Enterasys Networks today introduced the Matrix X-Series, a family of core routers the company says will support the most demanding enterprise applications and business-critical communications.
"Today, enterprises need to deploy next-generation high-performance business applications quickly, efficiently and-most importantly-securely," the company said. "Network infrastructure must align with the key business drivers of all types of enterprises."
These include responsive customer service, critical partner communications and increased employee productivity.
As enterprises increasingly rely on their networks for critical communications, operations and customer-service activities, they become increasingly vulnerable to opportunistic worms, viruses, highly distributed denial-of-service attacks, fragmented attacks and internal threats to the network and to the business itself.
“New technologies, such as VoIP, make enterprises even more dependent on their networks, because an attack not only disrupts data traffic but also can bring down the entire phone system, as well,” said Mark Aslett, Enterasys’ president and chief operating officer.
