Surveys

VPN technologies, including SD-WAN, are becoming increasingly important as organisations restructure their corporate networks and make greater use of cloud services.

ITWeb is conducting a survey on the current status of VPN/SD-WAN adoption at South African organisations.

In this survey, we examine, among other things:

1.
Does the business have a VPN in place?
2.
Who manages it?
3.
What technologies form part of the VPN?

We also ask why businesses chose to deploy a SD-WAN, the technology and features it has, service level agreements around their SD-WAN, as well as whether it has been impacted by work-from-home.

By completing the questionnaire and leaving your contact details, you stand a chance to win a Takealot voucher to the value of R3 000. The detailed results of the survey will be shared exclusively with survey respondents.

Thanks for participating!

DEFINITIONS

Please read the following definitions before proceeding:

MPLS VPN

Based on the MPLS network, using dedicated links to connect network endpoints to the service provider’s network. Offers CoS capabilities and QoS guarantees per application.

SD-WAN

SD-WAN simplifies the management and operation of a WAN by decoupling the networking hardware from its control mechanism. Some of the network intelligence is based in the cloud, allowing centralised policy management and security. Commercially available internet access can be used by this technology to create WAN connections between sites.

SASE

Secure Access Service Edge simplifies wide-area networking (WAN) and security by delivering both as a cloud service directly to the source of connection (user, device, branch office, IoT device, edge computing location) rather than the enterprise data centre.
