What is cloud enabled networking?
At a basic level, cloud computing refers to the delivery of software infrastructure or storage via the Internet in real-time and can be accessed by any device with Internet capability at anytime and anywhere. Cloud Enabled Networking (CEN) moves network device management and aspects of control into the cloud, but keeps connectivity and packet-mode functions like routing, switching and security services local and often in hardware. CEN provides companies a centralized mode for ongoing management while allowing for increased visibility and scale.
What can CEN mean for your business?
CEN introduces a new way to deploy, operate, and manage distributed enterprise networks. It delivers enterprise-grade network capabilities via a cloud infrastructure that requires minimal capital investment in additional appliances or IT resources. These capabilities include Layer 7 Visibility, content filtering, WAN optimization, mobile device management and many more. Companies will see faster deployments, increased uptime, lower costs, improved visibility and to the surprise of many – enhanced security. Our CEN partners have stringent security policies and have a vested interest in protecting their customers’ data.
