Organizations are deploying more apps in the cloud, bringing more devices in branch offices and consuming more bandwidth. Traditional connectivity options like multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) can be costly as well as slow to provision, and offer limited bandwidth in many locations.
Software-defined wide area networking, or SD-WAN, is what many organizations are looking to. But moving from MPLS to SD-WAN, organizations end up compromising on security, end-to-end performance, and simplicity of operation. With Palo Alto Networks, you get world-class security integrated with SD-WAN, a high-performance backbone with Prisma Access, and simplicity of consuming secure connectivity as-a-service.
Choose the deployment option that’s best for your organization.
Secure SD-WAN delivered as a service from Prisma AccessPrisma Access, a secure access service edge (SASE), delivers SD-WAN as a service from the cloud. With Prisma Access, you can optimize performance and eliminate the need to build your own SD-WAN hubs and interconnects.
Secure SD-WAN delivered using Palo Alto Networks appliancesOur next-generation firewalls operate as SD-WAN edge devices in the branch and as an SD-WAN hub in a central location. SD-WAN features can be simply enabled and centrally managed on a single interface via Panorama network security management.
