What is SD-WAN?
Learn about the capabilities you should expect to find in a full-featured SD-WAN design and how these features operate within the larger Secure SD-WAN architecture.
Futuriom outlines the market trends for SD-WAN in their June 2020 report and provides their predictions for growth and change in the space.

Learn about the Versa Secure SD-WAN solution in a high-level, one minute overview.
Versa Secure SD-WAN is a single software platform that offers multi-layered security and enables multi-cloud connectivity for Enterprises.
Addressing the optimization and security of branch access to cloud-hosted mission-critical applications and workloads, in a dynamic, simplified and automated manner, is essential for contemporary business operations. Secure SD-WAN services enable enterprises to create an enterprise-wide cloud-network fabric that accelerates modern day application consumption demands and supports enterprise digital agility, speed and security, all while ensuring and improving end-user experience for productivity, collaboration and business services.
Versa Branch (Versa VOS™ (formerly FlexVNF)) and Headend (Director, Analytics, Controller [Versa VOS™ (formerly FlexVNF)]) are supported on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. The process of instantiating the Headend topology can be automated using a Cloud Formation template or a Terraform template respectively.
Versa Director also supports AWS and Azure APIs, which can be used to automate instantiation, configuration and monitoring of the Versa VOS™ (formerly FlexVNF) branch in the customer Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
Organizations who are thinking of a naked cloud instance, don’t necessarily have visibility into the performance mechanisms that Versa provides with and end-to-end SD-WAN fabric. With Versa, customers are getting the cost benefit of application-level security as well as next-gen firewall into the same package of software that also executes SD-WAN performance monitoring.
Versa SD-WAN with AWS integration is also a new standard for total cost of ownership advantage. The price-per-bit picture becomes much clearer because customers have security and performance, while reducing the number of devices under management on premise, and every function, from on-premise branch to multiple clouds and back, are being reported in a holistic manner through one Versa console.
Amazon VPC Ingress Routing Overview:
Customers want the flexibility to control the routing path of their traffic and direct traffic packets through virtual appliances of their choice. Amazon VPC Ingress Routing is a new service that helps customers simplify the integration of network and security appliances within their network topology. With Amazon VPC Ingress Routing, customers can define routing rules at the Internet Gateway (IGW) and Virtual Private Gateway (VGW) to redirect ingress traffic to third-party appliances, before it reaches the final destination. This makes it easier for customers to deploy production-grade applications with the networking and security services they require within their Amazon VPC.
Amazon VPC Ingress Routing will address the following use cases:
Versa is announcing its support for Amazon VPC Ingress Routing, which was unveiled today at AWS re:Invent 2019. Versa’s disruptive SD-WAN technology is fully integrated with AWS to take advantage of Amazon VPC Ingress Routing, so that mutual customers can associate route tables with the internet gateway and virtual private gateway to redirect ingress traffic through network and security appliances such as Versa VOS™ (formerly FlexVNF).
From an SD-WAN perspective, connecting edge networks and the user experience with the cloud is one of the most critical aspects of a progressive SD-WAN solution, which enables companies to move workloads back and forth from clouds to on-premises as seamlessly as SD-WAN is executed on-premises only. Versa service provider partners are also able to take advantage of Versa support for VPC in order to create the best user experience as possible for their customers.”
