Traditional wide area networks (WANs) were not designed to support the volume and velocity of traffic that is being pushed to branch offices and distributed locations as a result of greater digitalization and distributed applications. This hub-and spoke architecture can lead to bottlenecks at the network edge, which results in sluggish performance for end-users—especially under the ever-increasing bandwidth demands that
come with digital transformation.
An SD-WAN approach that depends on separate security appliances adds to maintenance and support demand because IT teams have to install, configure, and manage multiple appliances via separate management consoles. They have to stitch connectivity and policies between network and security appliances to protect users and business-critical applications.
