At the beginning of the year, the Gartner predicted that 60 percent enterprise networks would transition from legacy WANs to SD-WANs by next year was proven false as the COVID-19 outbreak accelerated businesses to adopt SDNs faster than the projection. In today’s highly competitive networking arena, enterprises are seeking a robust solution capable of helping them address their most prevalent networking challenges in an effective and affordable manner. Simultaneously, as the pandemic continues to drive digital adoption within businesses, SDN-WAN deployments are becoming a top priority due to their ability to offer unmatched network transparency and scalability. From a cost standpoint, SDNs are helping organizations eliminate expenses on building or upgrading data centers, which are highly susceptible to data breaches from the ever-evolving cybercriminals.
Furthermore, with the rise of big data and cloud-first network infrastructures, SD-WAN solution vendors are offering capabilities that can support and enhance the efficiencies of IoT and Edge Computing deployments, which are gaining significance in the current marketplace. Above all, SD-WANs provide organizations with the ability to view their entire network data, including devices connected, as well as monitor the traffic while deploying stringent security policies.
Over the last few months, an illustrious panel from CIO Advisor APAC has shortlisted organizations that are at the forefront of delivering robust SD-WAN solutions. This list is intended to gauge the different solution offerings in the networking sector to help enterprises operational efficiencies.
