Enterprises currently face challenges regarding the price, performance, and flexibility of traditional wide area networks (WANs). Aggressive growth in the adoption of public cloud services (a projected 86% spike between 2014 and 2018)1 is forcing organizations to look elsewhere for a more effective network solution to address distributed traffic across remote sites and branch offices. Some of the specific issues organizations face with their traditional WANs include: - High total cost of ownership (TCO) - Lengthy provisioning cycles - Performance degradation with the growth of cloud traffic - Inadequate redundancy and resiliency - Lack of application-aware connectivity To better manage WAN investments, enterprises are adopting a new approach for their distributed branch office networks. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) offers improved performance, agility, and operational flexibility plus significant cost savings. But not all SDWAN solutions are created equal.

When it comes to securing all the parts of a modern distributed network, endpoints remain the most vulnerable outlier. Mobility has brought a flood of different devices that cross in and out of enterprise networks on a daily basis. This public exposure, combined with inadequate traditional endpoint security and a high degree of user autonomy, makes these devices prime targets for malware infections and other forms of sophisticated attack that seek to exploit the broader organization. And threat actors are finding enormous success along these vectors. To stay competitive, most organizations are currently embracing digital transformation (DX)—including cloud services, smart Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and greater mobility. These adaptations provide organizations with faster and more seamless access to critical information, regardless of the device being used to access it. However, as distributed networks expand and become more difficult to manage, the endpoint remains a weak link i

The security perimeter once familiar to the enterprise has become incredibly fragmented. Data and applications reside everywhere: on the network, endpoints and in the cloud. The cloud, in particular, is seeing huge growth with enterprises adopting these environments at a rapid pace. According to Gartner, 55 percent of large enterprises will successfully implement an all-in cloud SaaS strategy by 2025.1 Combined with an increasingly mobile and global workforce, and more importantly, increasingly distributed SaaS cloud environments, organizations are now faced with securing a multitude of applications, users, devices and networks – all hosting sensitive data that is critical to business growth, reputation and customer trust.

Every few years a technology comes along that evolves the current approach to become more efficient and cost effective. Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) connects locations in a revolutionary way, but many “facts” about SD-WAN are more fantasy than reality. Read “5 Myths About Enterprise SD-WAN” for clarity around the advantages and limitations of SD-WAN and how Forcepoint helps with its implementation. For anyone that has ever had to worry about connecting a distributed network, software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) is a big deal. It’s a drastic upgrade to the status quo, efficiently connecting locations with existing network technology like commodity broadband and virtual private networks (VPNs).

Transforming Cloud Connectivity & Security in Distributed Networks Today’s digital transformation initiatives frequently begin with moving applications and data to the cloud. But traditional networking and security infrastructure, such as backhauling data from remote locations to central offices over MPLS lines, can’t keep up. Fortunately, new approaches that also move connectivity and security to the cloud are rapidly overcoming these hurdles. Technologies such as direct-to-cloud SD-WAN and site-to-site VPNs dramatically cut the cost of connectivity. However, they put pressure on other parts of the organization to adopt new ways of defending each site against internet intruders, protecting the use of web content, and securing data stored in cloud apps. In this webcast, we’ll discuss a new, integrated approach to connectivity and security. View the webinar today!

What is the key benefit of SD-WAN? To provide seamless access to digital services for end-users. But IT is more distributed, fragmentary, and dynamic than ever, with hybrid apps, hybrid networks, and remote and mobile users everywhere. Hardware-bound legacy networks can never fulfill the promise of seamless access. Taming the chaos of today’s IT requires a new approach to networking. This is the promise of software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN)—the ability to use plain-language business policies to automate and orchestrate all the components of digital access. Read this white paper to learn how SD-WAN lets you: • Manage centrally from a cloud console with a comprehensive view of your connectivity fabric that spans and unifies datacenter/cloud apps, branch/mobile users, and enterprise/cloud networks. • Orchestrate globally using business policy-based automation to define quality of service and access privileges for all apps/users. • Deploy locally with zero touch via automated
