The traditional WAN op market is declining slowly. Why? A number of reasons:

  1. Bandwidth is becoming cheaper
  2. Protocols are becoming more efficient
  3. Applications are moving to the cloud

WAN optimization is not going away. However, it is changing.

The worldwide SD-WAN market for infrastructure and services will exceed $6 billion in 2020, with a growth of over 90%. – IDC

By the end of 2019, 30% of enterprises will use SD-WAN products in all their branches, up from less than 1% today. 

This is where your customers are going today (and where Citrix competitors are not).

According to Gartner, SD-WANs include the ability to:

  • Improve network performance and reliability through intelligent and dynamic load sharing
  • Provide a single point of configuration for integrated network services
  • Secure connections between offices and to the cloud
  • Replace traditional branch routers with an integrated appliance that can include routing, traffic engineering, WAN Optimization, and firewall functionality
