With an ever-increasing amount of enterprise traffic driven by Public Cloud SaaS applications, security has never been more complex. Direct access of applications over the internet, while inexpensive, does not provide Enterprise-grade performance and simultaneously leaves the network susceptible to attacks. Furthermore, the traditional approach to branch connectivity involves a convoluted backhaul of traffic to a centralized firewall located in the corporate HQ or Data Center before accessing the internet.
Why does it need to be this complicated? The short answer… it doesn’t.
Join this webinar for an overview — and a deep dive — of an integrated approach to wide area networking that combines best-of-breed security and SD-WAN solutions. Experts from Palo Alto Networks and VeloCloud, now part of VMware, will discuss next generation Enterprise WAN and outline an approach that makes it simple to assure the performance and security of applications, dramatically simplify deployments with various options, and cut costs.
Huge demand for cloud services means huge demand for wide area network (WAN) connectivity, security, and bandwidth. It has also changed enterprise network architectures and created new challenges for Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and IT managers in charge of building networks and purchasing bandwidth for their company. The need for fast, secure access to cloud applications, demand for services and app agility, and the desire to leverage Internet connectivity is boosting demand for software-defined WAN (SD-WAN), which has more flexibility and better economics than traditional WANs.
Tune in as Futuriom Principal Analyst R. Scott Raynovich recaps the findings of its recent SD-WAN Growth Outlook, detailing what’s driving fast adoption for SD-WAN technologies.
In this webinar we will cover how the demands to deliver higher quality of services, in less time and with lower costs to all locations in the network are pervasive in the healthcare industry. We will discuss how organizations are responding by deploying new applications (on-prem and cloud based), innovative technologies that require connectivity and the need for agility as organizations grow organically or inorganically.
We will also discuss some of the challenges that often hold back this innovation and patient care when trying to connect to applications located in centralized data centers or cloud locations, especially from urgent care centers or satellite offices in rural locations.
Lastly, we will review how SD-WAN solutions can provide requisite connectivity to unlock innovation, increase agility and productivity and improve customer care/experience to even the more remote locations. This will include sharing examples of organizations that have transitioned to SD-WAN solutions and achieved real benefits.
The increasing WAN demands of branch offices, vast proliferation of devices, constant need for wireless network uptime, together with a desire to keep costs low has left IT with a simple charge – accomplish more with less. To address this, IT must shift from reactive to proactive, from network-centric to user-centric, and from manual to automated.
Artificial intelligence (AI) has provided a clear path forward to solve for these challenges and deliver automation to the IT admin. Mist Systems has partnered with VeloCloud, now part of VMware to bring WLAN analytics, AI, and intelligent troubleshooting to NSX SD-WAN.
Join us for a joint webinar where the experts from Mist and NSX SD-WAN showcase the power of LAN and WAN integration to give customers unprecedented visibility into their LAN and WAN environments—from the branch to the cloud, and everywhere in between.
Networking is in a constant state of change, but the with the advent of cloud and virtualization, the current evolution is altering the way we’ve traditionally understood it. The Virtual Cloud Network is about virtualization, connecting data centers and branches and cloud to each other in a seamless and flexible manner that supports this evolution for the next several decades. The lynchpin to this new architecture is SD-WAN, with its pervasive, scalable, and adaptable framework.
In this webinar, Zeus Kerravala of ZK Research, discusses how SD-WAN is transforming networking and enabling the adoption of Virtual Cloud Network to occur.
The SD-WAN market has been flooded with a range of vendors offering varying types of SD-WAN solutions. While having differing types of solutions provided by numerous suppliers is potentially beneficial, it also creates confusion that complicates the task of evaluating alternative SD-WAN solutions.
Join us as Jim Metzler, analyst, researcher and founder at Ashton, Metzler & Associates, cuts through the confusion in the market by identifying seven key questions that network organizations should ask themselves as part of evaluating SD-WAN solutions.
In today’s world, undisrupted network connectivity is critical to ensuring business continuity. As the adoption of virtual instances and cloud migration accelerates, dependence on high quality, high speed, high bandwidth connections becomes a necessity. Outages have far reaching implications and can be detrimental to a business as the networks of yesterday are ill-prepared for the business of today and the future. SD-WAN is changing this scenario. In this webinar, Myron Steves discusses how its implementation of SD-WAN transformed their entire network and prepares them for future growth.

SD-WAN is now approaching mainstream adoption, allowing for the collection of enough data to better understand the development of its commercial case. With numerous SD-WAN implementations and projects under their collective belts, Coevolve and VeloCloud, now part of VMware, will share examples of the common elements and best practices that lead to a successful SD-WAN case.
The team will share:
* The key elements of a SD-WAN business case
* How the SD-WAN business case varies from previous WAN reviews
* The side benefits to the headline commercial gains
* The areas of uncertainty requiring extra analysis
Join us for this interesting discussion on taking the next steps with your enterprise SD-WAN business case!
Adopting an SD-WAN solution is the best option that network organizations have to respond to a range of requirements such as lowering cost, increasing availability and providing high quality user experiences. However, network organizations are also under pressure to deliver best-of-breed security and in virtually all instances, adopting an SD-WAN solution results in implementing Direct Internet Access (DIA) which is challenging to secure using security appliances.
Join Dr. Jim Metzler, a principle analyst at Ashton, Metzler and Associates, as he discusses the ways organizations can improve their security posture while taking advantage of the benefits offered by SD-WAN and embracing the advantages of cloud-enabling technologies. Industry experts Dhawal Sharma and Tony Banuelos will join Dr. Metzler to share case studies and deployment best practices of implementing a secure SD-WAN solution.

The digital transformation is here, affecting business everywhere and requiring a retooling of legacy solutions. Networking needs to keep up but it relies on an architecture that has been in place for over three decades and that was not built to support the dramatic change.
To keep pace, networks are undergoing a massive overhaul, a lot of the momentum spurred by trends like IoT and enabling technologies like SD-WAN. Included in the overhaul is rethinking branch routers by separating routing capabilities from the physical box.
In this webinar, Zeus Kerravala of ZK Research takes a deep dive into how SD-WAN is ushering in an era of a routerless branch office.
Healthcare is strictly regulated and fraught with laws that seek to protect the patient as well as the healthcare provider. In today's modern world, technology plays a huge part in the ability to serve patients but must be able to consistently adhere to current industry regulations and flexible enough to accommodate its evolution.
In this webinar, VeloCloud takes a look at how SD-WAN plays a key role in ensuring that providers are able to deliver care through:
* Segmenting traffic such as relevant patient records or internet traffic
* Ensuring constant network uptime for non-disruptive access to patient records
* Shift to cloud storage of health records requires constant network uptime and connectivity
* Case studies: specific uses by healthcare customers
