Zscaler and SD-WAN

Demand for bandwidth in enterprise branch offices is increasing with the increased use of cloud applications, collaboration tools, and video. Because MPLS is so expensive, enterprises that require additional bandwidth need to leverage the Internet where possible without backhauling to a centralized DMZ.

SD-WAN solutions enable an integrated WAN implementation that can fully utilize Internet and MPLS connections simultaneously. Each link is monitored for packet loss and latency to enable policy-based routing based on application requirements. SD-WAN solutions are integrated with Zscaler through a GRE or IPsec tunnel to provide comprehensive security, visibility, control, and data protection for employees going directly to the Internet. With the combined solution, enterprise branch offices are able to manage the surge of cloud and Internet traffic without backhauling to the centralized DMZ in the data center, using an agile hybrid WAN architecture for network transformation along with robust security.
