MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- VeloCloud Networks, Inc., the Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN company, today introduced the SD-WAN Security Technology Partner Program, along with inaugural partnerships with security industry leaders, including IBM Security, Check Point Software Technologies, Fortinet, and Zscaler.

The SD-WAN Security Technology Partner Program blends the industry's most flexible enterprise SD-WAN architecture with the world's premier security solutions. VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN enables enterprises to securely run advanced wide area networks that support application growth, network agility, and simplified branch office deployments by partnering with best-of-breed security technology leaders. Enterprises will now be able to implement SD-WAN with their preferred interoperable security products covering branch, data center and cloud security.

As an example, VeloCloud is working with IBM Security to deliver Secure SD-WAN service from IBM Managed Security Services, enabling enhanced zero-trust security and improved network performance with significant reduction in operational and telecom circuit costs. With VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN, enterprises can better secure their wide area networks and experience dramatically improved quality of service.

VeloCloud's vision of the SD-WAN Security Technology Partner Program spans all three parts of the SD-WAN security framework comprising network, cloud and management. This includes network security interoperability in the branch and security VNF integration on the VeloCloud Edge; Cloud security via direct connect from branch to cloud and security in IaaS through VeloCloud Edges and VeloCloud Gateways; and interfaces to leading Security Operations Centers, SIEM solutions and security analytics.

Recognizing the strong demand for interoperability with existing and future security solutions, VeloCloud established a scalable framework that allows enterprises to seamlessly integrate their preferred security technology with Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN. Technology Partners have access to the extensible VeloCloud Technology Partner SD-WAN API (orchestration, control & data) and SDK, along with the VeloCloud VNF framework. Partners can also enable integration and service insertion with the VeloCloud VNF-ready Platform Development Framework supporting integrated security VNF.

VeloCloud also recently joined Fortinet's Fabric-Ready Partner Program. As a Fabric-Ready partner, VeloCloud has worked closely with Fortinet to validate technology integration and ensure ongoing interoperability with Fortinet's flexible FortiHypervisor platform. This deep integration is an example of how VeloCloud and Fortinet collaborate to deliver advanced security for distributed enterprise networks and leverage the benefits of agility, simplicity and automation provided by cloud-delivered SD-WAN.

In addition, as a Check Point Open Platform for Security (OPSEC) partner, VeloCloud is a member of a multi-vendor security framework guaranteeing customers the broadest choice of best-of-breed integrated applications and deployment platforms.

Plus, VeloCloud has a successful joint solution with Zscaler, providing customers with secure direct internet access to both on-premises and cloud hosted services.

VeloCloud Registered Channel Partners such as MetTel and EarthLink (now Windstream) can take advantage of the SD-WAN Security Technology Partner Program to deliver best-in-class differentiated solutions to a broad set of customers.

"Security is top of mind for all IT departments, especially in large, multinational enterprises, said Sanjay Uppal, VeloCloud Co-founder & CEO. "Enterprise WAN architectures are undergoing a significant refresh and VeloCloud's technology brings together the world's best-in-class security on a SD-WAN platform that is architected for the WAN of the future.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
