Minimize Connectivity Costs While Ensuring Application Delivery
to Branch Offices with WAN Connectivity Solutions
Data center consolidation and the global use of critical enterprise applications by remote branches and facilities are two of the stronger trends in IT. Wide area network (WAN) connectivity supports this shift and allows for distributed application delivery between branch offices and the data center.
But there are common problems facing branch office users using WANs: unreliable Internet connectivity and slow response times. This less-than-optimal application delivery at remote sites comes from a number of factors: traffic overloads, bandwidth bottlenecks, link failures. These can result in incomplete transactions and denied user access.
Add to this the need to ensure trusted and secure branch office access, while also protecting against increasing security vulnerabilities of web-based applications, and the result is a daunting distributed application delivery challenge.
Delivering Distributed Global Applications
Radware’s WAN connectivity solution offers optimal remote application delivery over multiple connections of various types to branch offices and facilities worldwide while scaling back costs.
The combination of LinkProof and LinkProof Branch provides remote sites with end-to-end availability, performance and security for business-critical applications that reside in the data center. By ensuring fast, economical and secure distributed application delivery from headquarters to branch offices, this solution lets you choose the connectivity performance/cost you need at every point across the enterprise.
Additionally it can facilitate an easy migration from expensive private networks to a mixed private and VPN-based network using high-speed and low-cost links. It does this by providing full control over application traffic redirection to each of the links according to the application’s security and bandwidth requirements.
This cohesive solution brings together the combined functionality of
- Multi-link WAN connection traffic management
- Access control
- Bandwidth management
- Site-to-site compression
- Integrated VPN gateway
By optimizing distributed applications across remote and branch offices, this robust enterprise-wide solution provides cost savings by dramatically reducing connectivity costs and bandwidth consumption.
