If your organization currently uses an outdated MPLS solution, you may have poor network connectivity and security risks.
MPLS services can lead to high latency and network vulnerabilities, potentially resulting in cyberattacks that could cost your organization hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Organizations can’t operate effectively with high latency and network vulnerabilities that lead to reduced employee productivity or cyberattacks. Migrating from MPLS to SASE can help you avoid these issues and improve your network performance and security.
Coeo understands how important a reliable network and network security is to an organization and has delivered thousands of network security solutions to organizations to help them avoid cyberattacks and data breaches.
By the end of this article, you will understand how migrating from MPLS to SASE can benefit your organization and whether SASE is the right solution for your organization.
How migrating from MPLS to SASE can benefit your organization
There are many issues with having an outdated network service like MPLS that can cause detrimental consequences to your network. These consequences can severely affect your business if your service is not updated.
The benefits of migrating from MPLS to SASE include:
Traditional MPLS services typically require hardware to be installed on the premises of your location. Conversely, a SASE solution is cloud-based and only relies on an internet connection so little to no hardware is required.
Because of this, migrating from MPLS to SASE can eliminate the costs associated with MPLS hardware appliances as well as circuits, maintenance expenses, and management overhead.
This shift to cloud-native technology and solutions enables you to pay-as-you-go and leads to lower costs, especially on the front end.
Improved network performance and user experience
MPLS is an outdated service compared to what is available today. To leverage newer technology, SASE provides optimized network connectivity by utilizing cloud-based connectivity and dynamic traffic routing.
Migrating from MPLS to SASE can result in improved application performance, reduced latency, and greater flexibility for employees to access the network using several devices such as laptops, desktops, cellphones, and tablets.
Better scalability and flexibility
Migrating from MPLS to SASE can help increase your network’s scalability and flexibility. Because SASE uses little to no hardware, it is much easier to add users when needed and scale with your growing organization.
Additionally, SASE is a much more flexible solution because minimal hardware is required making it easier for employees to access the network from any location using any device.
This makes SASE easier to use when employees are working remotely or in other various locations.
Improved network security
Another difference between MPLS and SASE is that SASE integrates network security services such as Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), and Data Loss Prevention (DLP).
MPLS, on the other hand, does not integrate these security services. As a result, migrating from MPLS to SASE will benefit your organization by improving your network security as well as providing better network visibility and control.
Improved management capabilities
Unlike MPLS, SASE solutions provide centralized management with policy orchestration and greater control management.
Because of this, migrating from MPLS to SASE will help your organization better manage your network to enhance visibility into network traffic.
Network redundancy and improved reliability
Unlike MPLS, SASE delivers multiple connections simultaneously and automatically sends and receives data over the most reliable and secure connection ensuring that your network is highly redundant.
Through this process, migrating to SASE can provide your network with better reliability and fewer network outages and disruptions.
Is a SASE solution a good fit for your organization?
Now you understand the benefits of migrating from MPLS to a SASE solution. This will help you determine whether SASE meets your organization’s needs and whether you should invest in a SASE solution.
If your organization is currently using an MPLS connection, it may be beneficial to upgrade to a more reliable network solution to not only provide a more reliable network connection but also improve network security.
If you are only using an MPLS service, your network may operate with poor network reliability and network vulnerabilities.
While SASE may not be the best solution for every organization, it may be a good idea to upgrade from MPLS to some type of updated technology.
However, SASE may be the right solution for your organization if you are paying too much for your current network service. SASE will help your organization save money compared to MPLS.
If your organization is experiencing a poor-performing network connection and network vulnerabilities or having trouble with the scalability and flexibility of your current solution, SASE may be a good solution.
Further, if your organization is having difficulty viewing your network and managing your network internally, a SASE solution may be a good choice for your organization to provide you with more centralized network management.
Determining whether SASE is the right solution for your organization
Now you understand the benefits of migrating from MPLS to SASE and whether SASE is a good solution for your organization. This will help you determine whether your organization should invest in a SASE solution.
Organizations can’t perform well with a poor-performing network connection and poor network security. These challenges will lead to a decrease in employee productivity and cyberattacks if your network security and connectivity are not improved.
Improving your network security with solutions like SASE can help solve these issues.
