FORTINET SECURE SD-WAN FOR DISTRIBUTED NETWORK ARCHITECTURES
By the end of 2019, 50% of enterprises will use SD-WAN technology across their remote sites—up from less than 1% today. However, the performance and convenience gains of SD-WAN over traditional WAN come largely at the expense of centralized security provided by backhauling network traffic through the data center, where everything can be checked and filtered in one place. And while the use of public links for direct internet access in an SD-WAN architecture provides improved options for enterprise-wide delivery of cloud applications, this also introduces new vulnerabilities and an expanded attack surface.
