Empowering Distributed Enterprises with Secured SD-WAN

The Move from WAN to SD-WAN

As organizations transition to a digital business model, it is having a significant impact on their network topologies. The adoption of cloud services, the virtualization of the traditional network, and an increasingly mobile workforce accessing applications in the cloud are accelerating advancements in wide area networking technologies. The traditional wide area network (WAN) is struggling to keep up because it relies on a static infrastructure of devices that simply can’t accommodate shifting, and often temporary resource allocation and workloads.

As a result, IT teams are adopting an on-demand consumption model for their compute infrastructure and applications to improve efficiency and productivity. Unlike traditional WAN architectures, new software-defined wide area networks, or SD-WANs, are able to dynamically distribute traffic across multiple locations while automatically responding to changing application policies. SD-WAN is also transport and carrier-agnostic, which means expensive MPLS can be replaced with more cost-effective connections, such as internet and LTE, allowing time and cost-saving functions such as intelligent path selection to be enabled.
