SD-WAN is the fastest growing technology in our business. By the time you read this, countless more companies are adding SD-WAN to their communications infrastructure.
SD-WAN is a software-defined approach to managing the WAN.
Key advantages include:
Times have changed. As businesses adopt the use of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) applications in multiple clouds, IT is realizing that the user application experience is poor. That is because WANs designed for a different era are not ready for the unprecedented explosion of WAN traffic that cloud adoption brings. That traffic causes management complexity, application-performance unpredictability, and data vulnerability.
Further, opening the enterprise to the Internet and the cloud exposes major threat and compliance issues. It is extremely challenging to protect the critical assets of an enterprise when applications are accessed by a diverse workforce, including employees, partners, contractors, vendors, and guests. Enabling broadband on the WAN makes the security requirements more acute, creating challenges for IT in balancing user experience, security, and complexity.
