The proliferation of networking and security devices in each branch results in decentralized management and added complexity. Organizations require a more direct model for accessing cloud apps. But, that comes at a hefty price – it increases the risk for cybersecurity threats to enter the corporate network. Citrix SD-WAN makes it possible with a built-in edge security stack allowing the internet to be a trusted connection method for the enterprise network. Its next-generation firewall capabilities protect against zero-day threats, malware and prevent undesirable or inappropriate content and applications from being accessed. IT can readily deliver consistent security policies from a cloud-based, single-pane-of-glass orchestrator reducing the inevitable complexities stemming from deploying, configuring, and managing multiple products from multiple vendors.
