Aruba Networks SD-Branch Webinar Plus an Exclusive Cook Along with World Renown Chef Richard Blais

Distributed organizations with multiple locations are undergoing a digital transformation to better meet evolving business objectives. This means that IT must improve operations, deploy new services faster, and deliver an enhanced secure user experience. Aruba’s SD-Branch solution encompasses WAN, WLAN, wired, and security  to address all of your organization’s IT network connectivity needs at each branch. This enables you to understand the user experience at every location, monitor for traffic that traverses WAN links, and proactively solve end-to-end networking issues.

Join us for a webinar session with Aruba Networks to learn how their SD-Branch solution can help your organization alleviate today’s branch complexities. During this session, we will cover the following key capabilities of Aruba’s SD-Branch solution:

  • Aruba Central – A unified cloud-based network operations, assurance and security platform that simplifies the deployment, management, and optimization of wireless, wired and WAN environments.
  • Zero Trust Security – Embracing a scalable security methodology from edge to cloud for consistent role-based enforcement and context-aware controls in a variety of branch networking requirements.
  • Zero-Touch Provisioning – How the Aruba Installer app reduces time, cost, and complexity of installing branch office networks.
  • Dynamic Segmentation – Context-aware policy enforcement for users and IoT, eliminates manual configuration of numerous VLANs with a single VLAN deployment.
  • SD-WAN Orchestration – Automatically set up IPsec tunnels between gateways and builds the SD-WAN overlay for large networks.
  • End to End QoS – Application visibility and policy enforcement for over 3,200 apps from LAN to WAN to the cloud.
  • SaaS and IaaS Acceleration – Dynamic path optimization for high priority SaaS apps and selection of virtual gateways for AWS and Azure tunnels.

Immediately following this webinar, you will be able to join a private session with world renown chef, Richard Blais. Recipes will be sent to you in advance, if you'd like to cook along.
