AIOPS and Network Visibility

Sponsored by: Juniper
Presented by: Jonathan Davis

The “Network Visibility Imperative” is the need to gain comprehensive insights into network infrastructure, applications, and services to identify issues, troubleshoot problems, and optimize performance. The needed visibility becomes impossible without AIOps.
In this webinar, we’ll examine how AIOps automatically collects and analyzes mammoth volumes of data from across the network to quickly pinpoint potential issues and their root causes.

Security Connecting Remote Offices and Users

Sponsored by: Palo Alto Networks
Presented by: Tashya Denose & Rob Ferrill
Moderated by: Steve Hill | Independent Analyst, Data Center Technologies, ToneCurve Technology, LLC
Panelists: Nia Luckey and Anupam Upadhyaya

Networking and security must merge when supporting remote offices and workers. The traditional approach has been to put the network in place and then overlay security in some manner. This session will discuss how treating the two separately, or merely layering on security after the fact, is not practical today. And as such, the session will discuss the move to offerings that combine networking and security, such as SASE, Secure Service Edge, and other services based on Zero Trust principles.
