Managed SD-WAN

Cost-effectively empower your network with an agile, reliable, and application-aware SD-WAN

 

The Value of Managed SD-WAN is Clear

Any good CIO recognizes the move to the cloud, the rise of bandwidth-intensive enterprise applications, and the shift to more remote workers requires them to rethink their corporate networks. Many companies are considering software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) technology to maximize their available bandwidth while boosting overall network performance.

Ripping out a corporate WAN based on MPLS and replacing it with SD-WAN sounds good in theory, but is impractical and would create more problems than solutions. That’s why so many companies are choosing a managed, hybrid approach to SD-WAN. A recent survey and analysis from IDG explains why implementing a Masergy Managed SD-WAN is advantageous for the enterprise.

Imagine your network designed at the intersection of applications and users.

Your network is your application delivery platform. Enterprise applications drive employee productivity and accelerate business growth. Today, increased adoption of public cloud services, ubiquity of broadband access, and new specialized applications are among the key trends driving digital transformation in the enterprise.

As your applications migrate to the cloud, your network must be agile, reliable, and efficiently respond to the performance needs your employees (especially those working in branch offices and on mobile platforms) expect. How can you optimize your global WAN to deliver enterprise performance without sacrificing network visibility?

Masergy Managed SD-WAN solutions deliver the benefits of a low-latency global network with dynamic app performance, zero-touch provisioning, and built-in analytics and service controls. Adding Masergy Managed SD-WAN to your network enables customizable access options to your locations to avoid the risks of an all-or-nothing solution.

Seamlessly integrated with our unique and innovative software defined virtual private network (SD-VPN) solutions, hybrid SD-WAN deployments are just as easy as internet-only deployments. With Masergy Managed SD-WAN solutions, you can add locations to your network more quickly and cost effectively than ever before.
