Lancope Joins Open Networking Foundation by Angela Frechette Cannon

This week, Lancope announced that it has joined the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) dedicated to the commercialization and development of open standards for software-defined networking (SDN). As with any other new technology, security must be of the utmost concern during the early phases of SDN development. By joining ONF, Lancope is committing to help promote the benefits of SDN while also working to ensure that it is developed and implemented in a way that does not jeopardize network security or increase enterprise risk.

Lancope is excited to become part of this valuable group at such a pivotal time in SDN development. ONF members include a mix of enterprise IT, cloud and telecom service providers, as well as network equipment and silicon vendors.
