To secure remote locations, you’ve had two difficult choices:
Backhaul traffic across expensive WAN connections.
- When all of your applications resided in the data center, it made sense to backhaul traffic from your remote locations. It was expensive and difficult—and resulted in slow user experience—but it was necessary for security and compliance.
Deploy appliances at all branches
- If you didn’t backhaul all your traffic, you’d need to deploy expensive appliances at each remote site. In this scenario, the costs of deploying and managing the boxes offset any savings associated with reducing backhaul costs.
