Top 3 Benefits of SD-WAN and SASE for Large Enterprises
It is difficult for large enterprises to maintain communication between the central office and branches. Often this process is complicated by the high cost of deploying corporate networks, the vulnerability of the technology, and the need for ongoing professional software maintenance. But recently, SD-WAN technology has been gaining momentum in mid-sized enterprises.
What is SD-WAN in simple words?
SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network) is a technology that gives organizations the ability to manage and control their network connections over long distances.
SD-WAN technology replaces dedicated physical devices such as routers with software and allows companies to easily connect branches and offices over the Internet using fiber optic lines, DSL, or mobile networks.
SD-WAN and SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) are connected to each other. SASE represents an evolution of the SD-WAN concept and combines its capabilities with additional security features. Thus, the combination of SD-WAN and SASE allows organizations to create a more flexible, efficient and secure network. Let's take a closer look at the benefits of the technology.
Improved network flexibility and efficiency
SD-WAN and SASE technologies allow companies to connect branch offices and remote workers and manage the former and latter through various types of network connections. This makes it possible to choose the most efficient and available networks for each specific location, improving performance and reducing communication costs.
Companies also get centralized network management to configure and optimize traffic, set security rules, and monitor network performance.
Secure connection and data protection
Integration of SASE security features into SD-WAN technology includes firewalls, threat protection, traffic encryption, access control and other tools.
Companies can provide secure access to cloud applications and resources and protect their networks from external attacks.
Cloud Architecture & Flexible Deployment
SD-WAN and SASE are based on a cloud architecture, which provides an easier and more scalable network deployment. Companies can avoid complex physical infrastructure and use cloud platforms to provide secure network services.
