IT managers in charge of administering network services for most of today’s multi-location businesses are expected to fulfill rules and levels of authentication based on the types of network services demanded by the local offices or transnational branches. These conventional network infrastructures, more often than not, are intended for delivering services that require almost no flexibility or scalability, which in turn making deploying new services over such wide area and long distance networks a costly and time-consuming task.
Internet usage continues to rapidly expand and evolve, and with it network infrastructure is changing and evolving. The use of general-purpose processors to provide network functionality has changed the face of the networking market and dramatically reduced costs for enterprises and telecom service providers. For the most part, these general-purpose servers have kept pace with Internet application usage. Network traffic, however, has increased dramatically with new applications that have extensive data plane requirements. Traffic has multiplied to a point where specialized technology is needed to keep up.
Data breaches are usually intentional leaks of information without authorization, normally by hacking actions. Data breaches are destructive nightmares to major corporations and organizations because it severely damages not only their profitability, but also trust and reputations. Victims are usually giant corporations or organizations with huge base of users or member, which means gigantic amount of data as the target for hackers. In fact, some user or member data are highly sensitive or confidential and this will severely ruin the serviceability and reliability of the service providers.
The highly competitive business environment requires high degree of flexibility and customizations to meet diversified application demands. In today’s competitive, fragmented and diversified market, commercially off-the-shelf solutions can no longer satisfy application-oriented industries. Customization is crucial to the success of manufacturing businesses. As a global leading supplier in network appliances, Lanner has been dedicated in customizing hardware platforms for clients with high degrees of flexibility and scalability.
Network performance and sustainability for high-volume networking functions such as application delivery, firewalls, unified threat management (UTM) and WAN optimization are determined by both the maximum throughput the network hardware can achieve and the maximum number of users it can support; this is especially true for today’s network environments on which several tiers of service are made available for large number of users with varying sets of system requirements and privileges.
