A majority of environments today are cross-platform, combining both PCs and Macs. The result has become a common IT challenge: How can you maintain Macs in a network environment with a PC-centric infrastructure and with Windows-based network services?

Craig Mathias, Principal of the Farpoint Group, explores the advent of cooperative control, an innovative new class of wireless infrastructure from Aerohive Networks. Aerohive’s cooperative control architecture gives you all of the benefits of autonomous access points and controller-based infrastructures, without the high OPEX or CAPEX associated with either approach. Cooperative control architecture represents an innovative approach to wireless LAN systems, one that incorporates a number of interesting features and corresponding benefits.
Cloud networking introduces a new way to deploy, operate, & manage distributed enterprise networks. It delivers network capabilities via a cloud infrastructure with minimal capital investment or IT resources. This paper provides details on cloud networking, the state of the cloud market & its benefits.
"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses.
But this infrastructure doesn’t have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can serve as a simple and effective security control point for end users and devices on your network. Read this white paper to learn more about how rDNS is putting your enterprise at risk, why you need a security checkpoint at this infrastructural layer, how rDNS security solutio

The purpose of this design guide is to present the requirements and considerations relevant to the transportation vertical along with design options, best practices and configuration guidelines. While this design guide is focused on Shortest Path Bridging (SPB-M) based networks, it also addresses data networking solutions applicable for this transportation vertical.
Although several modes of transport exist, this document focuses on rail (metro, heavy, light) and road transport. More specifically, this document focuses on the fixed network infrastructure underpinning the multiple systems that enable the safe and reliable operation of rail and intelligent transport systems.

The CIS Critical Security Controls (CSCs) provide 20 controls that organizations of any size can use to improve their security posture and reduce the risk of cyber threats to critical assets, data, and network infrastructure. The AlienVault USM platform, with its built-in essential security capabilities and integrated threat intelligence, can help organizations implement these controls quickly and effectively. This document describes how the AlienVault USM platform maps to each of the CIS CSCs.
Enterprise customers can take advantage of the many benefits provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to achieve business agility, cost savings, and high availability by running their SAP environments on the AWS Cloud.
Many Enterprise customers run SAP production workloads on AWS today; including those that run on NON-SAP DBs (Oracle, MS SQL, DB2) or on SAP DBs (SAP HANA, SAP ASE). To support the demand of high memory instances, AWS have disclosed their SAP HANA instance roadmap (8TB and 16TB in 2018) and just made 4TB x1e instances available. A few examples of how AWS helped SAP customers cut costs, improve performance and agility include BP reducing 1/3 of their SAP infrastructure cost, Zappos successfully migrating to SAP HANA on AWS in less than 48 hours and enabling a major Healthcare and Life Science company to run BW on HANA with 30% better performance vs. on premise.
This guide is intended for SAP customers and partners who want to learn about the benefits and options for running SAP solutions on AWS, or who want to know how to implement and operate their SAP environment effectively on AWS.
It’s important to provide effective inbound and outbound network
traffic control to distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate
requests. Effectively managing, monitoring, controlling, and
filtering network traffic are key actions that can help do so and
further enable a robust cloud security infrastructure.
