Consolidate branch services, while delivering, security, agility, and performanceGartner Survey Analysis: Security is the biggest WAN concern
Distributed enterprise branches transitioning to a digital business model are having a significant impact on the network. The adoption of cloud services is accelerating advancements in WAN technologies. With enterprises directly accessing the internet, it’s becoming critical to deploy next-generation security strategies along with enabling multi-path WAN to improve application performance.
Provisioning new branches and rapidly adopting new technologies can be expensive, difficult and time consuming. To make matters worse, security is often overlooked.
Recent surveys have shown that users see a need for WAN solutions that also integrate and offer common management with their internal LAN networking solutions. Additionally, security was the top concern across all respondents.
