Leveraging a Flexible SDN/NFV Framework for Real-Time Scaling of Network Security & Intelligent Services
Date / Time: Wednesday, May 27, 2015, 11:00 AM New York / 4:00 PM London
sponsored by
Jim Hodges, Senior Analyst, Heavy Reading

Mike O'Malley, Vice President, Carrier Strategy and Business Development, Radware

As SDN and NFV move into the commercialization phase, network operators are finalizing strategies to help them move NFV and SDN from the lab into the field. Still, a number of key questions remain, including how to achieve service agility, increase network efficiency, enhance security and lower opex. Therefore, making the correct decisions on which functions to initially virtualize commercially is crucial.

Accordingly, this webinar will address why ADC and network security virtualization represents a logical first-step approach to meet all these new demands. Specifically, in a services context we will document in detail the implementation benefits that virtualized ADCs and security appliances enable for intelligent service delivery.

In addition, the webinar will also address the security implications of implementing SDN. This includes examining the immediate benefits that real-time, software defined NetFlow- and OpenFlow-enabled advanced multi-layer detection and mitigation systems deliver compared to the box-level, non-real-time approach of legacy solutions.

Please join Radware for more on this topic at our booth (and the Intel booth) at Light Reading's Big Telecom Event in Chicago on June 9 and 10.
