But, deploying physical security appliances is a challenge at remote offices with little space or onsite IT support. Physical appliances can take up highly valuable space and require local administrators to train and learn how to deploy and manage the systems.
Virtual appliances can help simplify the deployment of your SWG solution and consolidate hardware, can be administered and upgraded remotely, and can be rapidly deployed in cases of disaster recovery.
