The opportunities for business transformation at the intersection of hybrid work and hybrid cloud are immense, but they’re matched by the challenge of supporting more distributed, dynamic workloads on the WAN.
IT must provide connectivity for hybrid users, secure and connect mission-critical applications in the cloud, and support a vast array of connected devices, all while ensuring an optimal experience for every interaction.
Providing the connectivity, security, and automation required to simplify these networks is at the core of our vision, and we’re excited to announce that Cisco SD-WAN has been named a Leader in in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide SD-WAN Infrastructure 2021 Vendor Assessment (doc #US47279821, November 2021) In this quantitative and qualitative assessment, the IDC MarketScape recognized Cisco’s platform leadership and strategic vision for the Cisco SD-WAN portfolio.
Our SD-WAN solutions are designed to help organizations of all sizes navigate their own journey to a hybrid cloud model and give network and cloud architecture teams the end-to-end security, governance, and policy management necessary to protect enterprise data as it travels across sites.
And as more application traffic migrates outside corporate borders, Cisco SD-WAN solutions provide better visibility, predictability, and automated troubleshooting across the digital experience.
