SD-WAN? What is it and why companies need an upgrade?

SD-WAN stands for software-defined networking in a wide area network.  SD-WAN simplifies the management and operation of a WAN by decoupling the networking hardware from its control mechanism. It is a technology that distributes network traffic across wide area networks that uses software-defined networking concepts to automatically find the most effective way to route traffic to and from branch offices and data center sites.

In this world wherein technology is changing so fast. Companies need to meet every single computer related aspect. From traffic to visibility to management to cost. Though, Hybrid WAN is still ideal however, acquiring or upgrading to SD-WAN have lots of benefits that will truly help the companies more. One good comparison is: using Hybrid WAN, when companies need to change the configuration in Hybrid WAN, IT’s need to do a manual process. Unlike with SD-WAN, the network-device management can easily  access it from a certain device, which will allow the network managers  to create, change, deploy business policies and security protocols from a central location.
