Scaling SD-WAN in the new era of remote working
The consequences of the COVID-19 virus outbreak early 2020 have been severe to many businesses. Both customer and employee behaviours change, and secure connectivity become even more crucial for business continuity.

They often came with a lock-in to a single internet service provider (ISP). Requirements for flexibility and reduced costs have resulted in the usage of virtual private networking (VPN) setup over common internet connections on each site.
