The Essential SD-WAN Checklist

With so many SD-WAN solutions to choose from, how do you decide?


Choosing SD-WAN

How do you select the best Enterprise SD-WAN for your needs?

Be mindful of common pitfalls & trade-offs. Brownfield Integration: SD-WAN roll-out never happens all at once. Look for SD-WAN that provides enterprise-class routing to support your transition at every step of the way. Cost vs. Performance: More capacity doesn’t guarantee performance. Look for SD-WAN that provides advanced app acceleration to overcome latency, jitter and packet loss. User Experience vs. Security: Giving users direct branch-to-Internet access expands your threat perimeter. Look for SD-WAN that provides next-gen network security services

Accelerate business velocity with SD-WAN

Conventional routers are too rigid, error prone and costly to manage. SD-WAN streamlines network operations with centralized management based on app-centric policies. SD-WAN path steering dynamically selects the best transport – MPLS, Internet Broadband or LTE – based on performance SLAs and real-time circuit conditions. SD-WAN unifies hybrid cloud connectivity and operations with a secure network fabric that spans branches, data centers and multi-cloud environments. SD-WAN accelerates roll-out of new sites and apps with zero-touch provisioning and scalable policy templates.

Accelerate any app to any user over any network

No amount of bandwidth can address the performance impact of latency on applications WAN optimization and app acceleration overcome latency, over-subscription and poor link quality Riverbed SaaS Accelerator increases app performance by up to 10x In the office, at home or on the go, Riverbed Client Accelerator assures exceptional user experience Riverbed delivers end-to-end application performance with WAN optimization, cloud acceleration, SaaS acceleration and client acceleration.

Secure your branch as you expand the perimeter

Giving branch users direct Internet access expands your attack surface Riverbed SD-WAN fortifies remote sites with integrated network security and flexible 3rd party service chaining Leverage powerful native capabilities including next-gen firewall, IPS, malware protection and unified threat management Integrate 3rd party security services at the branch or in the cloud leveraging extensible uCPE service chaining.
