Why is a Management Platform required to get Real Benefits out of SD-WAN?
Many readers will be familiar with how the SD-WAN functions and its core advantages, namely the automation, increased ROI, better security, and centralized control it provides for complex, distributed heterogeneous networks, enabling agile and real-time application traffic management for businesses.
While SD-WAN was designed to provide a wide range of benefits, it can add to the complexity of managing and orchestrating communications and workflows across a large number of users and SD-WAN devices deployed by the organization in various locations.
If you want to dynamically provision and centrally control distributed edge sites based upon your business policies, SD-WAN Manager is the way forward.
What is an SD-WAN Manager?
An SD-WAN Manager offers virtual device administration for all associated SD-WAN Edges, ensuring safe connection and consistent security for mobile users and branch offices. This includes, but is not limited to, configuration and activation, IP address management, and pushing down policies onto SD-WAN Edges.
Provision of a centralized view of the entire network in a single pane of glass allows administrators and security teams to identify users, devices, and endpoints across a distributed SD-WAN, enforce access and security policies and provide consistent security capabilities across multiple geographical locations
