While enterprise adoption of cloud services continues to accelerate, most of these services are public cloud-based and accessed via the public internet. The flexibility and agility achieved by cloud services is compelling, but enterprises cannot disregard the risks of exposing their traffic to internet security threats.
Slow or inconsistent connections are a major impediment to widespread cloud adoption. For organizations with highly distributed workforces, end users often experience latency accessing services hosted in far-away, offshore locations. Direct Cloud Connect Service provides a direct connection from our SD-WAN platform to major cloud providers. This service allows your traffic to bypass the public internet, avoiding security threats as well as ensuring end-to-end performance when accessing cloud-based resources.
Key benefits of Direct Cloud Connect are:
- ‘on-net’ experience for enterprise end-users globally via our SD-WAN platform
- no degradation of end-to-end performance typically experienced over the public internet
- enterprise grade security – clients can avoid typical online threats by taking traffic off the public internet
Our cloud-optimized SD-WAN platform gives you visibility of the assets, data flows, and security risks in your cloud-based workloads and applications, and puts you in control of traffic to applications and infrastructure, regardless of their network attributes or geographical location.
