The ability to monitor and manage network and application performance across the network stack when implementing an SD-WAN solution is another key consideration when it comes to security. While not necessarily a direct security solution, SD-WAN performance monitoring may help surface unusual behaviors, reveal compromised admin accounts, and identify potential threats that may slip through the net of manually configured and monitored WANs.

Traditional monitoring is primarily focused with keeping the lights on and delivering a great Quality of Service (QoS) to network users. With SD-WAN’s improved access to application specific network configuration, Quality of Experience (QoE) in the delivery of those applications to the end user has grown in importance. However, this requires IT pros to gain new skills to maintain a holistic view of the expanded network stack.

Only then may they be aware of both potential security threats, be in position to provide great network and application performance and assure the SD-WAN rollout is a success.

SD-WAN seems to be delivering on its transformation promises better than some other heavily hyped software actuation technologies (and winning over many skeptical traditional network administrators in the process).

While automation is a big selling point of SD-WAN, the new approach won’t solve every issue alone. It’s vital when rolling out SD-WAN to have a clear view of your organization’s objectives and how to do it securely.
