As companies shift to the cloud, many are embracing Microsoft Office 365. But traditional wide area networks (WANs) were never designed for the Office 365 or the cloud. Today’s WAN adds too much latency, depending on deployment. Security becomes an issue with branch offices. Costs can escalate substantially.
Join us on September 13th, 1:00 PM EST or September 14th, 10:00 AM BST, as Steve Garson, president of SD-WAN Experts, and Dave Greenfield, secure networking evangelist at Cato, take a practical look at how to build the right WAN for your Office 365 deployment.
During this webinar you will learn:
Why traditional networks are a poor fit for Office 365
What components of Office 365 cause problems for networks and why?
What are the 5 architectures for deploying Office 365?
How do the 5 architectures differ in terms of security, performance, reliability, and costs?
What are the best practices for deploying Office 365 across the WAN?

As more and more applications moved to the Cloud it became clear that the network needed to change to accommodate new levels of agility and automation. Over the past few years the concept of a Software-defined Network (SDN) has emerged as a way to adapt to new requirements. One of the primary ways customers are evolving their networks is by building a Software-defined Wide Area Network, or SD-WAN, to more effectively connect users to applications, particularly those in the Cloud.
During this webinar, learn how Interroll, a global leader in providing high-quality core products for internal logistics and automation, evolved its network to improve the delivery of applications such as Microsoft 365, Sharepoint, SAP and Autodesk Computer Aided Design (CAD) by building its own SD-WAN.
Giuseppe Genovesi, Head of Corporate IT at Interroll, will review how they went about selecting an SD-WAN overlay and the initial results they’ve seen to date. You will also find out how they avoided thousands of pounds a month in additional Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) costs by using broadband without compromising performance.
Attend this webinar to learn:
•How the branch and remote networking landscape is evolving
•How to connect your users to applications with greater flexibility and performance
•Details on how Interroll dramatically reduced their WAN costs and improved SaaS application performance in days
•What to look for when building an SD-WAN

The digital transformation is here, affecting business everywhere and requiring a retooling of legacy solutions. Networking needs to keep up but it relies on an architecture that has been in place for over three decades and that was not built to support the dramatic change.
To keep pace, networks are undergoing a massive overhaul, a lot of the momentum spurred by trends like IoT and enabling technologies like SD-WAN. Included in the overhaul is rethinking branch routers by separating routing capabilities from the physical box.
In this webinar, Zeus Kerravala of ZK Research takes a deep dive into how SD-WAN is ushering in an era of a routerless branch office.
If you are considering deploying SD-WAN in your network, you probably hear a lot about its benefits. But, you may be unsure what it will take to move from your legacy MPLS and VPN network to SD-WAN. What problems will you face and how will you tackle them?

SD-WAN represents a new and exciting opportunity to transform the costly and rigid enterprise WAN. It promises to make your wide area network more agile, boost available capacity, improve resiliency and user experience, and reduce MPLS costs.
Beyond these immediate benefits, enterprises need to address the changing role of the WAN itself. As enterprises increasingly move to the cloud, expand the mobile workforce, and need a secure path to the internet, the WAN must now support a growing set of business needs.

SD-WAN promises to make your network simple, agile, secure, optimized, global, and affordable. As you consider your options you may be looking to your legacy network service provider to “bundle” SD-WAN with the current service.
How agile and simple will your SD-WAN be if it works like the existing WAN services provided by legacy service providers? Will it be self-service or do you still need to open a ticket for every move, add, and change?
How will your security evolve to leverage direct Internet access at a branch? Can your service provider deliver cost-effective, easy-to-manage, network security anywhere you operate?
How will you connect remote and international locations into the SD-WAN? Will you still need to use expensive MPLS to guarantee latency and packet loss?
We want to share with you a vision for SD-WAN that was built to deliver on the 6 promises of SD-WAN.
Join Yishay Yovel, Vice President of Marketing for Cato Networks, to learn:
