The ‘Smarter Social Enterprise’ changes the dynamics of how IT infrastructures are designed and delivered. The user experience is fast becoming the performance indicator of both the IT team, and even more importantly, the business itself. Exclusive Networks delivers technology platforms and products that help automate IT functions, reduce OPEX, and deliver the optimum user experience in terms of IT infrastructure performance, application availability, scalability and velocity.
Arista, Aerohive, F5 Networks, Infoblox, Avere Systems, Exinda and Isilon are just some of the vendor partners who provide the foundations that help develop Smarter Social Enterprise infrastructures for our customers.
The Smarter Social Enterprise requires smarter protection that places the emphasis on the virtues of information and data centric security, rather than network or systems security. To this end Exclusive focuses on ‘security for the next generation’; the next generation of users, applications, services and behaviour. The dynamics and interest around application security, device and ID integrity and data leakage prevention, is innovative, fast moving and compelling.
In addition, the focus of Exclusive Networks is also to look at the operational aspects of information security, hence you will find technologies in the portfolio that are disruptive and relevant in the whole ‘Smarter Social Enterprise‘ context, along with vendors who are less ‘fashionable’, but at least as important in terms of management, intervention and operational oversight. Vendors include; Arbor Networks, FireEye, Fortinet, F5 Networks, Palo Alto Networks, LogRhythm, Kaspersky Lab and SafeNet, just to name a few.
Digital natives increasingly dominate in the Smarter Social Enterprise, and their ferocious appetite to consume data continues to place huge demands on IT to deliver an optimal storage estate and service. Exclusive Networks understands that digital natives using smart computing devices, like tablets and phones, use and save double the amount of data as laptop/PC users. This places incredible stress on existing storage infrastructure. Exclusive Networks’ storage technologies have been chosen to help customers build high performance storage at the lowest possible operational cost. These vendors include Isilon and Avere Systems.
There has been a ‘perfect storm’ of convergence in the enterprise, with the merging of technologies, applications, devices and access technologies. In our view, the final piece of the puzzle came with the resilience and dependability of so-called smart devices and access technology availability, especially with 3G/4G and Wi-Fi. Combine this with the availability of cloud-based voice and video technologies and applets and you begin to understand the need to deliver ‘enterprise grade’ UC.
Exclusive Networks’ technologies and vendors have been chosen to complement the ‘applet’ market and help enable the Smarter Social Enterprise. This is an exciting space and our vendor partnership is set to evolve rapidly.
