A Tunneling protocol is a network protocol which encapsulates one protocol or session inside another. Tunneling may be used to transport a network protocol through a network which would not otherwise support it. Tunneling may also be used to provide various types of VPN functionality such as private addressing.

Over time, every IT portfolio gets bogged down in the chaos of servers, platforms, and software that
make up the current IT landscape. Legacy systems, disparate architectures, and aging technologies slowly eat away at returns, reduce your ability to respond to shifting demands, and limit how quickly you can scale to meet new market opportunities. IT modernization lets you reboot your portfolio for greater agility, reduced cost, and operational excellence. This frees up your time and money to focus on innovation, not implementation.
Ubiquitous connectivity has its benefits, but in the enterprise it also introduces the danger of information overload and communication breakdown. Businesses need to look to consumer social hubs and evolve their communications solutions from separate silos to an integrated mix of devices, apps and solutions on a cloud-based infrastructure.

"Today there are 10 billion mobile devices, 50 percent more applications, an infinite amount of unique configurations and more distributed workers than ever before," writes Elizabeth Cholawsky, VP of IT Support and Access at Citrix. And as usual, IT departments must meet these new challenges with limited resources.
"The IT world is in the midst of dramatic change."
This report takes a look at the enterprise threat landscape as it stands in 2013. What areas should you be sitting up and paying attention to? What areas can you afford to pay a little less attention to? We try to cover off all those questions and more. We hope you find the information inside useful as you step up your fight against the bad guys by deploying good technologies and best practice.
The ongoing global economic recession has left no business, budget, or IT organization unscathed. Corporations, forced to do more with fewer resources, are demanding greater economies of scale. That sets expectations that IT organizations will remain lean yet deliver high-quality services and support. This requires IT organizations to develop more process-oriented, efficient, and effective mechanisms to manage and maintain their environments.
IT needs to deliver a high quality user experience in order to accelerate business success. But how many organisations closely monitor that experience, analyse it and have systems in place to deal with any problems?
In Autumn 2010, we commissioned an independent Study to find out. It involved interviewing over 400 business and IT leaders in different industry sectors across 14 countries to assess their position.
Over the last two decades, IT organizations have spent billions of dollars implementing fault management tools and processes to maximize network availability. While availability management is critical, infrastructure reliability has improved to the point at which 99.9 percent availability is commonplace. Given these improvements in infrastructure availability, companies are focusing more attention on performance management. By measuring how networked applications and services perform under normal circumstances, understanding how infrastructure and application changes impact performance, and isolating the sources of above-normal latency, IT organizations can ensure problems are resolved quickly, mitigate risk from planned and unplanned changes, and take measured steps to optimize application performance. In this paper, you will learn why this shift is taking place and how a new management model, what CA Technologies calls Performance First, can empower you to advance to the next level in managing your network for application performance.
Business applications today have become the primary interface between a company and its customers. And, there has simultaneously been tremendous innovation in the area of business intelligence, which can unlock a personalized experience for each an every user - and help support key corporate objectives to increase revenue, strengthen customer loyalty and establish and maintain a high-quality brand in the marketplace. For technology managers, then, this is an exciting time to demonstrate the value of IT to the business. But, the situation also exposes the intense risk we place on our IT applications because they now carry enormous organizational responsibility and significance.
