As pointed out by Gartner report in 2016, more than 30% of advanced cyber threats, such as DDoS, data breach, and ransomware, will aim at the most vulnerable edge networks of SME or remote business branches, where IT managements are more concerned with budget, service flexibility and manageability. To build up sustainable measures against latest emerging cyber threats, they need a flexible, on-demand, and software-defined security to achieve total zone defense for their networks. With the trends of NFV and vCPE network virtualization infrastructures, SMEs and branch offices shall employ x86 open compute vCPE platforms and SD-Security to simplify their edge security operations and deliver service agility while maintaining OPEX efficiency and elasticity.
Practical implementations of Lanner's technology in a range of environments and applications.
IoT is conventionally associated with consumer electronics and application scenarios. One of such application scenarios is a smart thermostat device used as the connected gateway for connecting you to your air conditioning system at home so that you can switch on/off and/or control interior temperature from a distance, before you arrive at your house. And if a downtime does occur, the connection can be re-established by resetting the said device.
The massive DDoS attack on Dynamic Network Service (Dyn) which caused severe network outages and disruptions to Dyn’s major clients including Twitter, Raddit, Spotify, Tumblr, and many other well-known websites. When a DDoS attack penetrates its targeted service website, users of the victimized site may experience disruptions or outages when accessing the services and functions. The crisis was regarded as a loud wake-up call on how vulnerable our cloud services and data centers are in terms of DDoS attack.
Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is a new network architecture concept that uses IT virtualization technologies to decouple network functions, such as router, firewall, network address transition (NAT), and domain name service (DNS), from proprietary hardware appliances so that they can run as software on general purpose network platform. NFV aims to help telecom service providers obtain operation agility, OPEX efficiency and scale-on-demand network services.
The increasing number of terrorist attacks to public transits has rapidly triggered the awareness of passenger safety. Public transportation like buses and trains in major cities became victimized for bombing. Mass transit operators are urging for a real-time mobile surveillance system to capture what could have been missed throughout the moving buses or subway system
