As we move to a software defined world, in the LAN, WAN and data centre fabric, technology is helping to deliver a step change in customer experience. This could be the move to a self-healing network or transforming the services you offer in the branch through enhanced wi-fi and advanced applications.
In this webinar, we looked at real world examples of how to deliver moments that matter to your end customer in the branch, to your network team and in your data centre. We also explored the key role of technologies such as SD-WAN, Meraki and Cisco ACI. But technology alone isn’t enough. We considered the other components which need to come together to create the perfect solution.

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.
Watch our video to discover what risks you now face and how to protect your organisation.

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.
