SD-WAN Remote Access:
Work from Home Solutions

Empower your remote workforce with ultra-secure, high performing connections to their home network

With home working now the new norm, application performance is an increasing concern, with multiple devices competing for bandwidth as they remotely connect to the corporate network. Furthermore, the range of threats to network security is much larger, due to numerous unsecured IoT devices connecting to the home router.

SD-HOME - Exponential-e’s Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) solution for home working - maximises quality of service (QoS) for critical business applications by utilising SD-WAN technology for bandwidth prioritisation, supported by a robust cyber security network.

All the benefits of SD-WAN,
tailored for home networks

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.

01
Bandwidth Prioritisation and QoS for Critical Business Applications
Using enhanced application recognition and control, we can apply bandwidth and QoS priority to critical business applications. This safeguards against bandwidth monopolisation by home streaming and gaming apps, such as Netflix or Fortnite, while maintaining control of data security and access to the corporate network.
02
Corporate-level Security
Seamlessly extend the corporate network security policy into the home, with full separation from personal and IoT devices, powered by Exponential-e’s own security ecosystem, which has earned numerous network security certifications.
03
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.
04
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.
SD-Home - Internet of Things - Smart Home
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 exposing weaknesses in home internet security that, in turn, affect the corporate network security system.

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.

FAQ

What is SD-HOME?

Underpinned by our SD-WAN platform, our SD-HOME solution extends your corporate security and compliance policies to the home, whilst also maintaining the availability of business-critical applications to your employee over a secure overlay network. This improves your overall endpoint security and maximises staff productivity.

What is Quality of Service in networking?

SD-HOME is an underlay-agnostic solution, which can be run over a number of transport types. Whilst in a traditional network, you may look at Quality of Service (QoS) to prioritise traffic streams, in a Software-Defined Network (SDN) we focus on how we can improve the overall user experience by leveraging advanced routing and application recognition capabilities on our platform, which we refer to as Quality of Experience (QoE).
