Most organizations are in the midst of some form of digital transformation (DX), transforming how they bring products and services to the market—and ultimately deliver value to their customers. But DX initiatives also bring complexity for the network operations team. With business-critical services distributed across multiple clouds, this leads to potential performance issues, especially at branch locations. Given these realities, it is no wonder that software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) technology is rapidly going mainstream. Unfortunately, SD-WAN is an example of the paradox of DX: transformative technology can potentially move the business to the next level, but the expanded attack surface it creates can expose the organization to significant risk. That is why an SD-WAN deployment, like every other DX effort, should be accompanied by a security transformation (SX) that rethinks outdated principles, broadens protection beyond the data center, and integrates the security archit

Enterprises currently face challenges regarding the price, performance, and flexibility of traditional wide area networks (WANs). Aggressive growth in the adoption of public cloud services (a projected 86% spike between 2014 and 2018)1 is forcing organizations to look elsewhere for a more effective network solution to address distributed traffic across remote sites and branch offices. Some of the specific issues organizations face with their traditional WANs include: - High total cost of ownership (TCO) - Lengthy provisioning cycles - Performance degradation with the growth of cloud traffic - Inadequate redundancy and resiliency - Lack of application-aware connectivity To better manage WAN investments, enterprises are adopting a new approach for their distributed branch office networks. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) offers improved performance, agility, and operational flexibility plus significant cost savings. But not all SDWAN solutions are created equal.

Cloud services are a pillar of a digital transformation, but they have also become a thorn in the side of many security architects. As data and applications that were once behind the enterprise firewall began roaming free—on smartphones, between Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices, and in the cloud—the threat landscape expanded rapidly. Security architects scrambled to adjust their technologies, policies, and procedures. But just when they thought they had a handle on securing their cloud-connected enterprises, new business imperatives indicated that one cloud wasn’t enough. Modern enterprises operate in a multi-cloud world, where the threat landscape has reached a new level of complexity. Security teams are juggling a hodgepodge of policies, threat reports, and management tools. When each cloud operates in its own silo, the security architect has even more difficulty supporting the CISO or CIO with a coherent, defensible security posture.

Companies are increasingly moving data and applications to public cloud platforms. Sometimes these transitions happen with IT’s approval and guidance; sometimes they don’t. Regardless, a company that stores data and uses applications in multiple public clouds creates a challenging environment for the security architect. It’s difficult to gain visibility and control of the security posture when the organization relies on an assortment of disparate cloud platforms that all take different approaches to security and offer different tools. And it’s hard for a small security staff to stay on top of disparate solutions that fail to integrate.

When it comes to securing all the parts of a modern distributed network, endpoints remain the most vulnerable outlier. Mobility has brought a flood of different devices that cross in and out of enterprise networks on a daily basis. This public exposure, combined with inadequate traditional endpoint security and a high degree of user autonomy, makes these devices prime targets for malware infections and other forms of sophisticated attack that seek to exploit the broader organization. And threat actors are finding enormous success along these vectors. To stay competitive, most organizations are currently embracing digital transformation (DX)—including cloud services, smart Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and greater mobility. These adaptations provide organizations with faster and more seamless access to critical information, regardless of the device being used to access it. However, as distributed networks expand and become more difficult to manage, the endpoint remains a weak link i

Enterprise chief information security officers (CISOs) are seeking ways to leverage existing security investments to bridge the divide between largely siloed security systems. The focus is on reducing the number of consoles needed to manage the security infrastructure. Network security vendors have a significant role to play in bridging the communication gap between these systems. The creation of a unified defense architecture enables threat data exchange between existing security systems. It helps automate the process of raising an organization's security posture when a security infrastructure component detects a threat. The following questions were posed by Fortinet to Robert Ayoub, program director in IDC's Security Products program, on behalf of Fortinet's customers.

Endpoint devices continue to be one of the favorite targets for cyberattacks. A successfully compromised laptop provides a foothold for a threat to move laterally and infect other endpoints within the organization. To address this critical vulnerability, security leaders must integrate endpoint security into their broader network security architecture. A deep connection between endpoint and network security offers key improvements to holistic enterprise protection. It provides risk-based visibility of all endpoint devices, establishes policy-based access controls, enables real-time threat intelligence sharing, and automates security responses and workflows for effective and efficient protection that conserves time and money.

If your organization is one of the 95% of enterprises that operate in the cloud, you are already grappling with cloud security. And if your organization is one of the 85% of companies that use multiple Infrastructureas-a-Service (IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) clouds, you have additional issues to consider. Compared to the days when organizations managed everything on-premises or only had a handful of cloud deployments, this new multi-cloud world exacerbates the expansion of the attack surface and makes threat containment and accountability more difficult. Further, pressure on security teams to protect everything in the multi-cloud environment is leading to reactive and expensive threat management. If you are a security leader tasked with meeting the challenges of a multi-cloud environment, eventually you’ll find that siloed cloud security strategies fall short of the mark. But don’t wait. Now is the time to consider a holistic security approach that reclaims control from dispa
