Network Security: The Safety Net in the Digital World
Every business or organization has spent a lot of time and energy building its network infrastructure. The right resources have taken countless hours to establish, ensuring that their network offers connectivity, operation, management, and communication. Their complex hardware, software, service architecture, and strategies are all working for optimum and dependable use.

Setting up a security strategy for your network requires ongoing, consistent work. Therefore, the first step in implementing a security technique is to do so. The underlying architecture of your network should consider a range of implementation, upkeep, and continuous active procedures.

Network infrastructure security requires a comprehensive strategy that includes best practices and continuing procedures to guarantee that the underlying infrastructure is always safe. A company's choice of security measures is determined by:
  • Appropriate legal requirements
  • Rules unique to the industry
  • The specific network and security needs

Security for network infrastructure has numerous significant advantages. For example, a business or institution can cut expenses, boost output, secure internal communications, and guarantee the security of sensitive data.

Hardware, software, and services are vital, but they could all have flaws that unintentional or intentional acts could take advantage of. Security for network infrastructure is intended to provide sophisticated, comprehensive resources for defense against internal and external threats. Infrastructures are susceptible to assaults like denial-of-service, ransomware, spam, and illegal access.

Implementing and maintaining a workable security plan for your network architecture can be challenging and time-consuming. Experts can help with this crucial and continuous process. A robust infrastructure lowers operational costs, boosts output, and protects sensitive data from hackers. While no security measure will be able to prevent all attack attempts, network infrastructure security can help you lessen the effects of a cyberattack and guarantee that your business is back up and running as soon as feasible.

A new era of automation with Cisco ACI and the Citrix ADC Manager app

Article | August 8, 2022

Since it was first available, Citrix has worked with Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) to integrate Citrix ADC with the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC). As a valued technology partner, Citrix has a device package — a software module — that enables users to configure the Citrix ADC directly from a Cisco APIC. This setup has run in many customer production environments over the years. Let’s consider one of those customers — Jim. He was the first to deploy the integrated solution in his data center. The solution gave him the automation he needed and a single view to configure, deploy, and manage applications. However, his application admins preferred to use the Citrix ADC user interface to manage L4-L7 services.

We Need to Talk About ‘Cloud Neutrality’

Article | July 19, 2022

We spent a lot of years talking about net neutrality the idea that the companies that provide access to the internet shouldn’t unfairly block, slow down, or otherwise interfere with traffic even if that traffic competes with their services. But there’s an even bigger issue brewing, and it’s time to start talking about it: cloud neutrality. “While its name sounds soft and fluffy,” Microsoft president and general counsel Brad Smith and coauthor Carol Ann Browne write in their recent book, Tools and Weapons: The Promise and the Peril of the Digital Age, “in truth the cloud is a fortress.” Their introduction describes the modern marvel of the data center: a 2 million-square-foot, climate-controlled facility made up of colossal electrical generators, diesel fuel tanks, battery arrays, and bulletproof doors

Flux Creates a Bridge Between Web2 and Web3 with OVHcloud Partnership

Flux | December 21, 2022

Flux, the frontrunner in building decentralized infrastructure to power Web3 development, today announced a partnership with OVHcloud, the European cloud leader, to expand its edge cloud solution options. This partnership will enable each company to expand its reach into previously untapped markets - Web3 for OVHcloud and Web2 for Flux. Through this new partnership, Flux is continuing to bridge the gap between Web2.0 and Web3.0 infrastructure so they can iterate tech together and build a better future for all. Working with OVHcloud and their robust presence worldwide, Flux can get more nodes on the network and increase computational capacity. "Our team at Flux is not maximalist, we believe working with Web2 and Web3 will benefit users of both platforms. OVHcloud is trusted in the Web2 space and is forward-thinking about how to build a trusted digital environment in tandem, much like the development of on-prem and cloud services. They will provide the suitable infrastructure for us to grow a truly decentralized internet," said Flux Co-Founder, Daniel Keller. "We will use OVHcloud servers to help us support our Titan Node staking platform. OVHcloud servers will be used to deploy FluxNodes knowing that they are of robust and enterprise quality." The Flux Cloud has seen a surge in adoption over the past year, with an increase of over 10,000% in network usage to date. More and more companies outside of the crypto space are noticing the advantages the Flux Cloud offers and want to get their feet wet in Web3. "The promise of decentralized infrastructure requires security, high bandwidth and fast provisioning in a cost-effective overall package, which is exactly what OVHcloud is providing. Our global footprint of 33 data centers, including 8 in Canada and 18 in Europe, is a key benefit when handling a growing number of nodes worldwide. On top of performance and scalability, Flux and their users can also count on our trusted and sustainable cloud infrastructure, with a proven track record in energy efficiency and operational sovereignty."
