The SD-WAN market has traditionally offered a binary choice when it comes to the deployment and management of network services. Either you take a do-it-yourself approach, tackling installation, maintenance, and daily management using your own IT staff or you opt for the fully managed service, paying the provider to handle everything for you. The problem is, these two options force you to make difficult decisions around cost and control.
Many companies want to offload SD-WAN responsibilities, but they are bound by compliance rules that require them to retain direct control over the network. In this case, a third option is needed, where IT leaders can relieve their team of the time-consuming administrative tasks, while still having the ability to make changes to SD-WAN policies and configurations when necessary.
Masergy's co-managed solutions allow IT organizations to share the work of managing their business, network, and firewall policies. Beyond standard configurations, you can customize rules to meet your specific network and application requirements. You get the keys to our management portal, where the SD-WAN Orchestrator’s self-service controls allow you to drive changes to network and security policies, all with end-to-end visibility into performance.
Opt for a co-managed service with these Masergy solutions:
"The nature of SD-WAN solutions makes it easier for the provider to share management with enterprise IT staff. They can open some or all tools to the customer while putting guardrails on access to prevent disasters."
— John Burke, Nemertes Research
