Today’s cloud-connected enterprise demands a new WAN architecture, an SD-WAN, to meet the performance and security requirements for SaaS and IaaS. As SD-WAN technology evolves, new levels of automation, security and architectural simplification have emerged. First-packet application classification is an advanced capability that automatically steers trusted SaaS and web traffic directly to the internet and unknown or suspicious traffic to a next-generation firewall for additional security inspection.
Further advancements harness machine learning and AI to enable adaptive, application-centric traffic handling and pervasive security. With automation, machine learning, and AI, the Self-Driving WAN can be realized.
Strategic IT leaders are under pressure to balance the complexities of managing legacy infrastructure while accelerating the migration to the cloud which can compromise their effectiveness. Silver Peak offers a complete range of best-in-class hardware, software and cloud-based WAN solutions that provide secure and reliable virtual overlays to connect users to applications with the flexibility to use any combination of underlying transport without compromising application performance. This results in greater business agility and lower costs. Watch this video to see how your organization can leverage Silver Peak solutions.
