SD-WAN is the technology that today’s users expect. Wide Area Networks designed for a different technology era aren’t suitable in 24/7, fast moving modern business environments. In a world where SaaS is becoming mainstream, legacy networks no longer have the ability to provide the resilience or handle the complexity this kind of traffic produces. Also, with more and more enterprises increasing their exposure to the internet and the cloud, there are mounting security issues that traditional network topologies struggle to combat. SD-WAN provides the following benefits
- Flexibility – add branches and users at the click of a button
- Control and Visibility– see your network in real time from the control panel and make changes instantly
- Reduced costs – resources can be redeployed due to the ease of running an SD-WAN system compared with a WAN
- Security – SD-WAN is fully secure and comes with the option to integrate with a portion of your MPLS system if you prefer to keep it.
As businesses undergo digital transformations and harness the power of clouds to stay competitive it is becoming impossible to manage this with traditional networks. SD-WAN provides the capability to leverage your cloud provider of choice, reduce reliance on the public internet and maintain control over ever more complex systems.
