What is SD-WAN?
SD-WAN is a virtual WAN concept that allows multi-branch enterprises to increase productivity while lowering operational costs. Proprietary backhaul connectivity services, poor network performance, and inconsistent security posture and policy administration are all issues that need to be improved. All of this makes low-risk cloud application adoption and other digital transformation activities difficult.
Traditional WAN architecture increases latency and slows down network performance to cloud services. This has driven Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) solutions to become increasingly popular as organizations request fast, scalable, and flexible connectivity among different network environments.
Why do you need SD-WAN?
Better Application Experience SD-WAN enables remote sites to connect to networks and/or multiple clouds more simply, with lower latency, greater performance, and more dependable connectivity.
Instant ROI Benefits SD-WAN can assist minimize capital expenditures by permitting the merger of different point networking and security devices at the edge, while also providing improved management and performance.
Efficient Operations SD-WAN employs automation to simplify connectivity across a variety of environments, including on-premises, hybrid, and cloud.
Enhanced Security Posture. Secure SD-WAN allows for secure direct internet access when correctly built. An SD-WAN system must be able to provide consistent security at all edges, from flexible WAN edges to the cloud edge.
Benefits of SD-WAN
Improves performance: Network traffic isn’t all created equal. Fortunately, SD-WAN can be set up to prioritise business-critical traffic and real-time services such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and then direct it to the most efficient path.
Boosts security: SD-WAN solutions provide a wide range of integrated security features, such as NGFW, IPS, encryption, AV, and sandboxing capabilities that can help prevent data loss, downtime, regulatory violations, and legal liabilities.
Lowers complexity: SD-WAN can ease the IT burden by simplifying WAN infrastructure, using broadband to off-load non-critical business apps, automating monitoring tasks, and managing traffic through a centralized controller.
Enables cloud usage: SD-WAN enables direct cloud access at the remote branch, thereby eliminating backhauling traffic – routing all cloud and branch office traffic through the data center. SD-WAN improves cloud application performance by prioritizing business critical applications and enabling branches to directly communicate to the Internet.
Reduces costs: SD-WAN can reduce this price tag by leveraging low cost local Internet access, providing direct cloud access, and reducing the amount of traffic over the backbone WAN.
