Reconfigure on the fly with a software-defined WAN.

Barracuda SD-WAN technology is a cost-effective and agile alternative to dedicated network connections. With a software-defined WAN, you can easily reconfigure your network and prioritize different types of traffic within minutes.

A software-defined WAN allows you to increase the performance of your current network infrastructure by providing Internet breakouts at each location. The SD-WAN enforces company policies at each Internet breakout and ensures that the traffic you prioritize is reliable and optimized for best performance.

Improve profit and service with SaaS.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications have increased profits and improved customer service for retailers all over the world. An enterprise-wide SaaS deployment requires a secure and reliable Internet connection at each location. These cloud-based applications will not perform reliably on a traditional WAN that routes all Internet traffic through the central location. Deploying a traditional data center based network infrastructure to support the new SaaS applications can be cost-prohibitive, especially in remote locations.

Streamline point-of-sale performance.

A cloud-based POS (point-of-sale) system can enhance inventory control, speed up customer transactions, and streamline tax calculations and other business functions. Managers can access up-to-date enterprise-wide business information from any location that has an Internet connection.

Barracuda SD-WAN can help you ensure that your POS information is always up to date. Application-aware security and prioritization ensure that your point-of-sale system and other mission-critical applications are prioritized and assigned the highest availability connections.

Get a better way to VoIP.

Voice-over-IP (VoIP) has proven to be a cost-effective and high-performing solution for businesses. It supports multiple features that are perfect for the demands of retail, such as mobile connectivity through softphone applications, and scalability that supports adjustments based on sales needs. Seasonal staff and temporary locations are easy to add and remove as needed.

Take advantage of everything VoIP has to offer with an SD-WAN infrastructure that provides the best possible path and high-availability links for communications. Zero-touch provisioning and drag-and-drop configuration make it easy to reconfigure the network to support your business needs.
