Next Generation: VPN vs. Virtual Cloud Network (VCN)

Presented by

Bryan Embrey, Product Marketing Manager, Cradlepoint

About this talk

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.
