The Death of Network Hardware Appliances - and the Evolution of Cloud-Native Architectures
When organizations need to protect their on-prem networks, IT departments typically turn to old, legacy hardware boxes. These hardware boxes are expensive, hard to manage, and slow. To complicate matters further, legacy approaches to connectivity (re: MPLS) and security (re: on-prem firewalling and DDoS ‘scrubbing centers’) just don’t work for today’s distributed workforce and cloud-hosted applications.
Between cloud app adoption growth and the work-from-home mode of operation becoming part of business as usual, the Internet is mission-critical: to share data, solve challenges, and stay connected. But as the importance of the internet increases so too do the risks of cyber threats and network demands.
Watch this on-demand webinar where you will hear experts discuss the death of network hardware appliances and how cloud-native architectures can help you continue to provide secure, enterprise-class connectivity.
You can expect to learn:
- The evolution of the network layer to the cloud;
- Modern WAN architectures for on-prem and cloud-hosted workloads;
- How virtual network functions delivered as-a-service enable organizations to increase their agility and reduce overall costs.
