I’ve been in enterprise networking and security for nearly 30 years. In that time I can truly say that I’ve seen it all. After spending pretty much all of my calories in the world of IT, you can imagine that I have a long list of ‘lessons learned’. Lucky for you I won’t go through them now. Instead, my unsolicited advice to you when it comes to networking is: Don’t compromise. Simplicity and security ought to be attached at the hip and you shouldn’t have to sacrifice one for the other.
