Are you ready for a future based on orchestration?
“We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten.” Bill Gates
It’s not the deployment of SD-WAN that is the major change in your network. Nor the move from physical to virtual devices. It’s the orchestration and service chains of networking functions that brings truly transformational change to your IT organisation.
In this webinar you’ll discover:
• how technology can transform your service beyond SD-WAN
• the importance of new programming languages on delivering these services
• and how new skills and support can make this possible.

Without a doubt, SD-WAN delivers in terms of network visibility, flexibility and scalability, but it’s essential you embrace it with your eyes wide open. Hackers can now exploit the fact that your SD-WAN devices are directly connected to the internet and your organisation may be exposed to fresh security vulnerabilities.
So how do you protect your critical assets and data from these new threat vectors?
Many enterprises simply transfer their traditional approaches to security over to the world of SD-WAN. They fail to reassess their security needs and leave themselves open to breaches such as a DDoS attack knocking out their network or a hacked SD-WAN site giving access to un-encrypted customer traffic.
Robust SD-WAN security starts with an awareness of how internet connectivity brings increased vulnerability to cyber attack. Only then can you put mitigating defenses in place.

Although the post-trade ecosystem is seen as the ‘plumbing’ of financial services, mainly hidden but crucial, its role in ensuring the industry’s health made it key to global post-crisis regulatory reforms. Firms have now had to deal with over a decade of rapid regulatory changes and the huge operational costs these incur. At the same time, they’ve also been coming to terms with the realities of shrinking margins and the need to both increase efficiencies and work towards a more sustainable business model across the board.
In this webinar, our experts discuss the key challenges facing the industry specifically focusing on data, regulation and technology and how firms are responding to these pressures and investing in technology to help drive their post-trade transformation.

The cloud offers the promise of agility, scalability and cost benefits. You can spin up space in minutes, something which used to take weeks. But networking is complex. Just because it’s in the cloud doesn’t make it easier.
In the same way you’d look for support to manage your network services, it has become just as important to find ways of managing the complexity of cloud network services.
In our webinar, we cover some of the exciting new developments in Azure networking and show you how straightforward it is to hand over the management of your cloud network services.
We give tips on:
- what is now possible with Azure networking and how to make it work for you
- other considerations, including security and your wider cloud and network services
- how to take advantage of experience-led service and commercial models for cloud networking
- our views on the future of cloud networking

In the new age of technology, customers increasingly need to deliver services on a platform defined by flexibility and agility. The future promises to enable this with a mass transformation to more attractive, hardware-free, network-solutions.
We’ve already witnessed the arrival of Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) — moving away from the necessity for box connectivity and towards an array of virtualised services across a software-defined network. But when the global NFV/SDN market is set to grow at a CAGR of 25 per cent between 2018 and 2023 , how can we expect the network evolution to continue into the years ahead?
With the emergence of IoT, the growth of 5G capabilities and the unbounded possibilities of edge computing, the future of the virtualisation marketplace becomes a huge and exciting unknown. How can businesses cater for such disruptive and expansive transformation?
Watch our video to discover how our experts view the future of virtualisation.

We’re seeing lots of exciting developments in the areas of virtualisation, orchestration, service chaining and APIs, and the global NFV/SDN market is forecast to grow 25 per cent between 2018 and 2023.*
Many organisations believe virtualisation will offer advantages in agility, flexibility and control, but still view it as an emerging technology with inherent risks and uncertainty. They want to know what the real potential and indeed the limitations of the technology are.
In this video, our experts address some of the following major concerns regarding VNFs:
•What are you trying to achieve by virtualising network functions?
•What are the key things you need to consider?
•What are the common misconceptions in the market about virtualisation?
•What’s BT’s approach?
•What are the benefits of a ‘bring your own’ VNF option?
•How is the virtualisation market going to evolve?

Malware is today’s fastest growing attack vector. The AV-Test Institute, an independent IT security research institute, has identified over 865 million malware programs in existence. And they claim to register over 350,000 new malicious programs and potentially unwanted applications per day.
Every network has DNS servers and attackers seeking information from behind your organisations’ firewalls are increasingly using DNS as a backdoor into corporate networks. This represents a real and growing threat that you can’t ignore.
In this webinar, we have focused on:
•How DNS security practices can help you improve you overall network security
•The DNS firewall and the early detection of malware-infested devices
•Alternative DNS security measures you can put in place
