Cisco is seeking to integrate more security into its offering for the exploding SD-WAN space with a multi-prong effort based on new hardware and software initiatives.As the software-defined networking (SDN) movement has transformed enterprise networking, its reach has expanded to include wide-area networks (WANs) beyond in-house datacenter/campus connections. The resulting SD-WAN market sees SDN-associated benefits such as lower costs and flexibility in new services that are replacing specialized, proprietary systems.One thing those legacy systems had in their favor, however, was integrated security, which Cisco hopes to provide in its revamped SD-WAN effort. The company said it's evolving its security products to offer the same protection that enterprises used to enjoy with proprietary WAN solutions, but in the new cloud-based, Internet-powered networking arena. The company coined the term "cloud edge" to describe the intersection of networking and security that organizations must deal with as business users must now rely on the Internet to connect them with business-critical applications in a variety of locations.
