WAN Edge Infrastructure allows for network connectivity from various locations to access resources in private and public data centers.
To qualify for inclusion in the WAN Edge Infrastructure category, a product must:
Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) technology is reshaping the modern enterprise network by providing improved performance, reduced costs, and enhanced security. With an SD-WAN solution that combines real-time path selection, edge routing, stateful firewall, end-to-end QoS, and WAN optimization, you can deliver the reliability and efficiency your business demands.
Barracuda's Cloud Generation Firewalls redefine the role of the Firewall from a perimeter security solution to a distributed network optimization solution that scales across any number of locations and applications, connects on-premises and cloud infrastructures, and helps organizations transform their business.
Cato Networks provides organizations with a cloud-based and secure global SD-WAN. Cato delivers an integrated networking and security platform that securely connects all enterprise locations, people, and data. The Cato Cloud cuts MPLS costs, improves performance between global locations, eliminates branch appliances, provides secure Internet access everywhere, and seamlessly integrates mobile users and cloud datacenters into the WAN. Based in Tel Aviv, Israel, Cato Networks was founded in 2015 by cybersecurity luminary Shlomo Kramer, who previously cofounded Check Point Software Technologies and Imperva, and Gur Shatz, who previously cofounded Incapsula. The Cato Cloud connects all the enterprise network elements, including branch locations, the mobile workforce, and physical and cloud datacenters, into a global, encrypted and optimized SD-WAN in the cloud. With all WAN and Internet traffic consolidated in the cloud, Cato applies a set of security services to protect all traffic at all times.
The Cybera Network Services Platform applies software-defined networking principles to modernize the Wide-Area-Network (WAN) into a unique form of SD-WAN. This approach dramatically reduces your networking costs while optimizing application performance, enhancing your brand protection, and accelerating your speed-to-market.
FatPipe's Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) products provide solutions for an easy migration to hybrid WAN. Symphony with Orchestrator delivers companies the ability to centrally manage their WANs (Wide Area Network), manage branch office configuration and deploy appliances with zero-touch installation.
FatPipe Networks' WAN Optimization technology offers the highest performance level of WAN Optimization and optimization available using patented and patent pending technology. With FatPipe WAN Optimization, you can significantly boost your Wide Area Network performance. This is possible through acceleration of your applications, better utilization of your current WAN infrastructure that would ultimately result in saving you thousands of dollars a year on additional hardware, software and bandwidth costs. FatPipe WAN Optimization appreciably increases WAN utilization, providing effective use of WAN bandwidth by caching/compressing that sharply reduces redundant data on a WAN.
FortiGate SD-WAN replaces separate WAN routers, WAN optimization, and security devices with a single solution that is application-aware, offers automatic WAN path control and multi-broadband support. It improves application performance, reduces WAN Operating expenses and minimizes management complexity.
Forcepoint's network security products combine latest in software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) with the industry's top-rated next generation firewall (NGFW) security, all managed at enterprise scale from a single policy-based console. It is used by organizations of all sizes in retail, hospitality and financial services around the globe
The vSRX offers the same features as our physical SRX Series firewalls but in a virtualized form factor for delivering security services that scale to match network demand. It offers the same features as the SRX appliance, including core firewall, robust networking, full next-gen capabilities, and automated life-cycle management. Handling speeds up to 100 Gbps, the vSRX is the industry's fastest virtual firewall.
The WAAS system consists of a set of devices called wide area application engines (WAEs) that work together to optimize TCP traffic over your network. When client and server applications attempt to communicate with each other, the network intercepts and redirects this traffic to the WAEs so that they can act on behalf of the client application and the destination server. The WAEs examine the traffic and use built-in application policies to determine whether to optimize the traffic or allow it to pass through your network unoptimized.
