Job Description

Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a transformational approach to simplify branch office networking and assure optimal application performance. Software-Defined WAN has its roots in Software-Defined Networking (SDN), the underlying principle of which is to abstract the network hardware and transport characteristics from the applications that use the network. Our technology enables you to support application growth, network agility, and simplified branch implementations while delivering secure optimized access to cloud data centers and applications.

SD-WAN is evolving from simplified cloud management, assured performance WAN Infrastructure to a Client to Cloud to Container story with intrinsic security. It is no longer an "edge-to-edge technology". It is expanding to go deeper into the branch or home or frankly anywhere; from individual clients to the cloud, and all the way to the application container, wherever it sits, in the public or private cloud.
