April 19, 2018 / Jessica Lyons Hardcastle
Cisco likely has some type of bundled software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN)security product in the works. The “SD-WAN transition and the integration of security into that” are top of mind for the networking giant, he said, adding that there are “a lot of really interesting things we are doing between Viptela and Meraki on the SD-WAN side and Umbrella in cloud security.” Reed then rattled off SD-WAN drivers including telco cost savings and better user experience. “I want to enable that by allowing more direct internet access from the branch, from the user,” he said.
