International Data Corporation (IDC) estimates that worldwide Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) revenues will exceed $6 billion in 2020.
SD-WAN makes it simple for organizations to use different network technologies to connect their remote offices and/or branches to one another via Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) for critical data requiring enterprise grade performance and security, and commercial broadband over the internet for all other data types. In addition, SD-WAN helps accelerate hybrid cloud adoption by facilitating vendor- and technology-agnostic data transport over any WAN or internet circuit.
While IT leaders are excited about the lower costs and increased efficiencies enabled by this technology, they are unsure if SD-WAN will increase the attack surface of their network and open up new vulnerabilities as they connect to the various cloud providers.
Join us for a webinar on July 24 to meet Ben Hendrick, Partner & Global Competency Leader Infrastructure & Endpoint Security at IBM Security and Chirstina Richmond, Program Director for IDC’s Security Services as they discuss some of the steps that you can take in order to secure your SD-WAN infrastructure.
