Secure SD-WAN

Reviewing their BaaS security services

Future-proof your IT architecture: Network Connectivity with Built-in Security

If your company uses cloud-based applications, traditional Wide Area Network (WAN) services will become more complex, slow and costly, as time goes on. Switching to Secure SoftwareDefined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) will solve for your connectivity speed and reliability, but it does add complexity to network security and you’ll want to minimize risk. That’s why we created Secure SD-WAN, providing network connectivity and security in one.

Why it matters

Our Secure SD-WAN service is convenient and fully managed. With advanced monitoring tools, we proactively troubleshoot network and cybersecurity for you – at a fraction of the cost of traditional networks. With “zero-touch” provisioning, it’s easier to get our Secure SD-WAN systems up and running and updates are much faster than with traditional networks. And, since Secure SD-WAN uses broadband for customer site connectivity, it can be installed virtually anywhere. It’s that simple.

Most leading SD-WAN services don’t prioritize cybersecurity. Ours does. Powered by top-rated cybersecurity provider Fortinet, our Secure SD-WAN service combines several technologies from today’s most powerful WAN Edge devices: routing, load balancing, Quality of Service (QoS), traffic shaping and Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) cybersecurity. Using Fortinet’s cloud-based tools, our Secure SD-WAN solution automates service provisioning and implementation.

How it works

Our Secure SD-WAN is a hybrid wide-area network solution that integrates legacy WAN services with direct and secure branch-to-internet connectivity – bypassing the need to route all network traffic back to the main site. The result is faster connectivity and better performance.
