As 2017 takes shape, network administrators and security specialists face an ever-expanding slate of hacker tricks and attempted breaches — tied in part to the rapid increase of workforce mobility, the Internet of Things, network on-ramps, and connected everything.
Join Cradlepoint Chief Security Officer Kent Woodruff to explore how organizations are using software-defined, cloud-based solutions to reduce complexity and protect their most critical data.
There’s no way around it: Setting up and maintaining traditional VPNs for remote access requires extensive time, energy and resources. Configuring, managing, and troubleshooting devices and applications located at the data center in headquarters and in each end device is one of the most complex and laborious aspects of network administration — especially with increased workforce mobility and IoT.
With a next-generation Virtual Cloud Network (VCN), configuration, management, and security policies are streamlined and handled in the cloud. This enables rapid deployment, reduces operational expenses and completely integrates with your existing infrastructure.
At 9am PT / 12pm ET on March 1 2017, join Cradlepoint’s Bryan Embrey to explore how resilient, redundant, secure, and scalable VCNs leverage software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization technologies to reduce complexity, hardware, and IT man-hours.
In retail, the rapid adoption of omnichannel services, automation, digitization, IoT and mobile devices, and cloud-based applications has rendered Internet and downtime unacceptable. From helping customers to handling back-office duties, retail staff need 24/7 connectivity to do their jobs effectively.
Retail IT professionals need flexibility and numerous options for providing Internet failover, router redundancy, and business continuity in a variety of locations and circumstances.
At 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET on Feb. 15, 2017, join Cradlepoint’s Landon Reese to explore the best options for failover in retail, as enterprises look to improve the customer experience and save time, money, and man-hours.

Cradlepoint NetCloud Engine provides a streamlined process to deploy cloud-based networks in minutes to connect people, places, and things anywhere. You can make the public Internet your private network without giving up visibility, security, and control.
At 9 a.m. PST / 12 p.m. EST on Jan. 12, 2017, join Cradlepoint Global Solutions Architect Roger Billings and CFO Val Heusinkveld to watch exactly how easy it is to set up a Virtual Cloud Network in 10 minutes or less.
With the rapid growth of mobile devices, cloud-based applications, credit card purchases, and the Internet of Things in the distributed enterprise, maintaining network security is more difficult, and more important, than ever before.
Data breaches come in all shapes and sizes, and with increasing prevalence. From passwords to phishing, educating a company’s staff early and often is one of the most effective ways to mitigate cyber security risks.
To help protect customers and companies, Join Cradlepoint’s Chief Security Officer for this webinar to review and discuss some of the best practices for mitigating network security risks.
Your next WAN is software-defined, delivered as a service, and designed with security in mind for today’s connected enterprise.
Through the Cradlepoint NetCloud platform, NetCloud Engine enables IT and network teams to deploy cloud-based networks in minutes to connect people, places, and things anywhere. You can make the public Internet your private network without giving up visibility, security, and control.

Enterprises around the world are embracing cloud, mobile, and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to decrease complexity while increasing business agility, empowering their distributed workforces, and gaining operational insights. A growing amount of critical enterprise network traffic is moving off private IP networks and on to the public Internet via wired and wireless broadband. At the same time, workforces are becoming more and more geographically distributed.
The effect is that the LAN is being replaced by the WAN—people, places, and things require secure, fast and reliable connectivity no matter their location—and businesses face challenges meeting these increasingly complex demands using legacy solutions.
Cradlepoint’s NetCloud platform combines our Edge software and cloud services (Enterprise Cloud Manager) with SDN, NFV, SD-WAN and a host of other technologies to provide a converged, next-generation WAN with an embedded security perimeter that addresses this new era of “Interprise” broadband networks.

Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is deployed one of two ways: on-premises or cloud. Each deployment strategy has its pluses and minuses — with variables including features, upfront costs and total cost of ownership, existing infrastructure, and scalability.
VoIP services traverse the WAN and are subject to overall WAN bandwidth. If adequate WAN resources are not available, call quality degradation can result. That’s why more and more IT professionals are asking this question: “How would using an LTE WAN for failover or primary connectivity impact VoIP services in our network?”
Join our webinar at 9 a.m. PDT/12 p.m. EDT on Sept. 8, 2016, to learn the best practices and considerations for deploying VoIP on an LTE network.
We also will discuss:
— VoIP on an LTE network vs. VoLTE
— VoIP on LTE for failover or primary connectivity
— VoIP network conditions
— LTE vs. 3G/2G
— Best practices
— Quality of Service (QoS)
— Cradlepoint field testing
