Why Analytics is Critical for True SD-WAN

WANs (Wide Area Networks) allow companies to extend their computer networks to be able to connect remote branch offices to data centers, public cloud, SaaS applications, and other internet-delivered applications and services that are required to perform essential business functions. Applications and connectivity are the lifeblood of all organizations today. The ability to connect users predictably and securely across branches, HQ, data centers, public clouds, etc. is the key to their success. However, more applications mean more demands on the network – and more demands on the teams that run them.

For business continuity, enabling WFH pervasively is essential. Businesses looking to enable WFH must allow home workers to use their personal networks and devices to access business critical applications that may be hosted at a corporate datacenter or in the cloud. A robust, scalable, and secure work-from-home (WFH) solution ensures organizations can thrive regardless of any global, regional, or local events such as the pandemic of 2020. However, giving employees both the flexibility to work in the office or at home comes with its unique set of challenges.

What makes the Versa Secure SD-WAN solution a better choice than the average SD-WAN offering in the market? As with any other assessment, you have to lift the covers and look underneath—see what’s inside, how it’s built, how the engine works, and how it achieves the oft-touted qualities you’d come to expect of a robust SD-WAN. A significant part of the sophistication lies in the control plane: how the secure tunnels of the overlay are built; how control traffic is separated and secured from data plane traffic; how traffic in the tunnels is abstracted as “bundles” that fan out over…

Multi-tenancy for an enterprise? It’s a service provider thing! No, not really, in the e-commerce age you need it more than ever. There are myriad reasons to secure your enterprise network with a genuine multi-tenancy architecture—it’s critical to plug the security deficits of the also-ran legacy tenancy architectures. Listen to this webinar to hear Neil Danilowicz, Principal Architect, and myself, discuss the essentials of a genuine multi-tenancy architecture: the complete isolation of the control, data and management planes. If any of these planes bleeds across—in a shared device; in shared access to any network resource—it opens a security vulnerability. Enterprises…

Secure SD-WAN Architecture Overview

Why not keep the WAN you already have? Why migrate to Secure SD-WAN? In a nutshell: to remove complexity and inefficiencies from your network operations; to use an architecture tailored specifically to address the heightened security needs and altered traffic patterns in your network. The typical legacy WAN branch office contains a tall stack of boxes: WiFi, switch, router, WAAS, security appliance. And if you already have an SD-WAN deployed, then also an SD-WAN box. A lot of boxes, consuming power and space. Tracing the path of a packet through this quagmire, fully 60% of the processing is duplicated in…
