The 2008 Handbook of Application Delivery: A Guide to Decision Making


IT organizations can no longer manage networks in isolation from the applications they support, requiring a shift from focusing on devices to a focus on performance. But a number of factors complicate the task of ensuring acceptable application performance, including the lack of visibility into application performance. Learn tips to plan, optimize, manage, and control your application performance and improve delivery.

application servers  services that comprise the application typically run on servers that are housed within multiple data centers. As a result, the WAN impacts multiple traffic flows and hence has a greater overall impact on the performance of a Web services-based application that it does on the performance of an n-tier application. Web Services and Security The expanding use of Web services creates some new security challenges. Part of this challenge stems from the fact that in most instances, the blueprint for Web services Read More

Keys to Accelerating Web Application Delivery


Slowdowns, scalability issues, and security gaps hit Web applications where it hurts. Data center consolidations put distance between application servers and users—producing long round-trips and slow response times. Luckily, there is a solution. Deploying a wire-speed application system—in a unified single-platform design—boosts response times, improves infrastructure scalability, and safeguards against security threats.

Web Application Security: How to Minimize Prevalent Risk of Attacks


Vulnerabilities in Web applications are now the largest vector of enterprise security attacks. Attacks compromising sensitive data are often the result of “cross-site scripting,” “SQL injection,” and “buffer overflow.” As many companies have discovered, these attacks will evade traditional network defenses unless you take new precautions with automated detection. Learn more in this primer to Web application security.
