Your business demands smarter connectivity at a lower cost
Do you feel your existing network capabilities are falling short to meet the evolving market needs? Can your traditional WAN support bandwidth-intensive cloud-based applications, the proliferation of IoT devices, or the hybrid workforce? Do you have adequate visibility and control across the network and cloud? Do you have a robust network strategy in place to support your ongoing digital transformation initiatives?
Challenges like these are increasingly pushing enterprises to switch to SD-WAN and give their businesses the connectivity boost. Software-defined Wide Area Network or SD-WAN is a secure, flexible and cost-effective networking solution that frees enterprises from the complex task of managing multi-branch-site connectivity across a wider geographical scale. With a centralized control to intelligently direct traffic across the network, SD-WAN accelerates application performance resulting in improved user experience, enhanced productivity, and reduced IT costs.
The global SD-WAN market will show a steady growth rate of 34% CAGR between 2020-2024
In the next 5 years, 80% of the top 5,000 Indian companies will migrate to SD-WAN
Almost all existing enterprise routers and firewalls to be replaced by SD-WAN devices in the next 5-6 years
Implementing and integrating SD-WAN remains a complex task for SMBs and enterprises with a lean IT philosophy
