Expanding access by bringing the cloud to wide-area networks | #reInvent

Business runs on data. In the modern world, that data has to move, and move fast. If the right people don’t have access to the right data at the right time, a company’s tech infrastructure is just expensive junk.

Policy-defined security protects networks from the Internet of Things | #HPEDiscover

Networks are going mobile. The old system of terminals and servers is fading away to make room for smartphones, tablets and wireless devices of all kinds.
