Dimensional Data Survey: SD-WAN Adoption Is Accelerating To Reduce Security Risk

A recent survey found that over 90% of enterprises will look to have deployed SD-WAN by 2019. The challenges of complexity, WAN costs and security are key issues identified by the business and IT leaders that participated.

Over 50% of the companies responding also identified that there was a network security breach in the branch with many identifying that direct Internet access was also deployed. A possible solution to mitigate the risk is a comprehensive secure software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) solution that integrates both networking and security (SD-Security).
