It integrates nicely with AWS (in regions other than China). The provisioning support is pretty good.

Any organization with a robust IT support network and with 100+ users, all the way up to international conglomerates with millions of workers. The only situation I can see where it might be harder is if you have a very small business with limited technical know-how. Otherwise, it's honestly the no-brainer choice.

  • Sometimes the interface is a bit slow to load. That's honestly about it!

Alternatives Considered

We didn't really evaluate many other SDWAN providers as very few operate inside of China. Our alternative was to build VPN connectivity ourselves.

After a lengthy vendor selection process we determined that CloudBridge was the best solution—although as always with demos it was difficult to tell if we'd really made the right decision. Since selecting CloudBridge—hough I have had lots of input from colleagues who use other systems—I feel very happy with our choice. The feature set alone is just far superior.

  • Tremendous savings from high uptime percent.
  • Keeping our remote users engaged and stable at work means we can hire anywhere on earth.
  • Access control keeps our IT team from constantly being tied up with password resets.
