SD-WAN has come a long way in a very short period of time. Not only in terms of commercial adoption, but also in the scope of services supported.

One area that has undoubtedly fueled this growth is the integration of powerful security capabilities. In order to fully understand the impact of security services on SD-WAN implementation, in 4Q 2019, Heavy Reading, in collaboration with Amdocs, Fortinet, Lavelle Networks and Nuage Networks, created and fielded a comprehensive SD-WAN security-focused survey designed to provide granular insights into the state of SD-WAN security services.

This webinar will provide a readout of several key survey findings. Topics to be addressed include:

  • SD-WAN security service implementation timeline and anticipated growth metrics
  • SD-WAN security service integration models
  • Location preferences for deploying SD-WAN security services
  • Specific security service implementation priorities
  • Implementation challenges as well as service differentiation opportunities
  • Security VNF orchestration preferences
  • The role of analytics to enhance SD-WAN security service delivery
