ESG Technical Review: Securing an App-centric SD-WAN with CloudGenix CloudBlades

The importance of minimizing your network’s exposure to security risk is real, yet compromising application performance or availability is not an option. End users expect and deserve the best application experience possible.

ESG performed a hands-on evaluation of CloudGenix CloudBlades, focusing on the integration of cloud-based security services.

  • CloudGenix CloudBlades enable organizations to secure an SD-WAN network while minimizing both capital and operational expenses

  • Organizations can use CloudBlades to integrate third-party cloud-based services with SD-WAN capabilities while enabling high application performance and availability at geographically dispersed remote offices/branch offices

Why SD-WAN Alone Is Not Enough

The last 10 years have been filled with massive shifts in the way applications and infrastructure are built, deployed, and managed. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) claims to provide a solution for these shifts by allowing the user to define policies for how application traffic is forwarded. In order to recognize the full potential of SD-WAN, however, businesses need a solution that fundamentally understands application performance.

Download this white paper to learn how SD-WAN can provide a solution for the issues businesses are facing today:

  • How do we take advantage of cloud computing and SaaS applications?

  • How do we realize a better user experience for our remote office users?

  • How can we reduce cost for our remote offices?

Five Requirements for SD-WAN

SD-WAN is a fundamentally transformational technology, so it comes as no surprise that myriad vendors are claiming to provide an SD-WAN solution, hoping to capitalize on the value proposition that SD-WAN provides, even if peddling an incomplete solution. Our goal in this manifesto is to describe in no uncertain terms what SD-WAN is and the capabilities a solution must include to be considered an SD-WAN solution.

  • Gain more agility

  • Reduce costs

  • Simplify management

  • Improve overall user experience and maximize employee productivity

Meet Growing Network Demands

Diamond Crystal Brands is an industry leader in right-size packaging, wet and dry-blended products, and custom printing. To meet growth demands, Diamond Crystal Brands needed a modern setup that provided a reliable network coverage to their offices in four states. Since they worked with a telco infrastructure partner, the IT team did not have visibility into the network as it grew. They also wanted to utilize more cloud-based applications for better security, compliance, agility and performance .

Learn how Diamond Crystal Brands met their growing network demands, including:

  • Unconstrained and highly reliable WAN

  • Deep application, network visibility

  • Systemwide analytics

Modernize Branch Office Infrastructure and Save $150K in First Year

Yancey Bros. —the nation’s oldest Caterpillar dealer supplier for construction, road building, mining, agriculture and other industries — had been using an SD-WAN solution bundled through their telco provider but knew that continuing to use a single provider of expensive MPLS connectivity was no longer a viable solution for their increasingly complex network. They wanted to work with multiple partners that could supply flexibility, reliability, backup redundancy and low-cost connectivity. They also needed better visibility into network data in order to adjust policies and route appropriately.
