Integrated WAN Edge security
Forty-eight percent of all corporate data is stored in the cloud2. While this strategy simplifies data access across your branches, it also extends your attack surface by exposing it to the internet. To protect your network without swelling your IT budget, you need a comprehensive, multi-layer security strategy. Citrix SD-WAN increases your security posture with an integrated stateful firewall. This allows you to centrally define policies that limit or reject traffic by applications and zones. By extending your security to the WAN Edge, you protect your branches while still delivering great network performance.
Ensure branch compliance
No breach is inexpensive, but when you have specific data compliance requirements from HIPAA, PCI-DSS, and GDPR, a breach could cost you millions–in fact, the average cost of a healthcare data breach is $429 per record3. That’s why Citrix offers integrated and advanced security functionality at the branch. From a single pane of glass, you can manage IDS/IPS, URL Filtering, and malware blocking. And because Citrix SD-WAN is an SDN/NFV-ready platform, your SecOps team can choose from several industry-leading, third-party, next-gen virtual firewalls.
Break out from the WAN Edge
It’s important to protect your branches against threats that may come through internet or cloud connections. In addition to its built-in firewall, Citrix SD-WAN automates connectivity to industry-leading cloud-based secure web gateways for your branches. Because provisioning is handled from Citrix SD-WAN Orchestrator, your network is just a few clicks away from being connected to local security enforcement points. This provides strong SD-WAN security for your users, apps, and data at the branch, without compromising their SaaS user experience.
