Cisco: SD-WAN is Mission-Critical – Don’t Leave Critical Functions Shortchanged
0

There is justifiably a great deal of hype around the rise of Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN). Organizations are becoming more digitized and increasingly rely upon a mixture of public and private cloud-based applications for day-to-day functions. This shift toward digitization has exponentially increased the need for a new networking paradigm for distributed enterprises (organizations that operate with a headquarters and multiple remote locations) as the exponential increase in cloud applications renders legacy remote connectivity options (such as exclusively relying upon MPLS) untenable.

Security is also an important factor in this shift. A breakthrough of SD-WAN is its ability to deploy consistent security throughout the network of branch locations, leveraging integrated next-generation firewalls in many cases. Perhaps, one of the more attractive features of SD-WAN is the ease of management for branch locations. Centralized, GUI-based management interfaces make deployment, troubleshooting, and ongoing management easier.
