The SD-WAN market has traditionally offered a binary choice when it comes to 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. Why not get the best of both worlds?
With a co-managed solution, you can maintain more control and share in more of the management responsibilities. Many companies want to offload SD-WAN responsibilities, but they are bound by compliance rules and regulations that require them to retain direct control over the network. In this case, co-management is necessary, 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.
Allow your IT organization to share the work of managing your business, network, and firewall policies. Beyond standard configurations, you can customize rules to meet your specific network and application requirements. You'll 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.
