The Netify Mind Map guide to SD WAN vendors has evolved and improved over the last decade. We initially launched the Mind Map as a guide to MPLS VPN (this version still exists) but today we mainly release version updates for SD WAN and SASE security vendors and service providers.
When embarking on creating a guide, our first goal was to produce an at-a-glance document which could be viewed on a tablet or phone. With the ability to Zoom, IT teams could essentially view areas of interest rather than reading paragraphs of text in the form of a traditional white paper.
Alongside our curated list of vendors, our team also wanted to address the most common aspects of SD WAN which we believe should be considered when performing vendor comparison.
One new addition is SASE security which now forms the basis of almost all Software WAN deployments to address public cloud adoption and work anywhere network topology.
