Hillstone SD-WAN Solution
Centralized Management with Zero-Touch Provisioning at the Edge
ZTP allows for effortless scalability and deployment, even in the absence of skilled IT staff. By acting as a centralized controller, Hillstone’s secure SD-WAN solution is adept at bringing new CPE devices online, making it adaptable to the new “branch of one” concept, and push changes to existing CPE devices seamlessly.

How can SD-WAN Help Your Organization?
A wide variety of distributed organizations can benefit from an SD-WAN solution. These use-case scenarios listed below, drawn from real-world deployments, can serve as a blueprint for your organization’s needs.
Retailers face unique compliance and scalability requirements. PCI-DSS compliance is mandatory to protect customer credit card data, which entails both encryption of traffic and segmentation of the network to ensure only appropriate access by systems and staff. Malware and breach detection are also increasingly important to retail operations, given recent headline-making data breaches. Application prioritization can also ensure that purchase transactions are given high priority, and real-time data is available for supply-chain and other retail analysis.
Healthcare systems, both clinical and research, are increasingly distributed, and SD-WAN can help connect decentralized locations with high-quality bandwidth and performance while ensuring compliance, privacy and security. Large file transfers, like x-rays and electronic health records, can be accommodated with the necessary performance. IoT devices can be protected from malicious attacks that could lead to a breach of sensitive patient information.
Communications and managed service providers are increasingly turning to IaaS services as a revenue center, and SD-WAN services can be a compelling offering, especially among small- to medium-sized businesses. Centralized management provides easy day-to-day operations and management, and the Hillstone solution provides advanced security along with the SD-WAN capabilities. Smaller businesses can realize improved performance through application-aware prioritization of SaaS services as well.
Government agencies with remote locations can also benefit from Hillstone’s SD-WAN solution, by augmenting or eliminating high-cost MPLS networks while still attaining secure and reliable access. For extremely remote or hard-to-reach areas, the solution’s ability to utilize wireless broadband connections provides fast, secure access as well. Similarly, for disaster preparedness, 3G/4G/5G LTE connections can be used to provide an SD-WAN mesh that is both reliable and secure in the event of a natural or man-made disaster.
