Supporting Increased Demand for SD-WAN
According to the Chief Analyst of Enterprise Services at Ovum, Mike Sapien, the industry is seeing an increased demand for SD-WAN tools across a wide range of industries and verticals. From their surveys into the marketplace, Ovum has discovered that security is by far the most pressing concern for deployments in SD-WAN, as customers want to unlock the application benefits provided with this infrastructure, but often lack the internal resources required to keep their network secure against a range of attack vectors.
Masergy is currently in a unique position to offer a differentiated SD-WAN Managed solution for the marketplace, with advanced security services for customers from a range of backgrounds. According to the Chief Digital Officer at Masergy, Terry Traina, as leading enterprises continue to embrace the strategic advantages of a robust SD-WAN solution, they’re also seeing how important it is to secure their networks. The new Masergy bundles combine SD-WAN performance and security into one efficient package.
