Mixing SD-WAN appliances and security

March 20th, 2016

Drew Conry-Murray, a blogger with Packet Pushers, recently reviewed Cato Networks’ new SD-WAN appliance offering for unified security. The new service hosts firewalling and URL filtering in points of presence through Amazon’s cloud. It calls its 1 Gbps deployed physical or virtual SD-WAN appliances “sockets.” Each socket can support multiple links. Interestingly, Cato does not support MPLS. “We want MPLS to die,” Cato co-founder and CTO Gur Shatz told Conry-Murray.
