Software-Defined WAN for the HOME
 Software-Defined WAN for the HOME

SD-Home extends your corporate security and compliance policies into your home-workers' network

At home, the attack footprint is much larger due to IoT devices - such as lightbulbs, thermostats,
and doorbells - connecting to the internet. The software for these devices is not regularly updated, leaving the network more open to compromise.
Exponential-e’s SD-HOME solution secures the home network, utilising Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) technology.

The benefits of SD-HOME

SD-HOME maximises the availability of business-critical applications to home workers, irrespective of service provider or access technology, while extending your corporate security and compliance polices to the home network. SD-HOME integrates seamlessly into your existing Corporate WAN, maintaining a secure overlay network, over which your corporate resources can be delivered, enhancing user experience, productivity and effectiveness.

Corporate-level Security
Extend Corporate WiFi and security policies into the home, with full separation from personal and IoT devices on the home network.
Bandwidth Priority for Critical Business Applications
Using enhanced application recognition and control, we can apply bandwidth and QoS priority to critical business applications. This safeguards against monopolisation by home streaming and gaming apps, such as Netflix or Fortnite.
Enhance Application Performance
SD-Home is able to route select applications to the Corporate Security Hub for UTM whilst offloading SaaS apps direct to the internet.
Additional Resiliency
Direct connectivity into the Corporate WAN via a Secure Overlay Network additionally helps to reduce the load on Central Security and VPN aggregation infrastructure.
Greater Attack Footprint
Background Monopolisation of Bandwidth
Greater Vulnerability due to lack of Updates
The smart home can have a massive impact on the remote worker, not only restricting business critical connectivity, but also increasing security vulnerabilities that can infect the connecting Enterprise network.

The rise of the distributed workforce - culture, technology & processes

Reflecting on the now, but planning for the future

Amid the backdrop of Covid-19, UK businesses have gone through major changes to maintain services to their customers. One of biggest shifts has been the closure of many offices, resulting in all employees working from home. In this report, our panel of experts reflect on how prepared businesses were to shift to a distributed workforce model and, as we move forward, what steps they need to take to ensure they minimise disruption, should another pandemic occur in the future.
