Edge computing is vital not just to the burgeoning world of real-time responsive IoT, but to enterprise network security, as these IoT systems multiply and spread. Edge computing creates a distributed infrastructure with centralized management and lights-out -- or remote -- operations built on private cloud infrastructure. Edge...

According to Nemertes' Cloud and Cybersecurity 2019-2020 Research Study, 2019 was the year the average enterprise for the first time found more than half its IT workloads running outside the data center. This ongoing shift of enterprise IT work into cloud environments -- whether SaaS,...

The ultimate end state of software-defined network security is what we at Nemertes Research call deep segmentation. The term refers to the ability to finely control what entities can see, who they communicate with and how they do this, end to end across the enterprise network. With...

There are still savings to realize with new networking approaches, even though the time has passed when an you might expect to make massive cuts in WAN spending by deploying SD-WAN and using it to facilitate a switch off MPLS and onto Internet-only connectivity. Why To...

The two fundamental questions that network and telecom managers must answer right now are these: How much should I be spending on my WAN to achieve measurable success, and what services and solutions deliver the greatest bang for the buck (in terms of quantitative success...

Our brand-spanking-new (independent, unsponsored) network research study, Next Generation Networks 2020-2021, documented a few just-pre-Covid facts about the network that surprised us. Why SD-WAN and Cloud Networking First, less than 40% of WAN traffic (on average) fits into the paradigmatic WAN traffic pattern of starting from an...
