5G for Enhanced Mobile Broadband is Here
11/25/2020 11:09:45 AM
As part of the transition to 5G, enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) for the IoT is becoming a reality. 5G cellular networks are evolving quickly with the deployment of more 5G spectrum bands, Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) in low bands, and the evolution from Non Standalone (NSA) operation to Standalone (SA) operation. All this serves to deliver high-speed data wherever people want it, but because the evolution of cellular networks is ongoing and complex, it can be hard to anticipate how these changes will affect the expected performance of a design.
Our common-sense guide to 5G for eMBB cuts through the noise and guides you through this evolution, so you know what’s here now and what’s still on the horizon.

Solving the Top 3 Privileged User Access Problems
11/17/2020 9:42:11 AM
The traditional security perimeters used by organizations are vulnerable, and fast-growing technologies like cloud, mobile and virtualization are blurring these boundaries. Cyber criminals know this and exploit any vulnerabilities to access lucrative data, such as customer identities, financial information, and personal data, especially vulnerabilities associated with privileged users. This whitepaper discusses the top 3 privileged user access challenges faced by Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and enterprises when dealing with secure remote access to critical network devices and systems for their privileged users (whether internal or external), including:
1. Remote access and management: How to achieve remote access and management that reduces the threat of a security breach without compromising productivity.
2. Time to service: How rapid, secure access can be achieved without limiting the level of service that can be delivered.
3. Ensuring compliance: How varied compliance needs such as SOX, NIST, IRS, PCI or HIPAA can be met.

Data Growth and the MSP: Best Practices for Profitably Delivering Data Protection
Quest Data Protection
10/30/2020 4:52:17 PM
Data growth is a major trend affecting organizations of all sizes, from small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to large enterprises. IDC’s Data Age 2025 Report: Digitization of the World from Edge to Core
predicts that data volumes will increase from 33 ZB in 2018 to 175 ZB by 2025. The firm also estimates that approximately half of the world’s data (49 percent) is already stored in the public cloud, and as data volumes rise over time, the amount of information stored in the cloud will continue to increase.
Managing this data growth is a top-of-mind issue for SMBs. In 2019, Techaisle surveyed small and medium sized firms to identify their top business issues, as well as pressing IT priorities and challenges. Respondents indicated that managing data growth is a top concern, outranking business continuity and data protection. The astronomical growth of information is making it difficult for all IT organizations, especially those inside SMBs, to handle data backup, protection, recovery and long-term retention. In response, many companies are turning to managed service providers (MSPs) for help.
128 Technology SASE Architecture
10/27/2020 7:05:01 PM
In its 2019 Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking report, Gartner defines SASE (secure access service edge) — pronounced “sassy” — as an emerging market that combines elements of Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) and network security into a single cloud-managed package. Gartner has labeled it “transformational”. 128 Technology has been SASE (or sassy) since Birth! 128 Technology recognized that security must be fully integrated into the network. 128 Technology Session Smart™ routers have built-in security capabilities that are inherent part of the architecture. In addition, service-based routing ensures that sessions are delivered based on identity and context to relevant parties based on real-time policies. This ensures that a modern cloud-centric digital business can provide secure access to users and devices anywhere.
Automating Firewall Virtualization is Easy
10/26/2020 1:39:47 PM
Current firewall architectures are complicated, do not scale and lock you in. That’s why many look at virtualization to solve the issue just like it did for data centers and the cloud. But to make virtualization consumable, you need a turnkey platform that offers simple, automated virtualization of hardware firewalls and zero-touch network security operations. This whitepaper will explain how MSSPs can leverage this platform to offer a new firewall-as-a-service (FWaaS) that replaces their customers’ physical firewalls and begins the journey towards a complete secure access secure edge (SASE) architecture.

Enhance Your Business Continuity Plan And Protect Your IT Facilities With Proactive Environment Monitoring From Room Alert
10/20/2020 1:24:41 PM
Business Continuity Plans are critical to protecting organizations against costly downtime and data loss. Data centers, server rooms, telecom closets and other IT facilities are particularly vulnerable to downtime caused by factors such as temperature, humidity, power loss and more. Learn why environment monitoring should be a key factor in your Business Continuity Plan, and how it can alert you to potential concerns such as high heat, water leaks, power loss and more before they cause downtime and data loss.
