  • Protecting Branch SD-WAN Internet Connections to the Cloud from Cyber-Attacks Recorded: Oct 17 2019 57 mins
    Aviv Abramovich, Head of Security Services Product Management at Check Point
    As enterprises move their branch applications to the cloud, they are adopting Software Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) to intelligently route traffic directly to the internet without passing it through the datacenter. Connecting branch offices directly to the internet significantly increases their security risk by exposing them to sophisticated multi-vector Gen V cyber-attacks. Securing SD-WAN connections to the cloud is essential in helping enterprises combat today’s advanced cyber threats.

    Check Point, a VMware technology partner, recently announced CloudGuard Connect and CloudGuard Edge to transform branch office security with cloud-delivered services including:

    · Top-rated threat prevention updated in real-time with ThreatCloud intelligence
    · Flexibility to deploy branch office security in minutes
    · A unified threat management platform that can reduce operational expense by up to 40%
    · Seamless integration with VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud
  • Top 10 Best Practices to Launch an SD-WAN uCPE with Special Guest Ekinops Recorded: Oct 16 2019 60 mins
    Marc Bouteyre, VNF Product Management at Ekinops & Kishan Ramaswamy, Product Management at VMware
    Telcos are facing multiple challenges in adopting the two main disruptive technologies that are NFV and SD-WAN. Some are inherent to their existing networks infrastructure but they also have to face the cost and complexity to integrate functions from different vendors while they need to achieve an economic model of virtualization. By integrating VMware SD-WAN as a virtual edge on Ekinops’ NFVi environment, Telcos get carrier grade quality of services on top of any combination of network underlay (LTE, MPLS, Broadband) and a robust and simple integration of those services on a branch form factor fully integrated into their back-office system (OSS/BSS).

    In this webinar, you will learn how the Ekinops and VMware integration:

    · Enables Telcos to simplify SD-WAN delivery
    · Speeds up their time to market (TTM)
    · Opens up a large market opportunity for deploying SD-WAN as a service
    . Allows customers to reap the benefits of SD-WAN and virtualization
