The increased bandwidth demands from cloud-based business applications coupled with the latency introduced from applications being backhauled through the data center ultimately degrades application performance and negatively impacts user experience. Without accurate application detection-based traffic forwarding for cloud-based business applications, it is impossible to prioritize critical applications, secure local breakout sessions, and provide continued connectivity with failover and remediation. 

Organizations may find themselves unable to deliver an optimal user experience due to a lack of visibility into the network. Further, implementing traditional security solutions can drag performance on already degraded and strained networks.
