|Title:||Secure SD-WAN – Visibility and Policy Context in One Integrated Solution|
|Sponsored By:||Versa Networks|
Traditional siloed security infrastructure is proving to be ineffective, as witnessed by the growing attacks on seemingly ineffective security infrastructure. Many enterprises are embracing a significant paradigm shift that ushers in a modern enterprise software-defined infrastructure, that is, one that consists of multiple inter-dependencies, relationships and key structural network and security functions that are inherently integrated into a single, cohesive network-wide, and cloud-native IP platform.
The solution for these types of security breaches will encompass best-of-breed SD-WAN with embedded full-featured security that is automated and programmable at every edge location, and that enables incident data to be centrally managed and responded to in real-time, by security experts.
One of the most effective means of reducing the attack surface of an enterprise is the ability to segment the network by class of traffic and segmentation of duties, i.e., CEO vs CFO vs CMO. The four-square problem that most enterprises face is that they lack full integration of security and networking services in the same device or image, and their networking architecture does not allow for multi-tenancy everywhere in the enterprise. The migration of networks, applications and data to a multi-cloud strategy also expands the corporate attack surface, especially for numerous net-new Internet WAN links, which traditionally are the weakest windows of vulnerability.
The ability to provide true multi-tenancy intra-enterprise to segment traffic and privileged communications, and segment every sub-net on the corporate network, is a significant preventive maneuver to reduce the windows of vulnerability within the global enterprise.
