Modern, cloud-driven technologies are profoundly changing the way we work and interact.
Today’s businesses connect more people, systems and devices than ever before. We move more sensitive data, with greater frequency, and we expect it to happen almost instantly.
With the focus on digital transformation, it is vital that organisations pay attention to the system that connect us and makes it all possible – the network.
As organisations look to transform their operations to radically reduce costs and create new services for either staff or customers, the network offers significant opportunity to streamline configuration, access management, and integrated security into a single set of policies. This approach releases the support team from mundane operations, and allows them to focus on projects, which can enhance the business, not simply keep it running.
The advent of cloud places new demands on traditional infrastructure that it’s ill-equipped to handle. Employees need to work from anywhere, at any time, securely. Some cloud applications, such as Microsoft Teams or Cisco Webex, may need the network to react quickly and provider higher priority than traditional apps, while other cloud services demand an approach to security that ensures the data is secure, irrespective of where it is.
Organisations adopting the new breed of intelligent networks are best positioned to embrace the opportunity of cloud, and the ability to move data securely, quickly, and efficiently.
A proliferation of new, sophisticated attacks bombards businesses daily, and each attack traverses the network to hit its target. World leaders, such as Cisco, now build security directly into the network fabric; using AI-enabled cloud security to monitor, analyse and perform threat detection on traffic flows, while micro-segmentation protects both users and devices from incoming threats. Wherever your people, customers and devices may go, they are safer when protection begins with secure connectivity.
The best connectivity experience depends on the right combination of experience, skill and ingenuity – and that’s why Data#3 was named by Cisco as its Global Enterprise Networking Partner of the Year 2019.
