Optimized Branch Experience: New Aruba Branch Gateway Delivers WAN Insights and Control

Providing improved user experiences starts with delivering unmatched reliability. According to Gartner, a network outage can be more than an inconvenience, and evidence shows that these can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $1,000,000 per incident in lost productivity or revenue, depending on location and enterprise use case3.

By leveraging context to gain insight into the health of an entire distributed branch network – wired, wireless, and WAN - IT organizations can dynamically optimize the user experience in real-time before any impact to the business occurs. Embedded in the new Branch Gateway, Aruba’s unique context-awareness capabilities go beyond granular role-based network access and application security to deliver an unmatched Quality of Service (QoS) experience from the LAN to the WAN. This allows IT professionals to satisfy the needs of end users while simplifying IT operations.

Additional Branch Gateway features such as policy-based routing and dynamic path selection can now leverage this contextual data and awareness to dynamically route traffic across the WAN based on user, device, or group affiliation. For example, retail organizations can easily prioritize PoS system and video traffic versus guest traffic, while hotels can prioritize voice traffic for anyone involved with customer service.

Sayers is a Chicago-based solutions partner that provides customized hardware, software, and professional services to power IT infrastructures and cybersecurity.

“When introducing a customer to SD-WAN solutions, the last thing you want to do is introduce complexity and extra cost, especially at the branch,” said Joel Grace, Vice President of Engineering, Emerging Technologies, Sayers. “With the Aruba SD-Branch solution, customers get an easy to deploy and cost-effective offering that integrates cloud-managed SD-WAN, multi-layered security, WLAN and LAN in a single solution.”

Palo Alto Networks is the global cybersecurity leader, known for always challenging the security status quo.

“Our partnership with Aruba allows us to continue offering our customers new ways to improve security effectiveness and efficiency,” said Terry Ramos, Vice President of Business Development, Palo Alto Networks. “Expanding our existing integration to the new Aruba SD-Branch solution means that customer security policies will remain consistent and automated so they can streamline routine tasks and focus on business priorities.”

Check Point Software Technologies is the largest network cyber security vendor globally, providing industry-leading solutions and protecting customers from cyberattacks with an unmatched catch rate of malware and other types of threats.

“The migration of corporate assets and applications to the cloud has led to 5th generation multi-vector cyberattacks threatening all businesses, and Check Point provides cloud-delivered security services to prevent these types of attacks,” said Jason Min, Head of Business and Corporate Development, Check Point Software Technologies. “By integrating our cloud security platform with Aruba’s SD-Branch solution, Check Point is providing businesses with Gen V advanced threat prevention solutions, preventing all types of attacks on the cloud, endpoints, remote offices, and mobile devices."

Zscaler enables the world’s leading organizations to securely transform their networks and applications for a mobile and cloud-first world.

“Security should not be an impediment as enterprises embrace cloud and mobility and transform their network to instrument direct internet breakouts," said Punit Minocha, Senior Vice President of Business and Corporate Development at Zscaler. “Zscaler is proud to be part of Aruba’s 360 security exchange technology partner program, and to offer those enterprises using Aruba’s SD-Branch solution a seamless way to make security and access controls a fundamental part of their cloud transformation journeys.
