With remote work on the rise, today’s enterprises are highly distributed with users and applications residing everywhere. At any given time a user can simultaneously be connected to the corporate data center, a cloud SaaS app and collaborating on a video conference while looking up something on the Internet. Connecting users direct to the Internet and cloud applications instead of backhauling traffic through a data center security stack provides a better user experience, but is it secure?
Critical for today’s hybrid cloud environments, software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) enables enterprises to provide optimized connectivity over both broadband Internet and private links to applications that reside in data centers, IaaS/PaaS clouds, SaaS and any hybrid scenario while simplifying and centralizing branch management.
