MPLS, SD-WAN, and the Promise of SD-WAN as a Service
It wasn’t so long ago that managing and securing enterprise networks was, well, simpler. The wide area network (WAN) of choice was MPLS. The only users were those in fixed locations and the only corporate applications were those housed on company premises. Security meant anti-virus software on endpoints and a firewall protecting the company from the dangerous and wily world beyond.
But as business has evolved so too the network perimeter has dissolved. Fixed locations have given way to mobile users, corporate applications to cloud services, and servers to cloud instances. Security threats have skyrocketed and so have the number of security appliances.
Read more how to optimise connectivity to on-premises and cloud applications, enable secure branch internet access everywhere, and seamlessly integrate cloud datacenters and mobile users into the network with a zero-trust architecture.
