Assess your current network performance and management
When it comes to assessing your SD-WAN and
business requirements, you’ll need to consider security.
That’s why it’s important to find a trusted solution

How to find out if SD-WAN is right for you
You don’t need additional security for SD-WAN as it’s embedded in the device
Cost reduction is the main driver for SD-WAN adoption
SD-WAN will replace
traditional Private Network (MPLS) based networks
Cost reduction is just one driver for SD-WAN as it enables you to manage your WAN through software. But there are other drivers which
include: efficient bandwidth optimisation,
improving apps performance at your branches through traffic prioritisation over the Internet, acceleration of branch deployment with IT
automation tools to support greater speed
They can co-exist because the quality of an underlay network such as MPLS supports the quality of an SD-WAN overlay network.
SD-WAN enables you to offload traffic for social media and video apps to the internet, leaving more room on the MPLS underlay
network for your important business apps.
By moving branch traffic off the MPLS
network and onto the Internet, there will be more threat points to manage. Whilst SD-WAN enables you to set up network-wide business and security policies, other potential areas of vulnerability can still exist. So it’s important to consider additional security such as end-point security, security services at the branch, next generation firewalls and security monitoring services.
