How the changes in the work world affect enterprise connectivity
Even before 2020, more and more enterprises saw a rise in remote work. The global pandemic only accelerated this trend. A Gartner survey found that 80% of companies plan to allow employees to work remotely at least part of the time after the pandemic, and 47% will allow employees to work from home full-time. In a PwC survey found that 78% of CEOs agree that remote work will be a lingering trend. As more employees work remotely, enterprises face increasing challenges connecting them effectively to the organization’s network. Working remotely increases employees’ exposure to the volatility of the public Internet. If until now, enterprises suffered from issues connecting site-to-site, or connecting sites to the web or to cloud workloads, today the remote employees add another layer of complexity. What’s more, Internet traffic increases every year, making connections slower and less reliable just as enterprises’ connectivity needs grow.
Finding the right solution, when the traditional ones fail
Traditional connectivity solutions like MPLS solve the site-to-site connectivity problem, but are useless when faced with this new challenge. Enterprises cannot connect each and every employee to the MPLS, or install a specific edge device across the board. The solution for today’s global enterprise must solve for all scenarios (site-to-site, Site-to-SaaS, remote users) and be inoperable with anything from advanced edge devices to the most basic Wifi router or VPN client.
Teridion for Remote Access delivers optimal network configuration and performance. Teridion’s solution is like having private dedicated lines wherever you are. This solution works for all use cases, and is especially useful for remote work. The solution allows employees to work remotely, using any device and operating system. It provides high performance connectivity without any additional hardware or software – even if your employees work from a coffee shop with a basic router – they can still enjoy better performance. It optimizes the use of Teams, Zoom and other unified communications tools and delivers fast, reliable access to your workloads in the cloud and on site. If you’ve ever experienced a video call that froze ten times throughout the session, took forever to download a file from the shared drive, or tried working on a SaaS application remotely, you’ll appreciate the consistently good experience this solution delivers.
How Teridion’s solution works to accelerate remote users across locations and use cases
Teridion is a WAN as a Service solution that utilizes a multi-cloud infrastructure to find and create the best route for your traffic. The patented algorithm connects remote employees to the optimal Point of Presence (out of over 500 PoPs spread globally!) to ensure consistently good performance. How good? Teridion guarantees MPLS-level SLAs. As mentioned earlier, the solution is interoperable with any edge device and cloud-based security solutions and is managed via Teridion’s portal and APIs.
The solution is ideal for accelerating remote users to any location, be it enterprise sites, private datacenters, SaaS applications, cloud workloads, and more. Teridion encapsulates the traffic, with a fully redundant and fully managed connection. This ensures end to end, highly available performance optimization – up to 20X more throughput than the public Internet. The service is delivered by configuring an IPSEC connection to the Teridion Router, using the operating system’s native client.
