights from IDC analyst Courtney Munroe and Amy Machi from AT&T. They’ll be discussing how you can build a hybrid cloud that provides the agility, flexibility, and low costs you want, alongside the security and control that you need. 

    In just one hour you’ll learn how you can:

    • Build a hybrid infrastructure that provides the flexibility, scalability and cost-efficiency you need
    • Empower your mobile workforce with anytime, anywhere access to vital information and services
    • Gain complete control of a highly secure, optimized, hybrid cloud infrastructure
