I have worked with many vendors over the past 30 years, and it is rare to find an organization with such a breadth of product offerings, key industry knowledge, and Tier 1 quality support. It makes my job a lot easier.
The Glass Box team has carefully crafted their staff, services, and product offerings to reflect a true understanding of what is important to customers. They are relevant in all aspects of their business, knowledge, and abilities. Their ability to deliver is outstanding. Steve Lee and the team consistently exceeded my expectations, as their resourcefulness is “World Class.” My experiences with the Glass Box team have been nothing short of spectacular, and I appreciate their efforts in helping us be successful.

Extreme Networks has been on a roll lately, purchasing Avaya’s networking business, Brocade’s networking assets, and Zebra Technologies’ wireless portfolio. What could this mean for enterprise customers? In the short term, probably nothing – all current products will continue to be supported. However, as with any acquisition, there will inevitably be consolidation of product lines, and the discontinuing of others. Many industry analysts believe that the mergers will be beneficial, with Avaya’s strengths in campus environments complementing Extreme’s focus on campus deployments, and Zebra’s wireless security and managed services helped plug some holes in Extreme’s portfolio. At this point, only time will tell how successful the merger is, but Extreme may be good to consider for your next hardware refresh.
As the Internet of Things continues to expand, security will be an ongoing concern for network administrators. In order to maintain data security, Cisco has unveiled its newest offering: IoT Threat Defense, a package containing seven different tools that will limit the damage that can be done with IoT security breaches. Cisco’s strategy is based on the premise that IoT devices cannot be trusted to be secure, so the best way to compensate for this is to limit the damage that can be done to the network. This is done through a combination of network segmentation, behavior analytics, and more. With IDC’s prediction that IoT endpoints will skyrocket from 14.9 billion in 2016 to 50 billion by 2020, IoT security will be an important factor in network security in the coming years; Cisco is leading the charge in laying the groundwork.
