Even as the threat of security breaches rises, the traffic flow across the network is growing. Bandwidth demands driven by web-scale applications continue to climb, necessitating a network that can elegantly scale to handle higher capacities with less operational complexity. Today’s web-scale networks require much more than high-capacity bandwidth—they need a security strategy to protect all critical data, both at-rest and in-flight, as it spans metro, regional, and long-haul distances.
