The EdgeConnect SD‑WAN and secure edge portfolio

A secure SD-WAN is the foundational component for architecting a secure access service edge (SASE)—powering branch, WAN, and security.

Connect users and devices across locations, data centers, cloud, and SaaS with a unified SD-WAN fabric

Journey to SASE starts with a secure SD-WAN

Embrace WAN and security transformation to realize the maximum return from your cloud investments. SASE, or Secure Access Service Edge, moves the industry in a new direction with the following benefits:
  • Achieve the highest level of application performance under any network conditions using an adaptive, self-learning platform.
  • Secure remote access, protect against threats, and safeguard sensitive data in SaaS apps with always-on Zero Trust Security that seamlessly extends to HPE Aruba Networking SSE (Security Service Edge) or to an ecosystem of cloud SSE providers for full SASE.
  • Deliver consistent end-to-end security policy enforcement across the entire enterprise.
  • Centrally manage with a single platform that unifies SD-WAN, firewall, routing, and WAN optimization.

Experience a complete secure edge portfolio that spans campus, branch, WAN, and remote workers with a single SD-WAN fabric.

Power a secure access service edge (SASE)

Enterprise architectures are changing. How can you securely, and seamlessly, connect anyone or anything at edge locations to the cloud, and to applications? That’s where HPE Aruba Networking edge-to-cloud security, based on the principles of Zero Trust and SASE, comes in.

Deliver maximum value from cloud investments

Simplify and automate secure multi-cloud connectivity to leading cloud and SaaS providers, extending the benefits of SD-WAN and delivering the highest levels of application performance.

Shift to a business-first networking

Move to a network that conforms to your business, not one that forces applications to comply with legacy network constraints.

Simplify WAN architecture and contain costs

Unify SD-WAN, routing, firewall, segmentation, WAN optimization, and application visibility in a single platform to consolidate and simplify WAN edge architecture at the branch.

We’re thrilled to be awarded in the CRN 2023 Annual Report Card (ARC) Awards for SD-WAN, achieving a full category sweep!

“What made deploying EdgeConnect so easy were the templates. At each site, all we had to do was plug in the EdgeConnect appliance and have someone back at the main office accept the new site and push the configuration template out through Orchestrator.”

Sam Ainscow, Head of IT Operations and Chief Information Security Officer, Barrett Steel

“Overall, we wanted a secured and consistent user experience platform built on simplicity and as streamlined as walking into a local branch of a global coffeehouse. With Aruba’s SD-Branch innovations, we are well on the way to achieving just that.”

Sase Govindan, Technical Consultant, Verisk

“The second we bring up the EdgeConnect platform, people at sites that traditionally had performance problems are just amazed at the speed of their applications. In many cases we’re seeing a fivefold improvement in application performance.”

Mark Taylor, Network Manager, USANA

“In the healthcare industry, the data that we hold is more valuable than financial information. With Silver Peak we liked not only the technical suite, but the ability to link into Zscaler. Wrapping Zscaler around our internet-facing traffic to give us cloud security made perfect sense.”

Dan Morgan, IT Operations Director, Nuffield Health
