Networking devices, locations, users and everything else via the internet are changing how people, resources and processes collaborate and businesses are faced with the challenge of setting up a secure connection to the cloud (IaaS, SaaS, PaaS) or their own data centre. This new standard is known as SD-WAN and should fulfil the requirements of businesses looking for a software-based wide-area network.
The demands being placed on corporate network infrastructures are greater than ever as businesses require greater agility, resilience and better application performance.
We know that in the past, traditional WAN infrastructures were more about connectivity than security. In the age of hybrid cloud architectures, it’s more important than ever that we rethink the topics of IT security and global networking. Our network structures need to grow dynamically with application requirements and also guarantee security for transported applications and data.
