How to effectively manage change in your network

Your network isn’t static. It’s a dynamic, living entity that is constantly changing. But, if these changes aren’t implemented right, it can have catastrophic results.

For example, a simple configuration error in a United Airlines data center router once grounded 1,200 flights until the change could be reverted.

Find out how to manage the changes in your network environment effectively and seamlessly by learning about topics, like:

  • Change management as a database
  • Change management as oversight
  • Change management as documentation
  • And more

  • SDP/ZTNA: The death of the VPN

    87% of organizations were using a VPN in 2020 – 45% of organizations will still be using a VPN by the end of 2023.

    The reason why is that VPNs are difficult to scale, and this difficulty is exacerbated by access to hardware, load balancing, network throttling and major performance issues. So how will networks adapt to ensure employee productivity and security in the future?

    Software-defined perimeters (SDP), otherwise known as zero trust network access (ZTNA), offer a more flexible alternative to VPNs as well as more precise access and session control to applications located on-prem and in the cloud.

    In this white paper, discover how SDP/ZTNA works and why it’s the next step in network access.

  • Improve BYOD with the Bonjour Protocol

    The bring-your-own-device (BYOD) sensation has resulted in enterprise networks being bombarded by requests to use Apple products in the workplace. Unfortunately, iOS devices can be quite difficult to connect to file sharing servers, monitoring, and printers.

    To remedy the issue, Apple has released the Bonjour gateway protocol which, despite its shortcomings, can increase mobility and flexibility while helping with mobile device management techniques.

    This E-Guide from SearchNetworking.com details the Bonjour gateway and how it can help your organization. In addition, uncover key advice that will help you devise a BYOD policy that best suits your users – and your enterprise.
