More transport options
What if there were multiple alternative routes available to drivers caught in a hypothetical network traffic jam? SD-WAN delivers such a benefit to applications on your network, through its support for commodity broadband, cellular (e.g., 4G LTE) connectivity and dedicated internet access, in addition to MPLS - reducing reliance on private MPLS only links.
- Because of the ability to use alternative transport types, your company experiences reduced WAN costs and scaled capacity through the use of lower-priced broadband connections.
Automated decision making
- Like Waze or Google Maps, an SD-WAN controller is always searching for the best possible routes. It might send traffic down a public or private connection depending on the current state of the network. The underlying transport does not matter as much as the path quality for your most demanding apps.
- With many everyday services moving to the cloud, it's important to have peace of mind that their workloads are as safe as possible from interception and data leakage. SD-WAN solutions provide encryption alongside various security integrations that protect cloud-bound traffic.
Centralized network visibility and management
- SD-WAN is essentially a software layer that automates the configuration of all edge routers. As such, it offers comprehensive insight into network conditions and enables quick, easy configuration as requirements evolve. Management is more streamlined compared to the lengthier, more ad hoc processes associated with MPLS-only WANs and network services can easily be aligned to user and application needs to support bandwidth intensive applications and workloads. Greater visibility also means maintained connectivity for improved business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities.
Improved branch deployments
- Improved application performance and quality of service for remote and branch workers along with the ability to add new locations without a lengthy deployment window. SD-WAN also offers reduced complexity & maintenance with simplified remote office CPE requirements.
SD-WAN with Versa Secure
Versa Secure provides a combination of SD-WAN and multi-layered security that is optimal for companies who need to utilize multi-cloud connectivity such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform from a centralized and secure location, or in a distributed model where every branch location receives direct and optimized cloud access with security.
- Increase your bandwidth and cloud experience, improve flexibility and decrease the cost of legacy WANs.
- Features next-generation firewall (NGFW), and unified threat management (UTM) services that protect the application and user activity across the enterprise WAN, branch, and provide/public clouds.
- Enable secure, scalable, and reliable enterprise-wide networking while increasing multi-cloud application performance and dramatically driving down costs.
- Real-time and historical visibility, baselining, correlation, prediction, and closed-loop feedback of your network. Analytics data provides policy-driven data logging, real-time and historical traffic visibility & anomaly detection, reporting for multiple network and security services.
SD-Internet with Bigleaf
Bigleaf SD-Internet is ideal for organizations that want to maintain control of their firewall appliance and rapidly deploy a solution to optimize Internet and cloud performance by dynamically choosing the best connection based on real-time usage and diagnostics, leveraging redundant connections for optimal traffic re-routing, failover and load balancing. Allow Bigleaf to automate QoS across your network by automatically identifying and prioritizing traffic for your business communications and applications and allow your team to focus on what they do best.
- Bigleaf’s owned-and-operated backbone network and plug-n-play router work together to deliver a resilient connection beyond your private LAN and WAN to and from wherever your traffic needs to go.
- Self-driving AI automatically identifies and adapts to changing circuit conditions, new traffic types, and traffic needs—fixing issues before they impact your users.
- Comprehensive dashboard visibility and actionable insights into your traffic and circuit performance over the full internet path to ensure performance and speed up troubleshooting.
Work from Home
- Keep non-business web traffic, such as streaming video and gaming, and less reliable residential Internet connections from impacting your business communications and applications.
Improved SaaS Performance
- Bigleaf’s Cloud Access Network peers with over 150 different cloud, content, and carrier networks that are co-located with the most popular SaaS and Cloud Storage providers such as AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure, bringing you closer to the data you need to access. Add auto-failover, and Dynamic QoS and let our system provide the foundation to get better reliability and performance for your company.
- Easy to install, easy to manage, and easy to integrate into your existing stack. Routers arrive ready to go, install outside of the firewall and connect in minutes for a game-changing improvement in performance with little to no impact on your day-to-day operations.
