Cisco SD-WAN is well suited to any scenario where highly available communication between multiple sites is required as long as they have routers from the same vendor. It is not recommended for scenarios where there are routers from different vendors, since normally each one manages its sd-wan, which prevents the communication from forming naturally.

Depending on the complexity of your equipment, devices, the network you are with, the size of your company, or the budget you are willing to pay, you should consider buying Prisma. I have in mind that it is a tool to make the leap to extra security for your devices; it is a complex tool that cannot be learned in a single day. Without a doubt, I would recommend her to a company that has a proven track record and knows what it wants.

Cons

Cisco

  • The minimum subscription time is three years, which makes the initial investment of the projects more expensive.
  • The types of subscriptions that determine the accumulated bandwidth of the transport links generate a limitation to the additional solution that the hardware supports.
  • Access to the Vmanage administration console must be from a previously established IP address, which removes flexibility of access to the cloud.

      Alternatives Considered

      Cisco

      Cisco SD-WAN is the simplest to implement with graphical user interface full configuration. There [are] also many automated parts of [the] configuration, like tunnels configurations and routes propagation. Cisco also brings its SD-WAN solution as a complementary solution to users already using Cisco equipment like Meraki and Firepower firewalls. This could be an advantage also.
