Enterprises are adopting hybrid multicloud architectures with applications and data assets spread across public, private and edge clouds. However, IT teams are challenged with deploying, managing, connecting and securing disparate architectures. These drastic shifts in the needs of applications and users are not addressable with traditional models of networking, including earlier generations of SDN, leading to increased pressure on CloudOps teams. In this session, you’ll learn how by reimagining connectivity from an application context, IT can solve the above challenges and enable self-service connectivity for... Learn More

As organizations accelerate adoption of cloud-native architectures using containers, Kubernetes, and IaC, traditional security approaches are no longer sufficient to address the volume of moving parts. Even a single vulnerability or misconfiguration can be replicated at scale, without clear visibility into potential exposure. Hyper-scalable approaches to security are required to address the modular, dynamic and distributed nature of changing architectures, especially with increased adoption of multi-cloud and added pressure on security teams to do more with less. This session will explore key strategies for hyper-scalable... Learn More

When enterprises first experimented with the cloud, developers using what the cloud provider made available for security was fine – it was an experiment. When enterprises started lifting and shifting apps/workloads, it was acceptable to lift-and-shift security – using old approaches but applied to the cloud (i.e., virtual appliances). But looking at cloud, re-factored or born-in-the cloud apps and workloads, all of the existing approaches become cumbersome at best and broken at worst. They miss out on cloud agility, scalability, enterprise security capabilities, and multi-cloud... Learn More

Applications and data are being modularized into microservices and moved to multiple public clouds. In some cases, they are also being distributed to the network edge. They are increasingly being consumed from multiple software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers too. With applications and microservices popping up across all domains, the network should be seen as a growing set of interconnected “nerve clusters” situated where the data is, which could be anywhere along the edge-cloud continuum.
