Moving to the Azure cloud opens up new opportunities for enterprises.

They can take advantage of unlimited storage, dynamic compute power and continuous application delivery. But it can open a new set of challenges, as well. For example, traditional private WAN connections with SLAs aren’t as readily available and IT might feel like it’s opened up new fronts in the ongoing battle to secure their perimeter.

These challenges can now be overcome by using NetScaler SD-WAN in Azure. As shown below, NetScaler SD-WAN instances sit within compute instances in the Azure Cloud and terminate NetScaler SD-WAN virtual WAN connections. Now, enterprises can automatically build secure and always-on connections from any branch or Data Center, and take advantage of NetScaler SD-WAN’s ability to identify and optimize cloud traffic.
