Cloud-delivered, autonomous SD-WAN
Easily adopt an end-to-end SD-WAN architecture with natively integrated, world-class security and connectivity


SD-Wan Banner

Software-defined wide area network (or Software-Defined WAN or SD-WAN) is a virtualized service that connects and extends enterprise networks over large geographic distances.

What is SD-WAN

Software-defined WAN is a new way to orchestrate routing over any mix of WAN connections - like broadband, MPLS and LTE. It improves your Total Cost of Ownership and makes the WAN much easier to deploy and manage.


Secure SD-WAN by Palo Alto Networks

Palo Alto Networks SD-WAN offering lets you easily adopt an end-to-end SDWAN architecture with natively integrated, world-class security and connectivity. Using Prisma™ Access as the SD-WAN hub, you can optimize the performance of your entire network. This minimizes latency and ensures reliability, resulting in an exceptional user experience at the branches. You can consume our secure Prisma Access SD-WAN hub as a service, eliminating the complexity of building your SDWAN hub infrastructure, or you can build the hub and interconnect infrastructure yourself using Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls. Regardless of your deployment model, our tight integration will allow you to manage security and SD-WAN on a single, intuitive interface.

Limitations of legacy SD-WAN approaches

SD-WAN solutions today are unable to easily adapt as organizations transform their networks.


Limited app visibility

Limited app visibility

Layer 3 packet-based policies limit app visibility and app-based networking policies.

Simplify

Manual operations

Ineffective scaling and manual interventions are required, increasing administrative overhead.

Bolt-on branch

Bolt-on branch products

Multiple point products are required to achieve both security and connectivity, increasing cost and complexity.
