BrandPost: The Numbers Don’t Lie: Apstra Delivers Major Savings in Data Center Operations

At Juniper Networks, we know that Juniper Apstra provides superior benefits to customers over the entire data center lifecycle, from Day 0 design and planning, to Day 1 deployment, through Day 2+ and ongoing operations. The problem? An assertion coming from a vendor sounds too salesy, even if our suspicions are right. So, we ran a detailed analysis through a third party, and it turns out, if anything, the results suggest we’ve been underselling the value Apstra can deliver. This blog is designed to walk through the findings. The conclusion? Those that aren’t shortlisting Juniper in the data center are likely leaving money – and capability – on the table.To read this article in full, please click here

BrandPost: Creating a Consistent User Experience Across the Network

By: Tom Hollingsworth, Networking Expert.Crucial to any user experience is consistency. After all, users can be fickle. They want things now. They might even want it to be fun, but more importantly, they require a consistent experience. Between increased speed or consistency, users most always pick consistency. No matter where they log in or on what device they happen to be using, especially when it comes to real-time communications experiences on an app, they want the same treatment time and time again. It’s crucial to their success.That consistent experience requirement also extends to aspects they may not see or even realize is vital to the capabilities they rely upon. Chief among them is security policy. Policy enforcement should not be predicated or determined by whether they are using a company-issued laptop inside the proverbial corporate firewall or not.To read this article in full, please click here

BrandPost: FedRAMP Helps Secure Federal and Other Networks as They Transition to Cloud

By: Dolan Sullivan, Vice President of Federal at Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company.Recently, it seems like you can’t go more than a few days without hearing about another significant cyberattack. From oil pipelines and meat producers to hospitals and city water supplies, no segment of our nation’s critical infrastructure is immune to hackers. As bad actors become more daring in their targets and more creative with their exploits, securing people, places, and things—wherever they are—has never been more urgent for Federal IT leaders.Against this backdrop of unprecedented cyberattacks on our nation, other factors are contributing to the increased need for more robust security measures and policies to protect our Federal networks. For example, telework continues out of necessity, and in some cases, staff preference. Adoption of smart controls for equipment, physical access to facilities, environmental management, and other uses of IoT, is growing. Improving cybersecurity to protect the Federal government networks is an Executive Order. And, the uptake of cloud apps and services has accelerated.To read this article in full, please click here
