Managed SD-WAN – The Everywhere Experience
The customer-driven force behind SD-WAN adoption
Business agility, ease-of-deployment, integrated security and the affordability of building a ubiquitous customer experience are the reasons SD-WAN adoption is so hot these days.
Consider this: networking costs for distributed enterprise sites such as restaurants and retail stores may exceed 60% of overall IT spending. Despite that, remote locations typically receive only minimal on-site security and IT support.
Software-defined WANs (SD-WANs) are now filling in these gaps by delivering more and better services at a much lower cost. SD-WANs add unprecedented agility, speed to market and cost savings by decoupling hardware from software. Secure, cloud-managed SD-WANs add even more benefits and services, including defense-in-depth protection, automated security and performance configuration, and centralized management and service insertion.
