Designing Flexible, Secure Networks for Remote Work

Security concerns around SD-WAN have slowed its deployment in the public sector.

Software Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) have been very successful as an enterprise solution in the commercial world, but security concerns and the government’s former emphasis on working in offices has slowed its deployment in the public sector. Now, however, with large parts of the federal workforce working remotely, demand for access to the public internet has dramatically increased. Release of new interim guidance about TIC 3.0 and its use with public networks has created opportunities for agencies to design flexible, software defined networks to better serve the workforce and secure their infrastructure.

G. Nagesh Rao, Chief Information Officer (Acting) for the Bureau of Industry joins Vernon Samuel, RavenTek’s VP of Service Delivery, and Marlin McFate, Riverbed Technology’s Public Sector CTO, for an informative hour on how agencies can securely modernize their networks.
