March’s Newsletter: The Whiskey’s On Us!

By March 29, 2019September 30th, 2019Newsletter

Famed humorist Mark Twain said, “Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.” That’s why at our next event, we’re pairing a singular selection of whiskeys with the single-most impactful development happening in networking—SD-WAN. It’s a “talk and tasting,” with much more emphasis on the latter, I promise.

There may be no such thing as too much whiskey; however, traditional networking, not designed for today’s cloud-powered digital enterprises, is proving just that: too complex, too expensive, too unreliable. We’ll discuss how SD-WAN delivers a seamless experience between users, wherever they are, and applications, however they’re powered. And that’s something to toast about!

Alphabet’s Chronicle Startup Finally Launches

It’s like Google Photos but for business’ network security, says Stephen Gillett, Chronicle’s CEO, about their new product Backstory. Thomas Brewster, cyber security columnist at Forbes, writes: “In a demo for Forbes the product certainly didn’t look like Google Photos. It looks more like Google Analytics, with interactive graphs and timelines that customers can dive into to investigate any potential anomaly. It’s similarly slick and easy to navigate, even for relative neophytes.”
