INDUSTRY VIEW premises , server-based DNS and DHCP solutions . By using lighter virtual or physical devices in remote locations , essential services can be centrally managed in the cloud . You no longer have toconfigure devices locally or perform complex services on location . This leads to reduced hardware and operating costs .
A more reliable and secure network with cloud management
But how does network management in the cloud make your network more reliable ? In traditional networks , many tools are used side by side , leading to delays , compatibility issues and complexity . This makes management complicated and time-consuming .
By moving DDI management to the cloud , you can centrally manage your enterprise with greater flexibility , reliability and automation than traditional on-premises DDI solutions . In addition , cloud-based DDI reduces latency by ensuring that traffic from all locations connects directly to the cloud through the closest point of presence . This makes cloud applications such as Microsoft Office 365 work faster . This means that all employees can access cloud apps and data as quickly as when they are in the office .
Full and central DDI visibility not only provides a more controlled and efficient management experience for your network team but also increased security . The visibility of network traffic is an absolute precondition for security professionals to do their job well . You can ’ t protect what you can ’ t see and when your network is fragmented , security holes are more likely to occur . The advantage of central , cloud-based DDI is that you can monitor activity anywhere in the network and act quickly when suspicious actions occur .
For many organisations , cloudbased DDI management is a flexible and cost-effective alternative to ( or complements ) on-premises , serverbased DNS and DHCP solutions .
The cloud as the centre of gravity of your organisation
Traditional networks are not equipped to meet the needs of organisations as they no longer house all their apps and services in one data centre . Organisations are accelerating their Digital Transformation to respond to changing consumer demands and the needs of remote workers . It is therefore more important than ever to ensure that employees can access the company network , data and applications from anywhere and on any device . With cloud-based DDI management , organisations can provide secure and stable access to any remote business user and no longer have to rely on slow , fragmented systems . •
