SD-WAN certainly delivers in terms of network visibility, flexibility and scalability, but hackers can now exploit the fact that your devices are directly connected to the internet and your organisation may be exposed to fresh security vulnerabilities.
So how do you protect your critical assets and data from these new threat vectors?
Many organisations fail to reassess their security needs and leave themselves open to breaches such as a DDoS attack knocking out their network or a hacked SD-WAN site giving access to unencrypted customer traffic.
Robust SD-WAN security starts with an awareness of how internet connectivity brings increased vulnerability to cyberattack. Only then can you put mitigating defences in place.
We’ll secure your SD-WAN by identifying your exposure points, choosing the right level of protection and monitoring potential threats so you can respond quickly. With BT’s extensive experience securing thousands of networks across a variety of industries and verticals you can build security into your network from the beginning.
