Business - IPv6 Migration
For the last ten years, business has been eyeing the IPv6 standard – recognizing the need for a move to an addressing scheme that eliminates the pain of conceding to the complexities and limitations of Network Address Translators (NATs). However, the networking infrastructure requirements are vastly different. More importantly, the challenges of how to make the enormous amounts of traditional IPv4 applications and services, many of which serve as critical business collaboration and productivity tools, available to new IPv6-only users, are preventing many businesses from making the move. However, with the introduction of ProxySG Proxy Edition and SGOS 5.5, Blue Coat has removed many of the barriers to migration. Blue Coat allows you to implement a mixed IPv4 and IPv6 network, where IPv4 and IPv6 users can access applications and content regardless of the underlying IP infrastructure.
Security risks are present in both transition and in the native IPv6 environments. ProxySG IPv6 solution enables policy-aided migration without compromising on security. ProxySG also allows complete and intelligent policy-based management of traffic, applications, and content – the only solution today that provides visibility, control and optimization in the native IPv6 world. This same secure platform enables IT staff to gain invaluable operational experiences on IPv6.
