Organizations now have a better way to protect their ONTAP application data, with NetApp’s new integration of Cloud Backup and SnapCenter.
VPNs are risky and clunky, which frustrate users and cause admin complexity. This outdated VPN – used by many organizations for routing Work from Home employees and 3rd Party traffic – is easily hackable and has become a growing favorite for cybercriminals to exploit, which, if successful, could allow them full access to your entire corporate network. This demo showcases how and where VPNs fail us and why the Appgate SDP Zero Trust Network Access platform offers a superior approach. Live Hack Topics Include: – VPN Exposed Ports vs. ZTNA Invisible Ports – VPN Lateral Attack Surface vs. ZTNA Micro-segmented Resources – VPN Scale Limitations vs. ZTNA Elasticity
5G and the applications it enables, including IoT, requires a significant upgrade and overhaul of carrier infrastructure beyond the radio networks (RAN). To support the diversity of applications, explosion in number and types of devices, capacity and scale of traffic, CSPs (communications service providers) are turning to adoption of data center innovation adapted and re-developed for telco networks.
Virtualization, software-defined controls, distributed computing technologies in the form of NFV, SDN and MEC play key roles in the new telco infrastructure. One of the key technologies is SDN, which is important to creating flexibility in the network to support 5G constructs such as network slicing. SDN’s centralized management and distributed controls over complex software-defined networks across the mobile infrastructure is also a key element in 5G scalability.
One challenge in cloud computing is dealing with the gaps between different virtual networks that were implemented separately but now must work together. Virtual network pairing is an essential technique for bridging cloud-based networks to allow resource sharing.
