Secure access service edge (SASE) is currently a popular approach to network security, but many are still uncertain about the most effective way to implement it, particularly given the limitations of SD-WAN. SASE marries network functionality with security to bring policy-driven inspections and protections to every facet of an enterprise IT environment. At the heart of
Banking software providers have delivered some of the most solid and secure WAN connectivity for decades. From the early days of dedicated T1 circuits, to MPLS, VPN and now SD-WAN, the connections between software providers and banks, including Community Banking Connections, have been at the forefront of WAN technology. They didn’t really have a choice.
When VPN came on the scene it was revolutionary. Employees working from home, or while traveling, now had remote access to corporate email and applications running in the data center. But as with most game-changing technologies, the party was great until the downfalls began to come front and center. These tunnels created a direct connection
SASE (secure access service edge) represents the convergence of networking and security into a cloud-delivered service. This architectural paradigm shift is getting both enterprises and security solution providers to re-evaluate the way that they deliver security services across every IT environment. Like with many evolving technologies, there is a lot of confusion about what is
The term “identity-based networking” refers to the concept of an end user’s identity being tied to the network services they are allowed to receive for Security and Compliance. The initial implementations of this concept can be seen in ubiquitous network services such as 802.1x. Wireless networks have been applying the basics of identity-based networking to
The Similarities between Different Networking Solutions Confused by the ‘buzz-word bingo’ in today’s WAN networking products? You should be. Every vendor from basic VPN to advanced global CDNs is rebranding across a variety of networking categories. The real secret is – when these solutions become more product than promises, there is not much difference between
