Hillstone Networks released a dedicated version of its software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) solution as part of its Hillstone Security Management Platform (HSM) 5.0 release.
Hillstone’s stand-alone SD-WAN solution addresses the increasing need for more bandwidth, as well as improved network availability and quality requirements to better serve latency-sensitive apps, and to ensure that today’s hybrid workforce have the secure networking infrastructure they need to remain productive.

- Simplified orchestration with advanced overlay automation and zero-touch provisioning, enables provisioning of devices in field deployment with preconfigured settings to significantly reduce configuration overhead, speed up delivery of services and increase reliability, especially in large-scale deployments.
- Global unified network visibility with dynamic health monitoring, provides not only real-time alarms through webUI, email or social apps, but also brings enhanced data and statistics for further troubleshooting and optimization.
- Optimized application performance with intelligent routing and content awareness, boosts and optimizes app performance, ensuring an optimum user experience by intelligently steering traffic based on the app(s) or service(s), and the policy(s) enforced.
“Organizations today still struggle with how to balance supporting and securing a hybrid workforce against the backdrop of an increasing potential of cyberattacks,” says Tim Liu, Co-founder, and CTO at Hillstone Networks.
