Secure SD-WAN

Software-Defined Wide Area Networking

Industry-leading SD-WAN: Purpose-built from the ground up.

Part of Versa SASE (Secure Access Service Edge), Versa industry-leading SD-WAN offers an extensive list of capabilities including sub-second packet steering across multiple WAN interface, packet loss reduction through services such as FEC, packet replication, and poor performing link avoidance.

Additional features include encrypted and unencrypted overlays with MPLS/GRE or VXLAN, SD-WAN controller, WAN circuit support, full mesh topology, and hub-spoke topology, dynamic IPSec overlays, direct internet access, and a perfect marriage of HTTP/S Proxy.

Versa SD-WAN also acts as a DNS Proxy with SD-WAN Traffic steering, MP-BGP route exchange with SDN controller, stateful high-availability, link aggregation, hierarchical QoS, per tunnel QoS, and overlay encapsulation options (VXLAN, IPSec).

Versa secure SD-WAN technology differentiates from pure play SD-WAN vendors by implementing capabilities that enable a seamless SASE architecture. This includes visibility into traffic traversing the network between users, applications, and devices regardless of their location.

Why Secure SD-WAN?

Not all SD-WAN technologies are built alike.

Moving toward secure SD-WAN to deliver speed and scale.

Legacy WAN architectures are simply not up to the task of supporting digital transformation trends such as cloud-first and mobility-first architectures. Organizations need to embrace a software-defined Enterprise to achieve optimal application performance. To achieve this, secure SD-WAN devices should be deployed at sites and gateways where traffic can securely use any transport available to it for the most direct access to the cloud. An agile software-defined Enterprise can instantly identify traffic flows to SaaS applications such as Office 365, Salesforce, or Gmail and apply optimal multi-dimensional policies—for best path selection, QoS, security—and guarantees consistent security posture and application performance.

Versa industry-leading SD-WAN delivers top-class networking, security, visibility, automation and performance capabilities all built from the ground-up into the architecture. This helps organizations of all sizes overcome the challenges and complexities of on-premises, hybrid, or multi-cloud environments.

With a single software platform that meet your networking and security needs, Versa industry-leading SD-WAN allows organizations to reap the benefits of a fast, agile, scalable, and secure IT deployment can bring including better application performance, smaller attack surface, and ultimately lower cost of ownership.

Full support for a flexible network topology.

Versa supports all topologies including full mesh, partial mesh, hub-and-spoke and other arbitrary topologies. The Versa control plane provides flexibility to define and establish the topology of choice on any tenant. A single VRF per tenant can have one topology while another VRF for the same tenant can be part of a different topology.

Versa secure SD-WAN also supports the propagation of routes to multicast source-subnets within MP-BGP. This allows the VPN topology for multicast to be different than that for unicast. For example, the multicast topology can be Hub-and-Spoke whereas the unicast topology can be full-mesh.

Optimized for flexible hybrid and multi-cloud deployment.

Leveraging Versa automation, customers can manage the complete lifecycle of VOS from creation to termination from a single pane of glass, in just a few clicks. The complete orchestration of VOS on cloud is done with true zero touch provisioning. This methodology significantly cuts down cloud instantiation times and operational involvement. Versa eliminates multi-cloud complexity by automating dynamic multi-cloud overlay connectivity from any user/device/branch.

Additionally, VOS can be deployed in a colocation facility like Equinix Network Edge or Versa POPs with a low-latency express connection and on-ramp to multi-cloud and SaaS applications. The cloud experience is fully automated with Equinix Network Edge and Versa POPs for both infrastructure and connectivity.

Versa industry-leading SD-WAN has several inbuilt optimizations to force SD-WAN nodes to always send traffic back to the originating WAN port with the best traffic performance capabilities, avoiding any chances of asymmetric routing. The technology also leverages several standards-based loop prevention algorithms to eliminate sub-optimal performance and unplanned downtimes.

Versa offers an extensive list of secure SD-WAN capabilities such as sub-second packet steering across multiple WAN interface, packet loss reduction through services such as FEC, packet replication, and poor performing link avoidance that outperform the competition.
