Take a Network Break! This week we explore brand-new security features in Cisco’s Tetration product, analyze the market impact of new Meraki APs, and review lessons learned from a massive DDoS against GitHub (lock down your memecached servers).
Dropbox saves cash moving away from AWS, Canada cans an IBM/Oracle project, and D-Link adds SDN features and gets into britebox.
The Mobile World Congress reminds us that 5G is coming but it ain’t here yet, WLAN startup Mist wins big VC bucks, and Palo Alto Networks posts a decent quarter.
