SD-WAN is Software Defined-Wide Area Networking, and essentially it is a new packaging of networking technologies allowing you to centrally manage your networks from one single controller, factoring in many important and practical elements that are deemed necessary in any digital transformation that you may be looking to adopt, from automation, enhanced security and importantly increased visibility which wouldn’t be seen on a legacy network.

Advantages to SD-WAN

  • Improved flexibility
  • Improved performance
  • Increased visibility and control
  • Easy to set up
  • Increased bandwidth
  • improved network security with a Secure solution

SD-WAN furthermore embraces automation capabilities and as a result of this it supports driving efficiencies with high quality connectivity, which can ensure that automation is a key driver towards adopting SD-WAN.

When it comes to SD-WAN, as with any new technology there’s always a buzz around it, which can leave you wondering the truth surrounding it… From the myths and misconceptions, to whether it’s an alternative to MPLS (which it’s not, here at Data Installation & Supplies we see it as a supplement) and whether adopting is the right solution to your business and individual needs, not to mention the understanding you need to gain in order to know how secure it is.

Is SD-WAN secure?

At DIS we completely understand before you even begin to consider any new network management solutions the first and most important question that will spring to your mind is the security aspect, the simple answer to this is the security will depend on the solution that you choose to adopt.

With SD-WAN adoption we will be moving the traffic from your secure, structured private MPLS onto direct internet, so there is the reality that it will be exposed to hackers and malware.

At Data Installation & Supplies we offer a secure solution, which is designed with security and data protection in mind.

What are the benefits of SD-WAN?

When it comes to the benefits of SD-WAN you will be pleased to know the three main benefits are improved performance, increased visibility and control and that when you choose to adopt an SD-WAN solution, it’s easy to implement.
