As more companies expand their infrastructure to support branches, extending corporate security to the WAN is critical to protect against vulnerabilities. To defend against malware and more advanced threats, here are three steps to follow to effectively manage your enterprise WAN:

  1. Encrypt. Be sure to use automatic encryption to scale secure connectivity across all sites.
  2. Stay up to date. Just like updates to software, make sure you keep abreast of system updates and patch applications and servers across the WAN regularly.
  3. Watch utilization. To stay ahead of attacks, monitor your network capacity; the constant end-to-end insights will enable you to spot deviations that can impact how things are working.

WAN security should be looked at holistically, not in a vacuum. By applying the same security standards as you do to all other infrastructure components, you’ll keep security issues top of mind for comprehensive threat management.
