Wide Area Network (WAN) design has always included security as an integral part of every architecture.  As enterprises and service providers work to implement Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) for its many benefits, security continues to be a critical part of these WAN designs.

SD-WAN architectures incorporate a variety of approaches to enable and deliver the integration of security, including methodologies from distributed on premises security to the insertion of public cloud and private cloud security. 

In this webinar, leading industry analyst Zeus Kerravala discusses the pros and cons of various SD-WAN security architectural approaches, and considerations for choosing the best approach for your implementation.

Join us and you will: 

  • Get a review of approaches to securing your WAN environments
  • Learn how to build a secure WAN infrastructure with SD-WAN
  • Get an opportunity to have your questions answered by Zeus Kerravala

The corporate wide area network (WAN) is a major source of frustration and budget drain for IT organizations, but it doesn't have to be that way. New technology is emerging to apply the concepts of software-defined networking to the traditional WAN to allow traffic to run over a mix of public broadband, private MPLS and other types of links and to increase flexibility and control.

SD-WAN can dramatically reduce cost and increases the ability to rapidly bring new services online, connecting users to all types of applications, and speeding up time to market. But the idea of re-architecting the WAN can be daunting and the decision to adopt an SD-WAN solution can be a difficult one.

Join renowned network expert Ethan Banks, Co-Founder of Packet Pushers, and Rolf Muralt, VP Products Management SD-WAN at Silver Peak, in a webinar that discusses the SD-WAN market, lessons learned, and what features to be on the lookout for as you make your decision. They will discuss issues around technology selection and deployment, including:

  • How a zero-touch, hybrid or SD-WAN can leverage multiple connectivity forms
  • Ways to prioritize and route traffic across different connections
  • Quality of Service (QoS), and how to maintain 100% uptime
  • Best practices for transitioning with minimal impact on budget and resources
  • Real customer examples that demonstrate different deployment stage and benefits

IT organizations have long been challenged by the cost and complexity of managing the enterprise wide area network (WAN), and the demands keep growing. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) technology has emerged to reduce that cost and complexity, all while improving performance. With so many SD-WAN architectures to consider, how do you determine which is right for your organization?

Join our webinar on April 27th where Dr. Jim Metzler reviews the architectural distinctions among SD-WAN solutions on the market.

Attend and you will:

  • Assess your organization's WAN growth requirements
  • Understand the impact of various SD-WAN architecture on your WAN deployment
  • Compare SD-WAN vendors to determine the best fit for your enterprise
  • Learn how rethinking the WAN can deliver agility, simplicity, improved quality of experience, and better cloud performance
  • Discover the different architectures on the market, along with their benefits and drawbacks

You’ve studied, researched and learned a lot about SD-WAN.  Now it is time to put the vendors to the test and find out how their SD-WAN solution will really solve your problems.

Join us as Jim Metzler, analyst, researcher and founder at Ashton, Metzler & Associates, shares the tools, templates, and information you’ll want to include when you issue an RFI (request for information) to SD-WAN vendors. He discusses the architectural alternatives for implementing SD-WAN along with sharing his research and trends in wide area networking.

Attendees will learn to evaluate and outline their organization’s goals, guidelines and timetable in concise fashion. This will produce the most informative results in terms of overall solution architecture and WAN infrastructure, as well as management and security capabilities. They’ll leave with an actionable plan for engaging with and comparing vendors, and will be well equipped to make the best decisions about choosing and implementing SD-WAN technology.

This event is sponsored by VeloCloud, the Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN company and winner of this year’s Best Startup of Interop Award.
