Increasing cloud adoption, the proliferation of endpoint devices, implementation of 5G, and greater demands on network and application performance have now created a perfect storm that puts immense pressure on IT networks to transform.
A long-term network strategy is essential to thrive in the long term. SD-WAN provides the answer, as it delivers both quick wins and a long-term networking approach that empowers businesses to adapt to the changing business environment successfully.
SD-WAN can deliver exceptional networking benefits including better application performance and user experiences, more reliable traffic management, and increased visibility into the network. However, when they don’t work with the right partners, new SD-WAN customers often face key challenges including unexpectedly high costs, challenging implementations, increased management and support requirements, lack of security, and insufficient visibility and control.
Secure cloud and user connectivity has become foundational to the distributed enterprise, and increasingly vital to achieving key business outcomes. This eBook explores the key challenges organisations are facing as they become more distributed, and the outcomes they’re seeking to achieve.

You may have heard about SD-WAN, one of the fastest-growing tech sectors. In fact, the International Data Corporation estimates that the SD-WAN market is poised to reach $5.25 billion by 2023. The reason is simple: software-defined WAN allows businesses to extend their network capabilities to branch offices, mobile users, and into the cloud quickly and easily.
Network security is a moving target. Every time you add a new network service (digital transformation, or DX), you are expanding your attack surface, while adversaries develop newer, faster and more clever ways to hack into your systems, steal or corrupt your data and degrade your network performance. These services all need to be secured.
Today’s workforce requires fast, secure access to email, enterprise applications, and the cloud, regardless of device or location. Increasingly, SD-WAN is becoming the ‘solution du jour’ for distributed enterprises as they adapt their networks to cater to a rapidly evolving workforce.
Network upgrades are a process – they don’t happen overnight. But they don’t have to be difficult. In fact, that’s one of the key benefits of a managed service. The service provider assumes some of the risk, takes care of the bulk of the work, and via a service level agreement guarantees that the upgraded network services work as specified.
