Businesses in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region manage many disparate security tools, frequently without a centralized information management platform. They also suffer a deluge of threat alerts, although only a small percentage of these require further investigation.
"Enterprises throughout the world are rapidly digitizing their operations and adopting a multicloud environment. Unfortunately, legacy WAN architecture models often do not provide the scale, flexibility or agility required to support this transition. Enter SD-WAN.
No single platform will be able to deliver every piece in the jigsaw for every type of enterprise and every application-specific set of requirements. The key is to select vendor partners whose platforms are sufficiently open, modular and comprehensive in their functionality and components that they will be able to adapt to enterprises’ increasingly varied, flexible and exacting networking and compute requirements going forward.
Only by doing so will they secure the ability to stay ahead in a multicloud future."
"SD-WAN largely exists today to support two key enterprise transformations: multicloud and the software-defined branch (SD-Branch).
Multicloud has changed the center of gravity for enterprise applications, and with that, has changed traffic patterns too. No longer does traffic need to flow to enterprise data center sites or central internet peering points and breakouts. That’s because most traffic from users and devices in the enterprise campus and branch today goes to cloud-based applications scattered across a host of clouds.
It’s neither economical nor efficient to haul traffic over WAN-dedicated links to a central enterprise site. So to optimize the cost and performance of multicloud-bound traffic, modern WAN edge routers, often called customer premises equipment (CPE), are now equipped with hybrid WAN links and routing. Hybrid WAN interfaces may include WAN provider-dedicated links such as MPLS, as well as direct internet links over xDSL, broadband and 4G/LTE wireless."
"This Ovum white paper is sponsored by Juniper Networks. It reveals that organisations need to update and upgrade their cybersecurity postures to defend themselves against today's threats.
More than 80% of organisations in Asia are not protected against today's threats. Many of them depend on security investments made years ago, which cannot defend against new and emerging threats. The arrival of new technologies including cloud computing, the Internet of Things, mobility, bring your own device (BYOD), and social media have massively increased attack surfaces and expanded the threat landscape.
Over the past two years, there has been a global infestation of ransomware attacks, which have wrought destruction across a growing number of businesses. Crypto-jacking, attacks on critical infrastructure, and data exfiltration are now commonly affecting businesses and consumers alike. The financial impact of these attacks is increasing rapidly and has already cost some organisations hundreds o
In our 40-criteria evaluation of data center hardware platforms for software-defined networking (SDN), we identified the nine most significant players — Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, Arista Networks, Extreme Networks (which recently acquired Brocade Communications System’s data center networking business), Cisco Systems, Cumulus Networks, Dell, Huawei, Juniper Networks, and Pluribus Networks — and researched, analyzed, and scored them. This report shows how each provider measures up and helps infrastructure and operations professionals (I&O) make the right choice.

Business leaders are eager to leverage new technologies, and IT leaders can't afford to fall behind. Hybrid IT environments take advantage of private and public clouds but need enhanced security, automation, orchestration, and agility.
The role of IT is changing from a traditional focus on cost-efficient enablement to a more strategic contribution. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), while important, is being surpassed by a growing focus on automation and orchestration that is needed to fulfill enterprise demands for security, agility, and innovation. The cloud-grade enterprise network – spanning the campus, data center, and branch – must be able to respond to rapid changes in business, growing reliance on hybrid cloud architectures, and the needs of users and customers.
PwC surveyed 235 IT leaders and interviewed another 35 from large, medium, and small enterprises to understand the buying decisions of IT leaders, across a wide variety of networking components (i.e., switches, SDN, and infrastructure monitoring solutions) within the data center. This report highlights the survey and interview insights to help Enterprise IT leaders understand the trends and implications of multi cloud environments.
As IT becomes the cloud, and ever more central to business success, projects to transform the IT systems, and more specifically the data center, have become strategic and a competitive differentiator. A crucial piece of the data center transformation puzzle, and one which is too often left until the end, is the network. As the central nervous system of the data center, its transformation must be an integral part of the entire data center transformation project.

Supporting multiple internal clients and all of their requirements for testing and production networks in more than 1,000 cities around the world—these are the unrelenting challenges for the 12 brands that comprise eBay Classifieds Group. Activating new platforms and features can take a lot of time; with the Juniper solution, turnaround time has been reduced to a few hours—sometimes less—which helps eBay Classifieds turn innovation into a real competitive advantage every single day.
The broad adoption of the next generation of cloud, mobile, M2M, and big data applications is having profound impacts on IT and network infrastructures. Compared to traditional applications, these applications have much shorter life cycles. You must be able to spin them up, spin them down, and grow and shrink them on demand. Furthermore, you must be able to move these application workloads within a data center or across geographically distributed data centers, resulting in increased management complexities.
The primary purpose of containerized applications is to improve the effectiveness of software teams, making it easier for people to work together while lowering the communications overhead. In large enterprises, applications such as ERP or CRM software suites often begin as simple projects, but as time passes, they quickly become clunky and inefficient, with a monolithic code base that slows progress for development teams.
My name is Jonathan McCaffrey and I work on the infrastructure team here at Riot. This is the first post in a series where we’ll go deep on how we deploy and operate backend features around the globe. Before we dive into the technical details, it’s important to understand how Rioters think about feature development. Player value is paramount at Riot, and development teams often work directly with the player community to inform features and improvements. In order to provide the best possible player experience, we need to move fast and maintain the ability to rapidly change plans based upon feedback. The infrastructure team’s mission is to pave the way for our developers to do just that - the more we empower Riot teams, the faster features can be shipped to players to enjoy.
Hey all, this is David Press and Doug Lardo, two engineers working on improving the data center networking that enables online services at Riot. This article is the third part in a series on exactly that topic, which begins with an overview from Jonathan of a platform we called rCluster. This time we’ll be discussing our approach to Software Defined Networking (SDN), how we integrate SDN with Docker, and the new infrastructure paradigms that this combination has unlocked for us. If you’re curious about how SDN can transform infrastructure, how to empower developers to obtain and secure networking resources via an API, or how to get out of purchasing larger and larger specialized networking appliances, this article is for you.
