The perfect storm…

There is a perfect storm brewing at the nexus of BYOD, IoT, and Cloud. The close interrelationship of these technologies has caused a ripple and disintegration of the interpretation of typical security demarcations. While firewalls and intrusion systems still retain value, an important responsibility has fallen onto the network itself to instantiate secure segmentation. IoT devices must be secured from the rest of the enterprise network. Similarly, BYOD devices should be granted only limited trust. Not all networking technologies are up to this task.

Extreme Networks’ shortest-path bridging technology, Extreme Fabric Connect, is best-in-class when it comes to secure hypersegmentation. Its stealth characteristics are like no other. To prove this we will be repeating our Fabric Connect Hack-A-Thon for any and all comers.

Do you think you have the stuff to hack the fabric solution? No one has ever been successful, so you’d be the first. At the very best, you’ll win the grand prize of $10,000 for successfully achieving target penetration. At the very least, you will have a fun time and a unique experience that you will not forget.

The next time you make your network technology choice, it will be to deploy Extreme Fabric Connect.

Here are the top 8 reasons why you don’t want to miss Extreme Connect 2019!
