What to Look for in a Secure SD-WAN Solution for Multi-Cloud Environments

Cloud adoption is becoming an increasingly large part of CIO budgets, to the point where some enterprise organizations are using many different cloud environments to build their IT infrastructure. A multi-cloud model involves the custom selection of multiple cloud services to serve specific functions. Enterprises today have almost entirely embraced multi-cloud for its flexibility—93% currently have a multi-cloud strategy in place. However, connecting workloads on multiple clouds at the data-center WAN edge creates several challenges, including deployment complexity, inconsistent network performance, and expensive connectivity.

Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) can help facilitate adoption of multi-cloud deployments while simplifying WAN infrastructure and reducing connectivity costs. But in order to be successful, SD-WAN needs to be kept secure.
