… fundamental service you can provide to any IT team scoping out a potential SD-WAN solution.
To meet their ongoing digital transformation requirements, organizations are radically rethinking their branch and WAN edge strategies. For many, this means replacing static MPLS connections with SD-WAN solutions designed provide fast and efficient interconnectivity between branch offices and other critical resources.
In addition to high performance and advanced routing functionality, however, one of the functions most often overlooked is security. Unfortunately, because most solutions on the market fail to adequately address the issue of security, it can be an easy issue to forget until you are faced with having to build an ad hoc security solution from scratch.
Most IT teams are already stretched thin, and are unfamiliar with the complexity of choosing and deploying SD-WAN solutions. To overcome this challenge, and meet the growing business demand of transitioning a more comprehensive branch strategy, they need help from a trusted adviser. By understanding the requirements of a truly effective, scalable and secure SD-WAN solution, you are in a position to provide the help and guidance they need — and just at a time when cybercriminals are increasingly targeting the WAN edge as one of the weakest links in an organization’s security strategy.
