SD-WAN vs. MPLS: Why SD-WAN is a Better Choice in 2019
One of the most common questions network security architects and CISOs ask as they consider their WAN architecture is: “Should I choose SD-WAN over MPLS?” Rightly so. The decision to switch to SD-WAN has significant implications for businesses. The short answer is that SD-WAN offers better visibility, availability, enhanced performance, and more freedom of action. It’s why the industry has seen interest in SD-WAN rising over the past few years.
Another issue influencing that rise in interest is flexibility. MPLS connections tend to be rigid, fixed connections that can’t easily adapt to the sort of interconnectivity between branch offices that today’s dynamic networks require. They also don’t provide support for things like application recognition or sophisticated bandwidth management for latency-sensitive applicationsRead more
The State of Operational Technology & Cybersecurity
Operational technology (OT) refers to the hardware and software used to run industrial control systems (ICS), such as SCADA, that serve as the foundation of various areas of critical infrastructure. This includes industries that are essential to public safety and well-being, including power plants, manufacturing, water utilities, healthcare, transit, and more.
OT differs from traditional IT systems due to the processes and systems that must be incorporated to effectively manage production and resource development systems, including engines, valves, sensors, and even robotics, that are common to critical infrastructure environments but may be absent from traditional IT stacks.Read the article
