In the South African environment, which is likely the same internationally as well, the MPLS is prohibitively expensive for clients, and it doesn't really give them the flexibility and the performance that they need. We found that with most of our clients being able to use off-the-shelf bandwidth products, it dramatically drives down their cost and gives them the control back they need. If there are performance issues, they pick it up fairly quickly, and they don't need to log a call with the ISP to go and look at what's wrong. They can control their own application quality of service and have a better view of their application performance than they would with an ISP managing their network.

What is Citrix SD-WAN?
Citrix SD-WAN is a software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN), WAN optimization, and WAN edge solution. Citrix SD-WAN is recognized for providing a robust, trustworthy user experience so that an organization's distributed workforce can deliver the best possible outcomes at all times. Organizations can easily deploy solid security protocols wherever needed and also have the option to choose from a diverse choice of security options with unified security service and seamless integration with today’s top next-gen firewalls.
Citrix SD-WAN provides a single cloud-based user dashboard that enables organizations to easily manage their WAN, prioritize and audit applications, and configure security protocols. Citrix SD-WAN enables users to easily manage hybrid multi-cloud processes by improving applications and automating connectivity. Citrix SD-WAN gives organizations tremendous flexibility for deployment from public clouds, data centers, home offices, and branches.
Citrix SD-WAN is the basis of the Citrix consolidated process to SASE (secure access service edge) combined with cloud-delivered security and zero-trust network access to provide organizations with safe, trustworthy, secure access to each and every application anywhere, using any device.
The Citrix SD-WAN solution is made up of three basic components:
- Two software editions.
- Cloud-hosted (or on-premises) orchestrator for clear visibility and unified protocol management.
- Appliances: data center, home, branch, physical or virtual.
Citrix SD-WAN Orchestrator
The Citrix SD-WAN Orchestrator can be on premises or cloud-hosted and is a multi-tenant management service offered to Citrix partners and do-it-yourself enterprise organizations. The dashboard delivers a comprehensive view of your organization’s SD-WAN network concerning the functionality and usage of every site. The intuitive dashboard delivers a summary of uptime of the overlay and underlay paths, usage trends, and network-wide alerts.
Available application-centric policies: quality of service (QoS), firewall policies, and application-based traffic steering can all be easily configurable globally or per site.
Reviews from Real Users
“With SD-WAN, they have all the features and benefits they need to send live streaming information to the database and to headquarters without requiring a server at each site. Our other clients have various sites with just one type of communication, say a radio or a mobile network. SD-WAN helps them to combine and get a better bandwidth to balance all their applications and services.” - Business Consultant at a tech services company
“We needed to create some kind of network that was distributed through data and media or big files. It was a retail company, so there were branches, and the branches needed to connect to HQ. We provided HQ and each branch with Citrix SD-WAN. We tried to use it, and it worked well. The transmission was good, and they were losing less data.” - Ruslan M., SMB Sales Director, Regional Business Development Department at Softline
Citrix SD-WAN was previously known as Citrix CloudBridge, WOC, NetScaler SD-WAN.
