SaaS-based applications are the choice of many enterprises looking to replace traditional apps that were hosted in their own data center. SaaS provides flexibility and choice when it comes to enterprise-grade applications and reduces some administrative challenges by offloading them to the vendor.

But SaaS is not without its challenges.

Specifically, SaaS makes it more complicated to bring applications to branch offices. Older technologies such as WAN doesn't cut it anymore, and service providers are looking for new ways to connect offices to the apps that workers need.

It's a challenge for IT as well, since SaaS provides a lot of flexibility but admins still want a sense of control of the data.

This is where SD-WAN is proving that it has something to offer to IT, enterprises and service providers. Join Citrix and Enterprise Cloud News as they explore what SD-WAN means for the modern enterprise, how it provides security and connectivity when it comes to SaaS, how to improve the user experience and how service providers can offer SD-WAN to customers as a service.
