Cyber threats are growing along attack surfaces at an exponential rate. Security concerns are paramount and global, as all industries become more dependent on connectivity to the cloud – connectivity that spans geographies, time zones and blurs the lines between virtualized and physical networks.

In this session, Zeev Draer and a panel of industry leaders will cover new strategies as the trend towards security-as-a-service emerges. They will discuss the challenges raised by architectures with dynamic edge capabilities delivered by SD-WAN as an overlay service.
