Top 10 Things you Should Know About SD-WAN


What is “Secure SD-WAN”?

Software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) can radically improve your wide area network (WAN) architecture; many businesses wonder what security looks like once SD-WAN is deployed and how to best secure their network.  Having direct control over which WAN links an application can use in the branch creates the immediate concern of being able to control and secure those applications from within the branch without having complex, costly security devices in every location.

With SD-WAN, you can deploy physical or virtual firewalls in the branch office, or, take advantage of cloud security solutions which help eliminate extra hardware in the branch office and associated management complexity.  Policies can be defined that demand that traffic traverse the firewall in the branch or the cloud security platform.  This allows you to secure your business while enjoying the benefits of SD-WAN, and enjoy a consistent security and threat prevention perimeter for all sites.

CloudGenix takes this a step farther by including an application-aware zone-based firewall in the device deployed in the branch.  Better yet, with the app-level controls in AppFabric, CloudGenix gives you complete control over which applications use a cloud security platform, yielding better economics.  CloudGenix has partnered with best-in-class cloud security platforms to provide secure SD-WAN, also known as SSD-WAN.
