Remote office networks pose a business and reliability risk

A survey of IT professionals shows that nearly every company suffers direct business impact from network service interruptions


Nearly every company suffers direct business impact from network service interruptions. This survey of 250 networking, security and architecture professionals seeks to understand the current practices of managing and securing networks at remote locations, and connectivity to corporate offices.

The survey discovered that remote location security and lack of on-site personnel is leading to distributed networking challenges, with 49% of companies requiring 3+ hours to resolve remote office network outages. 

This report sets out the key findings of the survey, as well as exploring how companies are planning to utilise SD-WAN to enable new operational models and provide answers to current reliability challenges.
