Over the past several years, the move to the cloud has changed how enterprise IT works. Now, the growing trend toward multi-cloud is about to upend the business world again.

With enterprises using multiple cloud vendors, and entrusting more and more of their applications to SaaS, businesses and their IT departments are looking to find new and better ways to optimize their networks for this new world, as well as rethinking their infrastructure architecture.

Along the way, there are other questions: How can the company optimize transport costs? How is the data best delivered to branch offices? Is the network secure?

One way enterprises are trying to answer these concerns is through SD-WAN, a newer technology that is helping to deliver SaaS-based applications to remote and satellite offices with better speed, security and efficiency than the legacy WAN.

Join Versa Networks and Enterprise Cloud News for a live webinar where we'll explore how multi-cloud is changing IT infrastructure and how IT is managing this new infrastructure. We'll see how IT is designing networks to support any number of cloud infrastructures and services, as well as using these technologies to gain new insights and visibility into the network. We'll also investigate how SD-WAN can help enterprises take full advantage of the cloud, connecting apps to the people who need them, and bringing a layer of security to ensure the integrity of the business and the network.
