Transform your WAN with Secure Software-driven Networking
Plan-B has teamed up with Fortinet to deliver both security and networking capabilities in a unified industry-leading Secure SD-WAN solution

The Benefits of SD-WAN for your Business

As the use of business-critical, cloud-based applications and tools continues to increase, distributed businesses with multiple remote offices, are switching from performance-inhibited wide-area networks (WANs) to software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) architectures.

The Benefits of SD-WAN for your Business

SD-WAN offers business application steering, cost savings, and performance for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, as well as unified communication services.

Offering a network agnostic Secure SD-WAN, we are able to work with your business to implement the best solution – using either a fully-managed or co-managed service.

Plan B – Accenting the SD-WAN Positives

Despite New Zealand’s excellent network infrastructure, many companies are still paying high WAN costs with traditional carriers. Some have experienced applications slowing as users on the edge increasingly access cloud-based SaaS applications with traffic routed through head offices or centralised highly contended internet.

Others are seeing higher costs as they’re expected to manage multiple services of increased complexity, with increased security risks.

These are some of the issues SD-WAN is designed to address.

Selecting the right SD-WAN solution for a specific implementation sometimes requires a few compromises, but security should never be one of them.

There are several options for combining SD-WAN networking and advanced security, typically requiring that security is offloaded to separate box, Virtual Machine or the Cloud. There is only one solution that can truly be called Secure SD-WAN and that solution comes from Fortinet, the leader in network security.
