  • Mobile Access Revolution: The End of Slow VPN Recorded: Nov 15 2017 57 mins
    Ofir Agasi
    User complaints about slow VPN access have been with us forever. Mobile users struggle to gain global access to business applications using legacy mobile VPN clients. They rely on the slow public internet, with its convoluted global routing and high packet loss.

    Traditional VPN architectures are also incompatible with cloud datacenters in services, such as Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure, and cloud applications, such as Office 365. The need to force all traffic through a physical chokepoint, a datacenter firewall, impacts performance and the user experience. Alternatively, directly connecting to the cloud bypasses corporate network security, leading to no visibility and control.

    Join Adrian Dunne, global IT director at AdRoll, a leading ad tech company, and Ofir Agasi, director of product marketing at Cato Networks for a success story deep dive:

    How legacy VPN architecture is impacted by the globalization of the workforce and the migration to the cloud

    How Cato’s secure, cloud-based SD-WAN accelerates remote access to physical and cloud datacenters from anywhere in the world, with full visibility and control
  • Delivering on the 6 promises of SD-WAN Recorded: Oct 24 2017 38 mins
    Yishay Yovel
    SD-WAN promises to make your network simple, agile, secure, optimized, global, and affordable. As you consider your options you may be looking to your legacy network service provider to “bundle” SD-WAN with the current service.

    Ask yourself:

    How agile and simple will your SD-WAN be if it works like the existing WAN services provided by legacy service providers? Will it be self-service or do you still need to open a ticket for every move, add, and change?
    How will your security evolve to leverage direct Internet access at a branch? Can your service provider deliver cost-effective, easy-to-manage, network security anywhere you operate?
    How will you connect remote and international locations into the SD-WAN? Will you still need to use expensive MPLS to guarantee latency and packet loss?

    We want to share with you a vision for SD-WAN that was built to deliver on the 6 promises of SD-WAN.

    Join Yishay Yovel, Vice President of Marketing for Cato Networks, to learn:

    What are the challenges in realizing the transformative impact of SD-WAN on your network.
