SFW: Safe for WANs

By Jayne MillerFeb 1, 2021


What do you think of when you think of integrating security into the WAN?

WAN Dynamics' Jason Gintert sees a changing connectivity landscape that presents no shortage of challenges to security teams. 

The good news is that there seems to be an almost equal measure of new security strategies and tools taking shape.  

Jason cites a handful of changes in newer platforms—like service chaining capabilities and open APIs that allow WAN and security teams to exchange information—as answers to evolving security challenges.  

"The cool thing is that it seems like the WAN and the security stack are merging in some ways. There are more open integrations to a lot of those platforms now where you can tie the security elements you need in multiple places," said Jason in the latest episode of our WAN Manager Podcast.
