Does your network bandwidth usage align with business goals? This white paper highlights the challenges of ensuring SaaS application access and performance. It discusses the pros and cons of popular approaches and explains how you can control, prioritize and optimize traffic so that business-critical applications have the performance users need.
There’s no doubt consumer-grade sync and share solutions are convenient, but it’s the risk they introduce to the enterprise that keeps IT leaders up at night. And it’s not without a price: unintentional data compromises cause financial hardship—nearly $2 billion, according to the harmon.ie study—and reputational damage for businesses and their customers.
Luckily, there is such a thing as “enterprise-grade” sync and share, meeting IT teams’ needs for solutions that combine corporate-level security and management capabilities with the ease-of-use employees demand.
But what really constitutes an enterprise-grade sync and share solution? To get a second glance from enterprise IT, sync and share solutions must, at a minimum, include the basic business feature sets: security, integrations, roles and permissions, audit trails, remote wipe, comprehensive APIs, real-time administration, bandwidth controls and de-duplication.

The cloud is impacting WAN architectures. IT leaders looking to use a cloud-based infrastructure and/or application services, especially high-bandwidth, real-time voice and video over Internet Protocol applications, should strategically locate communications hubs outside the enterprise data center.
Measurable performance is a key factor when selecting an Application Delivery Controller(ADC) solution for modern data centers. In this report, Tolly evaluates the performance of several Citrix NetScaler ADC models vs. that of comparable products. Learn how NetScaler fared and provided up to 480% the performance of F5.
Today’s enterprises face new requirements for their datacenter
and cloud architectures, from keeping pace cost-effectively with
fast-growing traffic to ensuring optimal application
performance no matter how quickly business needs or the
enterprise environment evolve. At the same time, IT must reduce
costs and datacenter sprawl, ensure security and uptime, and
prepare for a new generation of cloud computing initiatives.
While many Application Delivery Controller (ADC) solutions
promise to meet demanding customer needs, the reality often
falls short. Taking a closer look at the available options and how
they measure up against the criteria that matter most, it
becomes clear that NetScaler beats the competition—providing
better performance and scalability than F5 Networks, Inc.
For the first time in several years, there has been a sharp increase in denial of service (DOS) attacks. In the past, these attacks have been directed at the networks of large companies. Now we are seeing the emergence of attacks targeting smaller companies and higher layers in the computing stack. Intruders are using low-bandwidth attacks disguised as legitimate transactions to bypass firewalls and basic intrusion prevention measures. Organizations need a better way to combat and prevent these attacks, and the right ADC can provide the solution. Learn how Citrix NetScaler can help protect against DOS attacks in the report, Citrix NetScaler: A Powerful Defense Against DOS Attacks (link).
For today’s businesses, fast Internet access is more than a competitive advantage. It is an operational necessity. Changes in the way companies are working – and the tools they are using – have created the need for high-speed connections to services and individuals off-site. Across the country, in-house servers are rapidly being replaced by cloud-based infrastructure. Videoconferencing is helping businesses cut travel costs. Mobile devices – with easy links to work-related content – are enabling more employees to be more productive, from any location. All of these applications have one factor in common: they require bandwidth. And plenty of it. Download this white paper to learn more about high-speed internet connections.
New research findings, new technologies, and the evermore urgent needs for speed and cost-efficiency are converging to drive a revolution in medicine. Supporting this convergence are high-speed secure telecommunications networks, enabling unprecedented teamwork among institutions, researchers, practitioners and patients to create a new paradigm: telemedicine, the exchange of medical information via electronic communications among dispersed facilities and patients to improve patient health.

Today’s K-12 schools are hungry for bandwidth. The reason is clear: highperforming, reliable and easily expanded network services support the latest classroom innovations, including videoconferencing, 1:1 computing, distance learning and modern learning management systems. It’s no surprise then that progressive educators now see a direct link between the overall success of their school districts and access to high-capacity networks. This emerged as a clear trend in new research by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) — a commanding 98 percent of administrators and IT representatives said the future of K-12 education hinges on ubiquitous connectivity.
This white paper lays a framework for planning and implementing high-performance networks. In addition to explaining why now’s the time to plan network upgrades, this paper answers one of the fundamental questions asked by IT managers at schools everywhere: “How much network capacity will we actually need?”
The introduction of bandwidth-intensive learning applications, including video and peer-to-peer applications in teaching has fundamentally transformed the way teachers teach and students learn. The federal E-rate program has forever changed the technology landscape of school districts and libraries in the United States.
Receiving funding is not guaranteed, and following the E-rate process and procedures is critical – especially when thousands, even millions, of dollars are at stake for your district. The rewards that new, education-specific cutting edge education applications deliver to the classroom far outweigh the effort required to participate in the program. This paper briefly examines the promise of new, education-specific applications, the advanced network services that enable them, and the role of the E-rate program.

What is the secret sauce of WAN Optimization (WAN Op)? First time users are always amazed at the performance results. Download now to learn about the cool technologies behind today's leading WAN Op architecture.
Noted author Jim Metzler reports on the emergence of vWOCs, or virtual WAN Optimization Controllers. From the data center to the branch, virtualization is enabling a revolution in how WAN optimization is acquired and deployed. Whether combined with traditional physical appliances or fully virtualized, the new choices make universal network optimization a reality.
This whitepaper shows how you can finally meet your recovery objectives, provide seamless failover between multiple sites, improve remote application performance, and lower your ongoing bandwidth costs.
When faced with their EqualLogic replication not completing due to limited WAN bandwidth and consistently missing their RPO, ZLTO needed a solution. Learn how Silver Peak’s virtual appliances reduced their bandwidth used for replication by 86%.
Delivering combination of real time voice, video, and data is bandwidth intensive and requires complex network configuration to ensure the delivery of these time sensitive applications.

Distributed denial-of-service attacks may be organized by type into a taxonomy that includes network attacks (layers 3 and 4), session attacks (layers 5 and 6), application attacks (layer 7), and business logic attacks. Each type may be matched with the best F5 technology for mitigating that attack. This paper explains how taken together, the F5 BIG-IP portfolio of products provides effective anti-attack technology for each layer of the taxonomy and can also defend against specific attack tools, network reconnaissance, and low-bandwidth asymmetric attacks.
This white paper examines the DDoS threat spectrum including conventional network attacks, HTTP and SSL floods, and an emerging wave of low-bandwidth threats, plus the new threat vectors likely to target emerging service platforms.
