Enjoy the compelling advantages for distributed organizations with critical branch operations, including the benefits of business agility, improved application performance, and lower cost of bandwidth. Transfering securely all traffic across the WAN will increase your application performance and provide an enhanced user experience, increased business productivity and reduced costs for IT.
A wide area network (WAN) might be used to connect branch offices to a central corporate network, or to connect data centers separated by distance. In the past, these WAN connections ofen used technology that required special proprietary hardware. The SD-WAN movement seeks to move more of the network control is moved into the “cloud,” using a sofware approach.
Transferring data traffic directly across the internet delivers the best application experience for users. However, not all cloud-bound or web traffic is created equal. Many cloud applications – and their providers – natively apply robust security measures. Accessing these “trusted” applications directly from the branch, across the internet provides the needed security to protect the enterprise from threats. A few examples include Salesforce, Office365, ServiceNow, Box, and Dropbox.
SD-WAN uses software and a centralized control function to more intelligently steer or direct traffic across the WAN. An SD-WAN handles traffic based on priority, quality of service and security requirements in accordance with business needs. The conventional router-centric model distributes the control function across all devices in the network - routers simply route traffic based on TCP/IP addresses and ACLs.
