Secure remote access and infrastructure management raised to a new level

The continued exponential growth and increased complexity of IT infrastructure — M2M, Cloud Computing, Internet of Things — drives the need for smarter real-time decision-making, deeper data analysis, and more robust data storage at the network edge. The demand for always-on connectivity and resilience in the face of network failure events also continues to rise. Quick identification and remediation of connectivity issues between dispersed Internet-connected devices and remote infrastructure is critical.
