Maintaining ubiquitous connectivity with remote sites has never be so important. Software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) has already proven itself as the technology that delivers on this promise, with cost savings and application prioritization making it hard to ignore.

Taking the time to observe the seven key steps in this checklist can not only avoid these downsides but also reinforces the CISO’s role in the digital innovation process.
