VeloCloud Networks has added several members to the VeloCloud SD-WAN Security Technology Partner Program, including Symantec, VMware and Forcepoint.
They join inaugural members IBM Security, Check Point Software Technologies, Fortinet and Zscaler.
The SD-WAN Security Technology Partner Program blends enterprise SD-WAN architecture with the world’s best-of-breed security solutions, which enables enterprises to run advanced wide area networks that incorporate security at the edge, at the data center and in the cloud, all under a single uniform business policy.
The resulting SD-WAN solution strengthens security by simplification and automation while reducing costs related to box sprawl and manual operations. Thus, the SD-WAN Security Technology Partner Program spans 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 security operations centers, SIEM solutions and security analytics.
IBM Security also added VeloCloud SD-WAN integration with its IBM QRadar SIEM solution to offer as part of its managed security services solution for large customers globally. And, VeloCloud is also part of the Symantec Technology Integration Partner Program (TIPP), which fosters technical integrations ranging from startups to incumbent vendors; and, joined the VMware Solution Exchange (VSX), gaining VMware Ready status for VMware NFV as well.
“TPx Communications has been at the forefront of network, cloud and services technology,” said Jared Martin, vice president of ITx Managed Services for TPx Communications, a VeloCloud service provider partner. “TPx Communications is taking a leadership role, again, as a VeloCloud Powered SD-WAN provider and by delivering cloud security services based on best-of-breed technologies from the VeloCloud SD-WAN Security Technology Partner Program.”
