Organizations have increasingly embraced the Internet, cloud, and SaaS as part of their network infrastructure.  While this new trend has enabled organizations to achieve new efficiencies in terms of agility, scale, and cost savings, it brings additional complexity. Network and IT teams are now consistently challenged to deliver application performance over networks they don’t have direct visibility nor control.

Lack of network visibility severely hinders the ability to manage increasingly complex network environments. Application issues might manifest themselves as network issues. Service disruptions can lead to endless finger-pointing. Security breaches can be interpreted as a lack of resiliency. Determining the root causes can lead to long and often fruitless troubleshooting cycles that erode business productivity. Network and IT team require solutions that provide greater visibility to stay ahead of problems, rapidly pinpoint the root cause of performance issues, and provide concrete proof to enable effective escalations with external providers.

The integration of Cisco SD-WAN and ThousandEyes brings end-to-end visibility into application delivery and network performance extending beyond the traditional enterprise network boundaries. This integration delivers the only SD-WAN solution with turn-key ThousandEyes vantage points, enabling end-to-end visibility to deliver optimal digital experience for every user to any application, over any network.
