Gartner Research Note: Four Architectures to Secure SD-WAN

Corporate networks are stretched thin by cloud services, SaaS applications, and mobility. Plus, organizations require better connections to branch offices to deliver higher-quality network services. SD-WAN is more agile and cost-effective than traditional networking solutions, but there are challenges, especially around security.

Gartner’s research note explores the challenges that are transforming SD-WAN and discusses four SD-WAN architectures. Fortinet’s Secure SD-WAN matches two of the architectures:
  • Firewall with embedded SD-WAN
  • SD-WAN with third-party firewall
