Five Ways to Boost Your IoT Security

The Internet of Things has created a new challenge for companies trying to keep their network secure. As the points of entry into a network increase, so does the attack surface, giving an attacker more opportunities to probe for vulnerability. In fact, Symantec’s 2018 Internet Security Threat Report revealed a 600 percent increase in IoT attacks between 2016 and 2017. So here are five ways your company can boost their IoT security and help defend [...]

Why Fog is Better Than Cloud Cover in IoT

The Cloud can present limitations in real-time transactions, time-critical tasks, and analytics when it comes to achieving responsive, real-time IoT. For years, administrators have been concerned that too much bandwidth is required to transmit two-way communication and data generated by sensors along a network in IoT implementations. Latency, security, and privacy within a network infrastructure can be problematic if applications rely completely on the Cloud. This is where Fog Computing comes in. It brings autonomy [...]

Why SD-WAN is a Smarter Choice

Up to 70% of enterprise budgets can be consumed by recurring WAN charges and costs when companies deploy private MPLS circuits. MPLS circuits are very reliable but are also very expensive. They are also slower, lack flexibility, and are inadequate for bandwidth-intensive applications. SD-WAN is better than a private MPLS or backup VPN. Join Mike Louis, NWN National Practice Lead and Brian Soper, NWN Director of Solution Architects as they discuss why SD-WAN is the [...]
