As companies scramble to find the appropriate control around networking and security for cloud applications and data, the apps and data are already out at the edge, causing new security concerns. These organisations and their end users need and want consistent network and security services for enterprise applications, regardless of where the application runs, whether data center, cloud, or edge.

In the digital era, networking in software becomes the crucial application—enabling access and interoperability across hosts, domains, geographies, and organisational boundaries.

As the digital enterprise continues to evolve, the cloud, branch, and edge require a different type of network than that of the past. The right networking and security strategy for this new, hyper-connected world of distributed IT, applications, and devices is one that is unified and intrinsic.

It should be designed on cloud fundamentals, and should have the following characteristics:

  • Based in software
  • Application-centric
  • Fully automated
  • Elastic scale
