With RSA San Francisco—one of, if not the biggest security show of the year—behind us, it’s a good time to revisit security and SD-WANs. I know, we already lived through Yoda’s prognostications about the future of networking and security. In that blog post, we spoke about vendor approaches to securing the new Internet connections created by SD-WAN. There’s another dimension, though, to SD-WAN security that we didn’t discuss and that’s about the WAN.
