BrandPost: SD-WAN Provides Flexibility for a Work from Anywhere World

If there's one thing the last year has taught us, it's the need for flexibility. The IT teams working at businesses around the world didn't have "global pandemic" on their radar, yet they had to work to shift processes and business models almost overnight. And in many cases, they had to cope with setting up tens, hundreds, or even thousands of employees working from home. Many organizations plan for the fact that a certain percentage of people will be using a VPN to access the data center, but when the pandemic hit, IT had to deal with updating and adding support for a significant number of additional VPNs.

Moving forward, even those businesses that return to a majority of in-person work are likely to have some employees that continue to work remotely, if for no other reason than because quite a few of them actually prefer remote work. According to a Pew Research survey, about half of the respondents want to stay remote, at least part-time. And analysts at Global Workplace Analytics forecast that 25-30% of the workforce will be working multiple days at home per week by the end of 2021.
