Securing SD-WAN

A typical business can rely on dozens of cloud services for daily operations. Adoption of cloud-based service and applications has resulted in a large portion of traffic traveling back and forth across broadband Internet connections. Many organizations have adopted SD-WAN for their networks because of the significant benefits of agility, responsiveness, and cost-effectiveness. However, the cost and performance benefits of SD-WAN might not seem worth it to IT teams if that means becoming burdened with security concerns.

Speed and data are two of the most valuable business currencies in today’s rapid growth environment, both of which have rendered traditional security deployments insufficient and ineffective. Enterprises need to take advantage of SD-WAN technology without falling prey to increased threats. The ability of cloud-delivered security solutions can combat the increasing sophistication of security threats while reducing latency and costs. The Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a new security model defined by Gartner specifically to address the security challenges organizations are now facing. SASE combines WAN capabilities with network security functions: secure web gateway, cloud access security broker, firewall-as-a-service, and zero-trust network access.

VMware SD-WAN™ by VeloCloud® solves WAN security challenges by providing a best-of-breed approach to security, as well as native security capabilities. VMware SD-WAN’s adoption of a SASE approach to cloud-delivered security provides enterprises a great opportunity to strengthen their cybersecurity posture, and quickly deploy the latest cyber defense mechanisms.
