When Barracuda first engaged with Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity in 2007, enterprises were more concerned about the unauthorized use of Skype, other P2P applications and instant messaging. Although the need for application control and awareness remains, enterprise concerns are shifting to securing enterprise applications hosted in private and public clouds, protecting east-west data center traffic and preventing unwanted traffic and malware on the corporate network.
Today all businesses battle with unprecedented competitive pressures. In order to succeed—or even survive—
they must rapidly adapt to constantly changing environments, in every industry and sector. What does this
mean for IT leaders? Transformation, on all fronts.
The very factors driving digital transformation in businesses are also pressuring IT organizations to transform.
Customer expectations have increased. Companies live and die by the applications they provide to their customers
and employees. A smartphone is the modern bank branch. The palm of your hand is replacing traditional brick-and-mortar
stores. Access without delay or interruption, 24/7, is the new normal. If they can’t get what they want, when
they want it, customers go elsewhere.
Digital transformation is reshaping the business landscape faster than at any time in history. It used to take decades to disrupt a market, but natively digital companies such as Uber and Airbnb have disrupted their industries in just half a decade. Digitization is creating new winners and losers at an unprecedented rate. Organizations that adopt a digital strategy will leapfrog the competition, while those that do not will risk becoming irrelevant within five years.
One important step in becoming a digital enterprise is becoming an agile organization—that is, having the ability to take advantage of market opportunities faster than the competition. This shift to being an agile business has now become a top initiative for IT and business leaders. However, business agility cannot be achieved without having an agile IT infrastructure to enable it. This is why businesses spent more than $12 billion on technology to make IT more agile in 2014, according to ZK Research.

Your network is more complex than ever before. Your employees are accessing any application they want, using work or personal devices.

Often times, these applications span both personal and work related usage, but the business and security risks are often ignored. Prospective employees are asking about application usage policies before accepting their new job. Adding another layer of complexity is the concern about the effectiveness of your cybersecurity posture. Is your business a target for a cyberattack Is it a question of when, as opposed to if? And are you as prepared as you could be? The complexity of your network and your security infrastructure may limit or slow your ability to respond to these and other cybersecurity challenges.

So what lessons can operators learn from the past experience with server virtualization? Beware of merely shifting costs from capital to operating expenditures. Be selective in virtualizing the right resources and functions driven by the business need, and not the technology lure.
Software-defined Networking (SDN) im WAN bietet die Möglichkeit, durch höhere Betriebseffizienz, schnellere Erstellung von Services sowie differenzierte und personalisierte Netzwerk-Services die Kosten zu senken
Gleichzeitig wurden jedoch die Betriebskosten aufgrund komplexeren und arbeitsintensiveren Prozessen in die Höhe getrieben. Teilweise konnten diese Kosten durch vermehrte Integration der Server- und Netzwerkinfrastruktur und erweiterte Funktionalität der Software eingedämmt werden
Las redes definidas por software (SDN) en la WAN permiten reducir los costes gracias al aumento de la eficacia operativa, una mayor velocidad a la hora de crear servicios, y servicios de redes diferenciados y personalizados.
Sin embargo, los costes operativos se dispararon, ya que se necesitó una serie de procesos complejos y laboriosos. Con el tiempo, estos costes se controlaron gracias a una mayor integración de los servidores y la infraestructura de la red, así como a capacidades de software más avanzadas.
Intent-based networking is the difference between a network that needs continuous attention and one that simply understands what you need and makes it happen. It’s the difference between doing thousands of tasks manually and having an automated system that helps you focus on business goals.
