Bolstering security and performance at the far reaches of a distributed enterprise

The next-generation network infrastructure of a distributed enterprise must deliver business services and applications reliably and securely to geographically dispersed workforce without limiting options, increasing risk or degrading the user experience.

Understanding the relationship between WAN optimization and remote offices

Remote offices pose special problems for the data center. Each office requires its own local servers for key applications, which then need local backups. However, since so many remote offices lack skilled IT employees, maintenance and backups are left in the hands of untrained workers, leading to serious support problems.

VoIP tools: attacks could increase threat

While Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) security may not be the highest priority for many IT security professionals or network administrators, experts are warning that the threat to VoIP communications is increasing.

Is a managed WAN-optimization service the best option?

A tech-support call starts it all. Why is my application running slow? What happened to my spreadsheet data? Is HQ using a 56K modem to handle traffic for my branch office - again? The number of calls suddenly increases, and network analysis reveals unforeseen usage spikes at a new marketing location. The dream of data center consolidation turns into a nightmare. IT managers at large companies with many branch offices or retail locations increasingly are relying on WAN optimization to address slow application performance over sagging, slow and overused networks.

How to purchase WAN and WAFS optimization products

The proliferation of IT equipment associated with remote offices is a major IT concern. Maintaining servers and applications at remote locations is no picnic and remote office backups are often problem areas for non-IT staff.

Consolidation has emerged as a way to ease these problems.
