If your company is like most organizations today, your workforce is remote, working from home or small offices. Even your larger offices now feel like a series of branch offices that serve smaller groups of employees. To better serve the networking needs of today’s real-world, distributed workforce, MTM has just launched a Software Defined Wide Area Networking for Distributed Workforces (SD-WAN-DW) and managed services solution. I know, it’s a bit of a mouthful, but the idea behind it is solid.
With today’s distributed, anywhere, anytime workforce, it has become increasingly critical to provide a flexible and secure wide area networking solution that can be centrally managed from the cloud. We developed our SD-WAN-DW and managed services solution to enable your organization to recreate the IT experience of being in the office no matter where your workforce is located, whether they’re at headquarters, a branch or working-from-home.
The MTM SD-WAN-DW is built on Cisco’s WAN Edge and Meraki technologies to provide secure access, a seamless user experience, and end to end visibility when connecting to cloud applications. This empowers your organization’s IT teams to centrally manage a globally-distributed workforce – including branch offices as well as work-from-home employees — while also reducing costs.
