This white paper explores the security implications for government, corporate, and defense technology infrastructure arising from technology supply chain management.
Despite common misconceptions that securing your technology infrastructure begins only at the point of purchase, this paper highlights the multiple points of potential security vulnerability that can be exploited earlier in the technology supply chain. To eradicate these vulnerabilities and mitigate the risk of adverse events triggered by hostile actors, organizations must secure the full technology supply chain and partner with technology vendors that can provide the same.
With technology supply chains rapidly evolving to all corners of the globe, doors continually open for unsavoury elements to find new ways to take advantage. Whether for personal gain, monetary gain, criminal activity, espionage, or military threat, black hats keep unearthing opportunities to exploit supply chain vulnerabilities.
Many organizations that have realized the benefits of server virtualization are ready to move to network virtualization. By combining hardware and software resources and functionality into a single, software-based administrative entity, these organizations can reap the benefits of greater data center agility.
In an effort to become more agile, many IT organizations have virtualized their data centre resources. However, these efforts go only so far before network complexity brings efficiencies to a halt. This whitepaper explains that to achieve greater levels of agility, IT must address the network. - Organizations today increasingly look to the data centre network for competitive differentiation - Results of the 2013 Computerworld State of the Enterprise survey suggest that IT departments are becoming adept at linking routine investments to business objectives - The 2012 Network World State of the Network study showed 34% of the respondents were ready to roll out, and 30% were already fully deployed
This insightful infographic sums up the key results from a survey of more than 200 IT decision makers across numerous industries when asked about their progress with virtualization across their infrastructure. - Efficiencies in the data centre and network continue as organisations are trying to reduce costs, simplify and improve services - There’s been an increase in the number of organisations capitalising on new IT infrastructure - Business continuity/disaster recovery is the most popular reasons behind investment into virtualization
The rapid adoption of Internet-enabled consumer devices has had a major impact on enterprise mobility strategies. This research shows that many BYOD programs are initially driven by access to email, and also indicates that organisations may be underestimating the implications for security and network architectures.

Pradeep Sindhu, Founder and CTO of Juniper Networks, explains how guided by a vision for the ultimate in simplification, Juniper Networks offers a data center better scale performance, reduced complexity and improved operational efficiences.
In conducting in-depth interviews with 10 existing customers, Forrester found that these companies, through the use of JUNOS and Juniper switches and routers, achieved a 40% reduction in operations costs for certain network operations tasks including planning and provision, deployment, and planned and unplanned network events.
