The Network & Security Challenges of Digital Transformation
Globally organisations are going digital. It depends on optimized access to applications and data, on-premises and in the cloud, and an increasingly mobile workforce.
The old network of the past, built with MPLS and security appliances, cannot adapt to emerging business and technical requirements and the evolving threat landscape.
As a result, the gaps must be patched with even more point solutions. It is difficult and resource intensive to run this complex network yourself.
Outsourcing doesnt work anymore
Outsourcing complexity to a telco is costly and can’t deliver the speed and agility that is so essential to a digital business. There has got to be a better way.
The Network and Security Challenges of Digital Transformation Digital business means a cloud-first, fast, and agile business, something that is incompatible with legacy telcos and network services.
Converging SD-Wan and network security into global cloud-native service
Avari is the first implementation MSP of the Gartner secure access service edge (SASE) framework, which identified a global and cloud-native architecture as the way to deliver secure and optimized access to all users and applications.
With Avari, enterprises move from legacy networks built with point solutions and expensive MPLS services to modern networks that are global, secure, agile, and affordable.
Avari Cloud connects all enterprise network resources, such as branch locations, the mobile workforce, and physical and cloud datacentres, into a global and secure, managed SD-WAN service. With all WAN and Internet traffic consolidated in the cloud, Avari applies a suite of security services to always protect all traffic.
Digital Transformation pressures the legacy network architecture because:
MPLS is expensive and rigid built to support WAN access does not cloud access.
Telcos are the wrong partners because they are:
WAN optimization is an integral part of the network software stack, utilizing TCP proxies and advanced congestion management algorithms to maximize throughput in key operations, such as file transfers.
Global Route Optimization
Avari’s proprietary routing algorithms factor in latency, packet loss, and jitter. Unlike Internet routing, Avari routing always favor performance over cost, selecting the optimal route for every network packet.
End-to-end encryption, using the strongest industry-standard cipher suites, assures data confidentiality, privacy and secure multitenancy
The Avari backbone is continuously monitored and measured. Self-healing capabilities guarantee 99.999% service availability. Elastic, scale-up cloud software design principles assure seamless service infrastructure growth without service downtime or disruptions. Locations connect to the Avari global, private backbone by establishing encrypted tunnel from a Avari Socket, Avari’s zero-touch, edge SD-
WAN appliance, or any device that supports IPsec tunnels. Cloud datacenters connect through an agent or agentless configuration; mobile users connect clientless or by running a Avari Client.
Avari Edge SD-WAN works with multiple Internet circuits, providing reliable, high-performance access to Avari’s global, private backbone. Traffic can also be routed over MPLS, directly between sites (not through the Avari PoP), and across IPsec tunnels to third-party devices.
The Avari Socket, Avari’s Edge SD-WAN device, is a zerotouch device ready to work in minutes once it has power and Internet connectivity. Sockets come in two models: X1500 for branch offices and X1700 for datacenters. Both are continuously monitored and updated by Avari’s network operations center (NOC).

Global Private Backbone
The Avari private global backbone is comprised of 50+ PoPs worldwide, interconnected by multiple SLA-backed tier-1 providers. All PoPs run Avari’s cloud-native software stack. It’s fully multitenant, scalable, and ubiquitous, performing all network functions — such as global route optimization, dynamic path selection, traffic optimization, and end-to-end encryption — as well as implementing the inspection and enforcement functions needed by Avari security services.
MPLS Migration to SD-WAN
Avari enables customers to move away from expensive, rigid, and capacity-constrained MPLS networks to multiple high-capacity Internet links and Avari’s last- and middle-mile optimizations. Using Avari Edge SD-WAN, customers boost usable capacity and improve resiliency at a lower cost per megabit.
Customers with a global footprint, leverage Avari’s affordable global private backbone to replace global MPLS and the unpredictable Internet, optimizing performance and maximizing throughput to resources on-premises and in the cloud.
Optimized Global Connectivity
Avari uses a global private backbone with built-in WAN and cloud optimization to deliver an SLA-backed, predictable, and high-performance network experience — everywhere. Customers who suffer from high latency and network inconsistency across their global locations use Avari to deliver a great user experience when accessing on-premises and cloud applications.
Secure Branch Internet Access
Avari provides a full network security stack built into Avari Cloud. By connecting all locations to the Avari global private backbone through Avari Edge SD-WAN, all traffic, both Internet and WAN, is fully protected by Avari’s Security as a Service. There is no need to add the cost and complexity of point-security solutions, appliances, or cloud services.
Cloud Acceleration and Control
Avari accelerates cloud access by routing all cloud traffic to the Avari PoP closest to the cloud destination. Because Avari PoPs share the datacenter footprint of major cloud providers, the latency between Avari and these providers is essentially zero. Cloud access optimization requires just a single application-level rule that determines where cloud application traffic should egress from the Avari Cloud. There is no need to install cloud appliances or setup hubs to reduce latency to the cloud.
Mobile Security and Optimization
Avari’s global networking and security capabilities reach down to a single mobile user’s laptop, smartphone, or tablet. No more treating mobile users like second-class citizens of your network and security infrastructure. Using a Avari Client or clientless browser access, users dynamically connect to the closest Avari PoP, and their traffic is optimally routed over the Avari global private backbone to on-premises or cloud applications. Avari Security as a Service protects mobile users against threats everywhere and enforces application access control.
Work From Home
Avari seamlessly supports work-from-home for all employees, all the time. Customers rapidly connect their on-premises and cloud datacenters to Avari Cloud and enable self-service provisioning of Avari Clients to all users who require work-from-home or remote access. Unlike legacy VPN and SDP products that can’t scale to support the entire business, Avari’s global and cloud-scale platform is built to optimize traffic to all applications with a global private backbone, and continuously inspect traffic for threats and access control with Avari’s converged security stack.
Avari Cloud: Complete WAN Transformation
Replacing MPLS and legacy WANs isn’t just an opportunity to connect our offices quickly and affordably. It’s an opportunity to transform our entire organization, connecting every user to any resource from anywhere in the world. By transforming, not just upgrading, their networks companies have reduced WAN-related costs while still doubling throughput and adding more locations, decreased deployment times from months to as a little as 30 minutes, and identified threats in their organizations missed by existing security appliances.
Yes, it’s a radical vision but one that’s a reality. Hundreds of customers are already experiencing the power of Avari. Validate it for yourself by speaking with us today.
Avari offers a suite of managed services depending on the management model that best meets customer requirements. In all cases, Avari maintains the underlying platform, freeing customers from the associated costs and complexities of scaling, upgrading, and otherwise managing the networking and security infrastructure. With self-service management, customers control all aspects of their own networks. With ecomanagement, customers can delegate configuration and troubleshooting tasks to the Avari NOC or a regional partner.
Fully managed puts responsibility for monitoring and managing the customer’s network on a regional partner.
Multiple management models are a unique advantage of Avari over legacy telcos and managed network services providers which require customers to open tickets for any network change. In addition to site deployment assistance, Avari and its partners over the following managed services:
Intelligent Last-mile Management
Avari provides customers with a premium service to continuously monitor last-mile ISPs. In case of an outage (blackout) or performance degradation (brownout), Avari works with the ISP to resolve the issue by providing pertinent and detailed network information around the incident. This service helps customers that migrated from a fully managed MPLS network to quickly resolve network issues across their multiple, global ISPs without expending precious internal IT resources.
Managed Threat Detection and Response
As mentioned, Avari provides customers with a premium service to continuously monitor their networks for compromised endpoints. Prevention is no longer sufficient to protect the corporate network. Detection is critical for complete defence against advanced attacks.
However, such managed threat detection and response (MDR) services often come at high cost with significant deployment complexity. Avari MDR leverages the deep network visibility of the Avari network to provide a zero-footprint detection of resident threats using a combination of machine learning algorithms that mine network traffic and a human verification of detected anomalies.
Avari experts then guide customers on remediating compromised endpoints.
Customers can choose Avari or one of its partners for complete hands-free management of their network. Change requests are submitted and tracked through a ticketing portal and addressed according to Avari’s service SLA. Expert staff will perform all changes to networking and security policies as needed to accommodate business and technical requirements.
With our Site Deployment service, Avari’s Professional Services (PS) team handles initial site activations and advanced configurations. The PS team then fine tunes network and security policies to match the customer’s unique requirements. Additional training ensures local resources are equipped to follow through on the remaining site activations. And Avari’s PS and Support teams are available to assist during the remainder of the deployment.
Designated Support Engineer (DSE)
For those customers looking for dedicated support, we offer our DSE service that provides a single-point-of contact for support issues. The DSE is a tier-3 support engineer with a deep understanding of customer’s environment. This eliminates the need to communicate customer-specific information, helping to speed issue resolution.
