The Covergence of Network and Security
SDW-02
VP SD-WAN
Windstream
SD-WAN is rapidly transforming how networks operate and how application performance and resiliency are optimized with intelligent algorithms to deliver the established business policies. Security has always been the number one concern for network operators and SD-WAN security features have enabled businesses to utilize cost-effective high bandwidth broadband options. To further protect customer data, the next wave of SD-WAN enhancements will incorporate more advanced security features including next generation firewalls and Unified Threat Management features. SD-WAN includes the flexibility to deploy security in a tailored fashion to meet your needs – on-premises with a dedicated device or integrated into the SD-WAN device, in the cloud, or as hybrid solution with a combination of on-premises and cloud-based security. SD-WAN provides unprecedented visibility and control enabling network administrators to quickly identify anomalies and take corrective action on a network wide basis or on a granular location or device basis. These new big data insights also provide the intelligence to upgrade network elements based on emerging traffic patterns to avoid congestion and potential failures.
