The Death of Network Hardware Appliances – Why the Time to Break Free from Network Hardware is Now


Many corporate networks still rely on hardware appliances to define their perimeter, enforce policies, and route traffic. While these appliances have always been slow to provision and cumbersome to manage, they’ve balanced these challenges with general effectiveness and reliability.

And the steady shift of data, applications, and employees to the Internet creates new security and performance issues that hardware may not be able to handle.
