Cloud-Based Networking Gives Companies an Edge
The network and security opportunities and complexities for retail, restaurant, health care, and financial service chains have created a new demand for networking at the edge, which is best served by SD-WAN plus cloud security services.
Most SD-WAN (software-defined wide-area networks) solutions on the market are designed for large- to medium-size “carpeted” branch offices with local IT staff. For the highly distributed enterprise, a new approach is required to securely enable the wide variety of applications, back-office systems, IoT devices, and kiosks at remote locations that can range from hundreds to tens of thousands of sites. Addressing the legacy environment, enabling new services, and having this all work well together are paramount.
