Advanced SD-WAN: Powering the Cloud-Connected Enterprise

Today’s cloud-connected enterprise demands a new WAN architecture, an SD-WAN, to meet the performance and security requirements for SaaS and IaaS. As SD-WAN technology evolves, new levels of automation, security and architectural simplification have emerged. First-packet application classification is an advanced capability that automatically steers trusted SaaS and web traffic directly to the internet and unknown or suspicious traffic to a next-generation firewall for additional security inspection.

Further advancements harness machine learning and AI to enable adaptive, application-centric traffic handling and pervasive security. With automation, machine learning, and AI, the Self-Driving WAN can be realized.
