Microsoft 365 Security Checklist
It's in the cloud so Microsoft secures your data – right? Well, not exactly. Proper security is tailored to an infrastructure's unique requirements and responds to a constantly evolving attack and threat landscape. You can't just rely on Microsoft default settings. You need to do more than just 'set it and forget'. The Microsoft 365 Security Checklist shows you all the security settings and configurations you need to know for each M365 license to properly secure your environment.

Network Element Virtualization (NEV)
The Network Element Virtualization (NEV) technology from Algoblu enables carriers to virtualize and fine-grain management of their underlying network resources, providing products and services with end-to-end service quality assurance for the individual needs of users. Carriers can provide multi-tiered application-oriented networking services and create new revenue streams over existing network infrastructures.
The Network Element Virtualization (NEV) technology from Algoblu enables carriers to virtualize and fine-grain management of their underlying network resources, providing products and services with end-to-end service quality assurance for the individual needs of users. Carriers can provide multi-tiered application-oriented networking services and create new revenue streams over existing network infrastructures.

Within this document, we describe NEV, explaining how NEV fits within the OSI network layer and how NEV’s current implementation as a programmable Multi-Processor System-on-Chip (MPSoC) further increases performance and reduces costs over classical software-only SD-WAN white-box systems.

NEV is ideal for IoT, cloud games, VR/AR broadcasting, and metaverse applications, which have higher requirements for low-latency technology. It is a shortcut to enable carriers to provide multi-tier services to meet users’ personalized requirements with guaranteed SLA and without changing the existing network infrastructure.
Avoid Costly Inter-Cloud Routing Mistakes with an Intent Check
A Google search for “unexpected AWS charges” returns hundreds of thousands of results. In addition to economic consequences, inefficient traffic routing to and from your various cloud instances and other services can also lead to bandwidth and latency issues that undermine network and app performance. By using the intent check feature in the Forward Enterprise platform, you can identify and fix inter-cloud routing mistakes across all of your cloud instances.

Automating Security for Cloud Application Provisioning
Often conducted manually, secure application provisioning can be painfully slow, essentially eradicating the benefits of cloud. Without a single source of truth and the ability to visualize all potential traffic paths, it’s nearly impossible to ensure that the intended security and connectivity policies are applied to new cloud applications. Which is why we’ve extended the secure application functionality of Forward Enterprise to the cloud.

Best Practices to Avoid Digital Workspace Performance Problems
VDI and Desktop as a Service (DaaS) virtual deployments continue to gain popularity among enterprises – more and more desktops are migrating to the cloud. As end-users increase their expectations for a great desktop experience, IT departments must rise to the challenge of delivering outstanding service and experiences while reducing the complexity and costs.

Ten Topics to Discuss with your Cloud Provider
Find the “just right” cloud for your business. For this white paper, we will focus on existing applications (vs. new application services) that require high levels of performance and security, but that also enable customers to meet specific cost expectations.
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of cloud services available to organizations. In many cases, the capabilities of the service, adjusted for cost, matter more to decision makers than the infrastructure itself. As an example, the underlying infrastructure that supports common business software such as Salesforce, Microsoft Office 365, is rarely scrutinized, as the products are trusted solely on the brand’s reputation.

Choosing the right cloud service for your organization, or for your target customer if you are a managed service provider, can be time consuming and effort intensive. For this paper, we will focus on existing applications (vs. new application services) that require high levels of performance and security, but that also enable customers to meet specific cost expectations. Topics covered include:
•    Global access and availability
•    Cloud management
•    Application performance
•    Security and compliance

Hybrid Work Report 2022: The Strategic Role of Digital Workspaces
A new HP Teradici survey finds that IT teams have a strategic role in establishing hybrid work policies.

Hybrid work has become a reality across numerous industries. However, organizations can have vastly different hybrid environments, each with their own unique set of technology requirements and implementation processes.

We surveyed IT professionals across multiple industries to learn when and how they are implementing hybrid work policies, the obstacles they’ve faced, and what they hope to achieve from going hybrid.

Examining the Effectiveness of Digital Twins in Network Modeling
A 451 Research survey examined the prevalence and effectiveness of shared data models and “digital twins” in network modeling from the perspectives of cloud, network, and security operations, examining how approaches to data sharing impacted each role and the interaction between these job functions. The survey responses illustrate the effectiveness of digital twins and indicate the relative digital maturity of each job function, showing where there is potential to improve efficiency.
