Increased usage of cloud services has prompted many IT leaders to rethink their approaches to enterprise networking. Given that most organizations still have on-premises resources, any new approach should strive to ensure ubiquitous connectivity and create a seamless experience for employees and customers.
As a result, many organizations are considering SD-WAN to help consolidate their networking visibility and management of cloud and on-premises usage.
