Secure SD-WAN: Network to the Cloud

Updated: Dec 5, 2023

The significance of network architecture in the context of cloud migration cannot be overstated. In a new report, ‘Secure SD-WAN: Network to the Cloud’, Oliver Mallon, Head of Solutions at Viatel Technology Group, shares his valuable insights on unlocking the potential of cloud-ready networks.

Oliver examines the inefficiencies and limitations of traditional hub-and-spoke network model, once the cornerstone of Wide Area Network (WAN) architectures. He highlights the evolution of Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) as the successor, providing a solution that not only efficiently directs network traffic but also addresses issues related to user experience and security.

Of particular focus is Oliver’s exploration of how SD-WAN ensures the secure and efficient routing of user traffic to storage and compute workloads in the cloud. This vital aspect is a game-changer in the realm of modern networking.

Sharing the journeys of valued customers like St Francis Credit Union, Cpl, and Centric Health readers will witness the tangible benefits of adopting SD-WAN in real-world scenarios. These success stories demonstrate how organisations have harnessed the potential of SD-WAN and how it became the cornerstone of cloud migration.
