Cloud Drives Need for Full-Featured SD-WAN

With the rapid adoption of cloud services, securely and directly connecting branch workers to SaaS applications over the internet yields the highest application performance and effectively renders conventional router-centric WAN architectures obsolete. In parallel, there is increasing pressure on enterprise IT organizations to enhance business agility by bringing new sites and new applications online more quickly. By integrating SD-WAN, WAN optimization, routing and security into an advanced application-driven SD-WAN edge, enterprises can centrally orchestrate all branch WAN management functions, moving beyond time and resource intensive manual device by device router configuration and management. With an advanced SD-WAN solution, enterprises can increase business productivity and agility, accelerate time to value and dramatically reduce operational overhead.
