  • How to secure devices & data at the edge of the network

    Ever-expanding complexities at the edge of today’s WANs are leading organizations to use new tools and tactics beyond the traditional hub-and-spoke architectures of yesteryear, which largely hinged on corporate data centers and manual, in-person management.

    In this white paper, explore some of the most common security challenges faced by organizations as they adapt to the new normal, including:

    • Protecting sensitive data
    • Controlling traffic & usage
    • Detecting & minimizing network intrusions
    • And more

  • Network automation: Why change management is key

    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
