Masergy, the software-defined network and cloud platform for the digital enterprise, has launched new SD-WAN ‘Work From Anywhere’ solutions.
The new offerings extend Masergy’s managed SD-WAN secure solutions to the remote workforce, supporting their network connections with built-in security, dual-link redundancy, load balancing, and dynamic traffic steering capabilities. Businesses of all sizes use Masergy’s SD-WAN to provide secure and reliable cloud application performance to office employees, and now users at home or on the go can have access to the same level of security and performance.
Terry Traina (pictured above), CTO at Masergy, explained, “Masergy’s ‘Work From Anywhere’ solutions serve as just the latest example of how we are leveraging our cloud and network platform to serve businesses and employees regardless of their location. When resources must be available anywhere and data must be secured everywhere, Masergy is uniquely positioned to meet the needs of multi-cloud, work-from-home companies.
Masergy’s ‘Work From Anywhere’ solutions have several features and benefits. These include a zero-touch-provisioning experience to ensure setup is quick and simple for remote users, as well as one unified client portal – simplifying management and optimisation for IT managers. The solution can also be bundled with unified communications as a service, WiFi-enabled video phones, and comprehensive security services.
John Burke, principal research analyst and CIO, Nemertes Research, added, “As many initially temporary work-from-home arrangements are made permanent, the shift to the cloud is broadening and accelerating. Enterprises need scalable, distributed access from anywhere, to anywhere, with great performance. This new WAN backbone centers on SD-WAN and leverages its advantages everywhere. With 61 percent of organisations deploying SD-WAN today and another 14 percent planning to in the next 18 months, IT leaders clearly consider it critical to sustaining success in the hybrid multi-cloud and work-from-home world.”
