Organizations are modernizing their wide area networks (WANs) to improve networking and application performance, reduce CAPEX and OPEX, simplify management, and facilitate business growth. Software-defined wide-area networks (SD-WANs), which provide an overarching, transport-agnostic management and control layer, are a top contender to handle this transformation.
However, SD-WAN solutions are not all advanced security solutions, and organizations migrating to the cloud must ensure their security keeps pace with the changing network and threat landscape.
The following white paper explores today’s compelling reasons for network modernization, WAN optimization and SD-WAN adoption, and provides 5 security imperatives to consider as you modernize infrastructure and realize cloud-derived efficiencies.
Discover how you can:
- Modernize security and mitigate risk as you modernize your network.
- Protect your branch offices as you bring them online faster and more cost-efficiently through the cloud.
- Ensure that backhaul offload (i.e., the switching to direct branch-to-Internet connections) doesn’t leave you vulnerability to both common and new cyberthreats…
