You could have SD-WAN already…Just turn it on!
SD-Wan is now a standard feature on every WatchGuard Firebox network security appliance. You simply need to enable it and you can experience the cost and performance benefits right away. No need for confusing SD-WAN sales presentations, or lengthy evaluation cycles, just turn it on and try it out!
SD-Wan is a perfect fit for WatchGuard Fireboxes as it is a networking routing feature, and the WatchGuard firebox has always included networking features.
Don’t Deploy Half an SD-WAN Solution
WatchGuard solutions are the perfect fit for organisations with multiple sites with RapidDeploy included for zero-touch deployment at remote sites, centralised management, and robust BOVPNs with strong encryption.
If your organisation has multiple sites, you will probably have considered an SD-WAN (software-defined wide-area networking) deployment. Have all the security implications been considered? If not, then you are missing half of what’s needed in a full SD-WAN implementation.
SD-WAN Optimises Internet Service at Branch Locations
As you grow and data increases your bandwidth requirements and Internet costs grow. Understandably you will want to manage those costs and look to reduce your most expensive connection types. At the same time, organisational pressure exists to increase the productivity and efficiency of you and your colleagues with fast, direct access to Cloud applications and with network performance that supports high quality VoIP and video use.
Automated network solutions that measure and send traffic to the most appropriate WAN connection…continually optimising for cost and quality are the best was to achieve this. Software-defined wide-area networking, or SD-WAN, products can decrease the use of expensive MPLS or 4G/LTE connections allowing you to make internet connectivity cost saving. Alternatively, you may choose to maintain leased lines and focus SD-WAN benefits on network resiliency and performance improvements.
