VeloCloud Networks, a leading SD-WAN company announced that Symantec, VMware and Forcepoint are among the latest members of VeloCloud SD-WAN Security Technology Partner Program.

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

The SD-WAN Security Technology Partner Program blends the VeloCloud's enterprise SD-WAN architecture with the world’s best-of-breed security solutions. 

IBM Security, a strategic VeloCloud technology partner delivering Secure SD-WAN services globally, has now added VeloCloud SD-WAN integration with its industry leading IBM QRadar SIEM solution to offer as part of its managed security services solution for Fortune 1000 customers globally.

VeloCloud is also part of the Symantec Technology Integration Partner Program (TIPP) which fosters deep technical integrations ranging from visionary startups to leading vendors and enhances enterprise customers’ ability to fight cybercrime.

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 Virtual Network Function (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.

In addition, VeloCloud said that it is already part of the VMware Solution Exchange (VSX) and has VMware Ready status for VMware Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). VMware vCloud NFV brings together the core virtualization and management components required to accelerate NFV deployment enabling Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) to deploy a unified, multi-vendor and multi-function NFV platform that supports any application at all stages of cloud evolution.
