SD-WAN makes a difference for government
As network perimeters expand beyond physical and metaphorical walls, government agencies are shifting to network solutions with greater security, reliability and performance. Windstream Enterprise commissioned Forrester Consulting to determine what matters most for organizations that are transitioning from legacy networks to next-generation SD-WAN.

60% of government agencies surveyed said they rely heavily on the WAN for daily operations. But in the face of digital transformation and the need for secure, cloud-optimized infrastructure, yesterday’s technology no longer works.
Top WAN challenges for government
