Download: Migrating to SASE SD-WAN – A practical guide for successful WAN transformation

Migrating to SASE SD-WAN


SASE is defined by Gartner and delivers an architectural transformation of enterprise networking and security. SASE enables IT to provide a converged, agile and adaptable service to the digital business. SASE delivers high throughput connectivity and easily managed and unified network security. This lowers the cost, complexity and risk of supporting the business in a dynamic environment.

Most SASE vendors support a gradual migration process, during which a SASE platform can co-exist with legacy networks and security products – until they’re fully retired. This ultimately means you can allocate already available budget for your SASE migration, rather than trying to find new budget resources.

Whatever the approach, migrating to SASE is a long-term project that requires thorough planning, this whitepaper may serve as a practical guide.

A comparison of private global network backbones


Every major disruption starts with a displacement of the “tried and true.” The cloud displaced virtualization, which disrupted the server industry. Backbones are no different.

This whitepaper describes how SASE platforms provide the same level of consistency and predictability as MPLS. In addition, SASE brings built-in advanced security, ubiquitous coverage, and support for cloud, SaaS, and mobility.

How to avoid Integrating Point Solutions with Sweat and Tears


Historically, IT solved emerging business needs with point solutions, and as more network and security products piled up, IT was expected to manage and maintain them all. This responsibility forged the perception that only by managing everything on their own, could IT teams fully control enterprise network and security. But as businesses evolved and networks expanded to include cloud applications and remote users, handling all this became too complicated, too expensive, too slow.

The price enterprises pay for point products, isn’t just the obvious financial cost, but the complexity and burden of dealing with vendor evaluation, procurement, integration, maintenance and troubleshooting of multiple individual components. This complexity also results in lack of control.

If you are a CIO or IT manager and find yourself weighed down by these network and security challenges, then this document may be helpful. It describes how to avoid integrating multiple point solutions and simply move your business forward.

Download: Connecting to a Cloud Datacenter

Don’t Let Cloud Migration Derail Your Enterprise Network


We know what we want — secure, affordable, and predictable access to cloud datacenters from any site or geography. Neither MPLS nor the public Internet can give us that. One is too expensive and rigid, the other too unpredictable and unsecure.  But what if we could replace or augment MPLS with an affordable global enterprise backbone that:

  • connects all sites, cloud resources, and mobile users

  • provides direct cloud datacenter connectivity

  • eliminates Internet unpredictability

  • converges security functions into the network


 

This whitepaper describes how to address your cloud connectivity requirements, and overcome the limitations of MPLS or the Internet.
