Advantages of SD-Access

Cisco's Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) decouples network functions from hardware, creating a virtual overlay for the underlying physical network infrastructures. This flexible overlay applies access and security policies consistently across various networks, including WAN, wireless and multi-cloud data center networks. It also analyzes endpoints and traffic flows to identify, profile, and group endpoints to help define and fine-tune group-based access policies. These policies segment the network and control traffic flows without firewalls, access control lists, or virtual LANs.

SD-Access also continuously verifies trust for the endpoints and analyzes traffic to detect anomalous behavior or compromised endpoints. If any issues are detected, SD-Access can respond quickly to isolate and contain the issue.

Combined with Cisco's DNA Center management and control platform, SD-Access' integrated tools improve network management, automate policies, segmentation, and services configurations, and reduce incident response time.
