VeloCloud Networks, Tuesday introduced the SD-WAN Security Technology Partner Program, along with inaugural partnerships with security industry leaders, including IBM Security, Check Point Software Technologies, Fortinet, and Zscaler.

Enterprises will now be able to implement SD-WAN with their preferred interoperable security products covering branch, data center and cloud security.

As an example, VeloCloud is working with IBM Security to deliver Secure SD-WAN service from IBM Managed Security Services, enabling enhanced zero-trust security and improved network performance with significant reduction in operational and telecom circuit costs. With VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN, enterprises can better secure their wide area networks and experience dramatically improved quality of service.

VeloCloud’s vision of the SD-WAN Security Technology Partner Program spans all three parts of the SD-WAN security framework comprising network, cloud and management. This includes network security interoperability in the branch and security VNF integration on the VeloCloud Edge; Cloud security via direct connect from branch to cloud and security in IaaS through VeloCloud Edges and VeloCloud Gateways; and interfaces to leading Security Operations Centers, SIEM solutions and security analytics.

Recognizing the strong demand for interoperability with existing and future security solutions, VeloCloud established a scalable framework that allows enterprises to seamlessly integrate their preferred security technology with Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN. Technology Partners have access to the extensible VeloCloud Technology Partner SD-WAN API (orchestration, control & data) and SDK, along with the VeloCloud VNF framework. Partners can also enable integration and service insertion with the VeloCloud VNF-ready Platform Development Framework supporting integrated security VNF.
