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.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
