The rise in the usage of cloud applications, has led to the increase in direct-to-internet connections. SD-WAN security with physical boxes at all locations is cost prohibitive. HCL has partnered with one of the leading vendors, Zscaler, to enable its customers to shift from a traditional hub-and-spoke architecture to an agile and direct-to-internet architecture by providing the entire outbound security stack as a cloud delivered service. This brings the entire security stack close to the user, ensuring identical data protection for users wherever they connect. The solution scales elastically to enable rapid deployment of new features (such as bandwidth control or data loss prevention) without impacting performance. This solution integrates with most of the SD-WAN providers to provide secure local internet breakouts and gives full protection from web and internet threats.
