What to Consider When Evaluating your SD-WAN Options

Fortinet EMEA

Enterprises currently face challenges regarding the price, performance, and flexibility of traditional wide area networks (WANs). Aggressive growth in the adoption of public cloud services (a projected 86% spike between 2014 and 2018)1 is forcing organizations to look elsewhere for a more effective network solution to address distributed traffic across remote sites and branch offices. Some of the specific issues organizations face with their traditional WANs include:

- High total cost of ownership (TCO) Lengthy provisioning cycles - Performance degradation with the growth of cloud traffic
- Inadequate redundancy and resiliency
- Lack of application-aware connectivity To better manage WAN
