Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

DIY or Managed SD-WAN?

In this joint webinar, Versa Networks and S-NET will discuss and compare the benefits of both a DIY SD-WAN and Managed SD-WAN approach.

Enterprises rely on the WAN for connectivity between branches, data centers and clouds. The complexity of the WAN has grown and with-it management and operations. Many enterprise businesses look to SD-WAN to solve their connectivity and complexity woes.

Is the simplicity and automation that comes with SD-WAN enough to reduce the current complexity many enterprise IT operators are facing?

With many services now being offered as-a-Service (XaaS) the thought of moving WAN management to a managed services model is being evaluated for enterprise businesses across all verticals.

  • Accelerating Digital Transformation with Secure SD-WAN Recorded: Apr 2 2020 58 mins
    Michael Wynston, Director of Network and Architecture at Fiserv
    Every organization aspires to become a digital enterprise and moving to multiple public clouds is a key component of a digital transformation journey. However, it’s not necessarily motivated by cost reduction or gaining instantaneous compute and storage capacity, but rather it’s motivated by virtualized services, or the need for flexible and scalable CRM, UCaaS and other real-time application services that business units are using to gain the digital transformation effect.

    The Wide Area Network (WAN) or edge network has been the anchor of distributed computing organizations worldwide for decades, but the imperative to adopt multi-cloud and SaaS with embedded security, both on premises and cloud-based, are the core underpinnings of the contemporary digital Enterprise.

    However, the WAN edge digital journey to multi-cloud adds newfound complexity to conventional networking and security infrastructure. To deliver business agility with the highest network availability and uniform security, a superior application user quality of experience and resilient, redundant WAN performance requires a reimagination of the corporate network edge.

    Join Versa and Fiserv as senior executives outline two distinct journeys of successfully deploying the optimal solution for the new WAN and key criteria for qualifying Secure SD-WAN in support of digital transformation strategies.

    + What are the design and operational considerations for Secure SD-WAN?
    + Benefits to managed Secure SD-WAN vs DIY given the diverse range of enterprise business drivers, architectural preferences, and operations structures
    + Architectural options for deploying security for a multi-cloud/SaaS enterprise

    What You’ll Learn

    + How to determine the right consumption model: DIY or Managed SD-WAN
    + Why Secure SD-WAN is foundational to edge connectivity and application services
    + Strategic imperatives to driving digital transformation strategies with a fully virtualized edge network

  • Protecting the business with SD-WAN segmentation Recorded: Sep 21 2017 33 mins
    Robert McBride, Director of Enterprise and Telco Solutions
    Guest Wi-Fi services, partner networks and multi-tenancy all are drivers to segment the branch and WAN infrastructure to secure and prevent unauthorized access of corporate assets. However, what is segmentation when it comes to the next-generation branch architecture and SD-WAN? Is it really only VLANs and encrypted traffic?

    Attend this webinar to understand what is segmentation and how it is applied to software-defined WAN to address:

    •Optimal application experience
    •Secure and authorized connectivity
    •Third party network access and integration
    •Local guest services like Wi-Fi
  • How Secure is SD-WAN? Recorded: Sep 7 2017 42 mins
    Sunil Ravi, Distinguished Security Architect & Robert McBride, Director of Enterprise and Telco Solutions
    Direct Internet access (DIA) increases the exposure of the enterprise branch and WAN, requiring IT to deploy next-generation security beyond just the data center. SD-WAN provides secure connectivity between sites but can it adequately protect the branch with just a stateful firewall?

    Malware, ransomware, viruses and DDOS attacks are on the rise and impacting businesses globally. How can IT deploy advanced branch security with SD-WAN without compromising on performance, security and cost?
  • Software-Defining More than Just the WAN Recorded: Aug 17 2017 29 mins
    Robert McBride, Director of Enterprise and Telco Solutions
    Software-defining the WAN is just one component to simplifying and cost reducing the enterprise branch. But why limit your transformation to just the WAN? Are you aware of the additional appliance and service consolidation that you can achieve when you look beyond just WAN connectivity? Have you considered the implications of security when it comes to direct Internet access (DIA), and the complexity that it can add?

    Join us for this live webinar as we discuss how a software-defined branch (SD-Branch) is the logical step in your WAN/branch transformation.

    In this webinar, you will come to understand:

    •Implications of security due to SD-WAN-enabled direct Internet access
    •Operational and financial benefits of virtualizing the full branch
    •How SD-WAN is only one part of your next-generation branch and WAN architecture
