Traditional WAN architectures are under major pressure driven by the migration of services and data to multi-cloud environments, the need for direct connectivity to those resources from branch offices, and the growing reliance on bandwidth-hungry business applications. As a result, organizations are being forced to redesign their WAN architectures. But those organizations adopting SD-WAN are also finding that they need to increase and expand their cybersecurity as well if they want to stay ahead of potential threats. And at the same time, meeting compliance and business requirements means that new SD-WAN solutions need to provide consistent security, privacy, and management requirements along with advanced connectivity and optimized application access.
