SD-WAN helps to maintain visibility of the entire network and recognizes patterns in the flow of information, Sanchez says in a video interview with Information Security Media Group.

As a CISO at one of the early providers of SD-WAN services, Sanchez offers insights on:

  • How SD-WAN helps to resolve security issues;
  • Use cases for integrating SD-WAN with other frameworks to ensure secure access;
  • How to establish identity and authentication methods using SD-WAN.
