In today’s fast-paced digital landscape, businesses face a dual challenge: optimising network performance for distributed workforces while maintaining robust cyber-security measures. 

As of 2023, Security Magazine states that 72% of CISOs believe that hybrid and remote work has proven to have a negative impact on their organisations’ security posture. The age of hybrid work also proposes new challenges, trying to keep users connected while also upholding a strong security posture. 

Cisco and Outcomex, leaders in networking solutions, offer a potent combination to address both needs in this day and age – Cisco SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Networking) and SASE (Secure Access Service Edge).

The true strength of Cisco’s offering lies in the seamless integration of SD-WAN and SASE. By combining the agility and flexibility of SD-WAN with the robust security of SASE, businesses can unlock unprecedented efficiency and resilience. 

What Cisco calls the “patchwork approach” means that the more products involved, the more complicated your IT environment can be – the old ways are no longer applicable. With Cisco’s integrated solution, organisations can manage both networking and security functions from “a simple, secure, single pane of glass”. This unified approach streamlines operations, reduces risk, and enables proactive threat response.

Furthermore, as businesses continue to rapidly change and expand, Cisco offers unmatched scalability. Whether scaling bandwidth to accommodate growing workloads or deploying additional security services to counter emerging threats, organisations can do so with confidence and at less of a cost – knowing that their infrastructure can adapt to meet their needs.

By unlocking the combined power of agility, security, and scalability, Cisco is helping organisations redefine what’s possible in networking and cybersecurity.

Cisco’s SD-WAN seamlessly integrates with SASE to provide a unified networking and security solution. SD-WAN centralises control over connections and allows organisations to prevent external risks, optimising performance and reducing costs across users’ various working locations. Paired with SASE, it extends its capabilities – ensuring consistent security regulations while maintaining network agility and scalability, offering organisations secure connectivity in a dynamic digital landscape.
