Optimizing SD-WAN Security for Cloud first-Enterprise

As enterprise branch offices expand their use of cloud applications, they are adopting Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) to improve productivity and performance. SD-WAN is transformational technology to optimise network bandwidth utilisation. In addition, the use of this leading network solution can also improve application performance and increase network visibility in a widespread number of branches.

However, connecting branch offices directly to the Internet increases the new risk of cyber-attack and the high cost for security management.  Securing SD-WAN connections to the cloud is essential to ensure that enterprises have the ability in managing today’s increased cyber threats.

Powered by leading global technologies, Telkomtelstra Managed SD-WAN solution assure the performance and security of enterprise and cloud applications over the Internet and hybrid-WAN, while significantly simplifying deployments and reducing costs.

Last September at Webinar ‘Optimizing SD-WAN Security for Cloud first-Enterprise’ collaborated with VMware and Check Point, we showed how to secure branch office SD-WAN connections to the cloud. [To see to the webinar session, click here.]

Highlights from this discussion include:

  • Connecting branch offices directly to the internet significantly increase their security risk and security management costs. Branches are no longer protected by centralized data center security, which exposes them and the enterprise WAN to sophisticated cyber-attacks.
