About NetScaler SD-WAN
NetScaler SD-WAN increases the performance and reliability of traditional enterprise applications, SaaS applications and virtual desktops over any network while simplifying the branch network.
Businesses rely on branch offices or remote employees to serve customers, to be near partners and suppliers and to expand into new markets. As desktop virtualization increases and applications move to the cloud, IT managers face the challenge of providing applications reliably and without a performance penalty to branch and mobile users. Now enterprises can use NetScaler SD-WAN to software define their WAN, rendering it more scalable, cost-effective and ready to connect to the cloud, while ensuring excellent application performance. At the same time, NetScaler SD-WAN can help you to effectively and economically simplify the branch network with integrated routing, firewall, and WAN optimization capabilities.
Why NetScaler SD-WAN
- Maintain high performance for mission critical applications even when a network link fails
- Improve the virtual desktop experience to branch-office and mobile users and accelerate traditional enterprise applications

- Simplify IT with integrated routing, firewall and WAN Optimization to reduce network footprint
- Secure data across the WAN and to the cloud with strong encryption, application level security policies and data segmentation
