We discussed the need for security as the foundation for networking in healthcare and other industries, and the development of security as a function baked into hardware, software and network applications – including the ability to detect characteristic signatures of malware even within a stream of encrypted traffic. We also talked about software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) as a type of environment that can enable improved performance for individual applications, and multi-cloud environments that can reduce latency and bridge connections between systems and organizations as needed.

Listen in to our conversation about reducing the burden on users and administrators while lowering cost and improving network security.
