As enterprises embrace digital transformation, they become increasingly more vulnerable to security breaches as their attack surface expands. Cloud, SaaS applications, more connections across diverse locations – these all increase exposure for a global enterprise needing to protect both mission-critical applications and traffic.

SD-WAN is one of the hottest topics in networking today, with numerous articles, presentations, and webinars touting its many benefits. By and large, by focusing almost exclusively on these benefits, the bigger picture view of SD-WAN as a transformational technology is often lost.

This session explains SD-WAN from the big picture, emphasizing the truly unique and revolutionary aspects of this important technology.

12:10 am: Telecom Expense Management
