SDWAN REMOTE Relegates VPNs

04 October 2021

SDWAN REMOTE - the simple, secure, cloud-managed connectivity solution that enables remote employees to work from anywhere using any type of connections with superior application performance and reliability. SDWAN REMOTE starts from £15 per user per month and is a fully managed solution that is available for 10 users or more.

Corporate VPNs were only ever meant to cater for 10 - 15% of staff working off site. But today’s reality is that up to 100% of all staff may be required to work from home or remotely. This is where IT, finance and compliance teams start to uncover problems. Corporate VPNs are labour intensive to manage, expensive to upscale due to the requirement for VPN concentrators and VPN user issues can make a remote worker unproductive for days. Just like MPLS is not suitable to access Cloud applications and company VPNs were never designed for remote workers. Remote worker VPN support alone is stretching most IT departments to capacity. But these are not the only problems that VPN users face.
