The migration process needs to address not only the network infrastructure, but also the migration of existing security services.
This white paper offers an in-depth explanation on how deploying a packet broker can successfully enable the 100Gb migration process.
With the continually growing need for faster 100Gb networks, the complexity of security threats is increasing, as well. For example: If secure north-south flows (client to server traffic) were sufficient yesterday, then today the IT department also requires secured east-west flows (server to server traffic).
Furthermore, as security threats begin to increase, enterprises face the need to deploy multiple security solutions and methods from different vendors, each of which address a different security expertise — where previously a single security tier from a single vendor was sufficient.
IT Managers who migrate their network to 100Gb face the overwhelming task of actively
managing this newer, faster, multipronged network environment. In doing so, they must
address a number of challenges.
