Ovum: Igel's Security Enhancements for Thin Clients
Thin client vendor Igel is enhancing the security capabilities of its products, both under its own steam and in collaboration with technology partners. Ovum sees these developments as important for the next wave of thin client computing, which will be software-based – particularly if the desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) market is to take off.

With hardware-based thin client shipments in the region of 4–5 million units annually, this market is still a drop in the ocean compared to the 270 million PCs shipping each year, though the latter figure has been declining since 2011. And within the thin client market, Igel is in fourth place behind Dell and HP (each at around 1.2 million units annually) and China’s Centerm, which only sells into its home market.

However, the future for thin clients looks bright, in that the software-based segment of the market  (which some analyst houses refuse to acknowledge) is expanding, particularly for Igel. Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) technology has stimulated this growth, but the greatest promise is probably in the embryonic DaaS market, whereby enterprises will have standard images for their workforce hosted by service providers.

ESG webcast: Multi-cloud Data Protection Trends and Best Practices
Is the multi-cloud here to stay and are enterprises really adopting this strategy? ESG’s IT Spending Intentions survey shows that 81% of current public cloud infrastructure customers use multiple CSPs and 53% expect the number of unique CSPs they use to increase over the next three years.
Is the multi-cloud here to stay and are enterprises really adopting this strategy? ESG’s IT Spending Intentions survey shows that 81% of current public cloud infrastructure customers use multiple CSPs and 53% expect the number of unique CSPs they use to increase over the next three years.

The proliferation of multiple cloud providers is far from being a point-in-time statistic and it is manly driven by companies’ desire to identify the cloud provider that best fits each application and workload.

Join Edwin Yuen, ESG Senior Analyst for Data Protection and Yesica Schaaf, Senior Director, Veeam® Cloud Marketing in the discussion of Availability in multi-cloud environments to learn more about:
  • Current and upcoming trends in multi-cloud adoption, as well as considerations driving these market shifts
  • Challenges associated with increased IT complexity and multi-cloud deployments
  • How Veeam is helping its customers address multi-cloud and Data Availability: South Oregon University, Goodwill, Columbia Power & Water Systems and Movius
  • And much more!

ESG Report: Verifying Network Intent with Forward Enterprise
This ESG Technical Review documents hands-on validation of Forward Enterprise, a solution developed by Forward Networks to help organizations save time and resources when verifying that their IT networks can deliver application traffic consistently in line with network and security policies. The review examines how Forward Enterprise can reduce network downtime, ensure compliance with policies, and minimize adverse impact of configuration changes on network behavior.
ESG research recently uncovered that 66% of organizations view their IT environments as more or significantly more complex than they were two years ago. The complexity will most likely increase, since 46% of organizations anticipate their network infrastructure spending to exceed that of 2018 as they upgrade and expand their networks.

Large enterprise and service provider networks consist of multiple device types—routers, switches, firewalls, and load balancers—with proprietary operating systems (OS) and different configuration rules. As organizations support more applications and users, their networks will grow and become more complex, making it more difficult to verify and manage correctly implemented policies across the entire network. Organizations have also begun to integrate public cloud services with their on-premises networks, adding further network complexity to manage end-to-end policies.

With increasing network complexity, organizations cannot easily confirm that their networks are operating as intended when they implement network and security policies. Moreover, when considering a fix to a service-impact issue or a network update, determining how it may impact other applications negatively or introduce service-affecting issues becomes difficult. To assess adherence to policies or the impact of any network change, organizations have typically relied on disparate tools and material—network topology diagrams, device inventories, vendor-dependent management systems, command line (CLI) commands, and utilities such as “ping” and “traceroute.” The combination of these tools cannot provide a reliable and holistic assessment of network behavior efficiently.

Organizations need a vendor-agnostic solution that enables network operations to automate the verification of network implementations against intended policies and requirements, regardless of the number and types of devices, operating systems, traffic rules, and policies that exist. The solution must represent the topology of the entire network or subsets of devices (e.g., in a region) quickly and efficiently. It should verify network implementations from prior points in time, as well as proposed network changes prior to implementation. Finally, the solution must also enable organizations to quickly detect issues that affect application delivery or violate compliance requirements.
