SD-WAN has become the people’s choice of network management—but why? This network option comes with significant benefits, including:
Anything sent or received through SD-WANs is encrypted, making it difficult for unauthorized users to access it. This network also secures all endpoints of data transfers and includes basic firewalls and VPN functionalities.
Reduced Networking Costs
You cut costs on your networking infrastructure without the need for hardware and servers. SD-WAN replaces other, more expensive connection types like MPLS. Plus, SD-WAN increases your cybersecurity measures, making costly data breaches less likely.
Your business can change the size of a wide-area network as traffic volumes increase or decrease. This network is incredibly customizable, which is excellent for companies with large volumes of virtual traffic.
You can program SD-WAN to prioritize specific types of traffic. This means your data gets sent and received much faster. Set up your SD-WAN to send business-critical traffic through the most efficient route since it’s important to your daily operations. Receiving data in a timely manner helps your staff stay on task and keeps things flowing smoothly.
SD-WAN operates using cloud platforms, eliminating the need for expensive servers and infrastructure hardware. Cloud access also eliminates backhauling traffic by routing all cloud and branch traffic through the data center. Your employees can directly access cloud applications, no matter where they’re located, without interrupting the core network with more traffic. SD-WAN also improves cloud application performance by prioritizing business-critical data and allowing businesses to communicate via the Internet easily.
