SD-WANs can do double-duty in being a change agent for security. This can be accomplished by tackling two persistent cost-impacting security issues—ineffectiveness and inefficiency attributed to the expanding sprawl of security technologies and rising personnel costs—through convergence, automation, and simplification.
