Re: SD-WAN Discussion
Agreed. And security is and always will be hugely important and crucial to the company.

Re: SD-WAN Discussion
@John: It generally depends upon particularized circumstances -- especially in highly regulated industries (e.g., warnings, history of prior intrusions, etc.) and related rubrics (e.g., HIPAA).

Re: SD-WAN Discussion
I am not an expert on data privacy, but my understanding is the laws are more about data storage rather than privacy during transmission. Obviously IPSEC does encrypt the data during transmission.

Re: SD-WAN Discussion
@John thanks for the thorough response. Are the industries generally specific to industries to to particular regions? For example would the stricter data privacy regulations in the EU translate into businesses having to keep more of their network data private than in their American counterparts?

Re: SD-WAN Discussion
Orange serves mainly multi-national/global organizations, within our customer base I would say the majority, but certainly not all, have embraced some kind of hybrid network design. That could be using internet and IPSEC as a back up/offload or less likely using split tunneling to push internet traffic directly from the site to the internet.

The main deciding factor on how far a given customer will go depends largely on their security policy. Many of our customers have policies that preclude them from doing split tunneling or even having internet anywhere but in their data centers - that obviously limits the possibilities.

I often ask customers what percentage of their WAN traffic is destined for the internet and it's typically between 50 and 80%. Using expensive private network to transport that traffic isn't the most cost effective solution. These percentages continue to grow as customers leverage SaaS and IaaS - which puts "mission critical" applications outside the private network.  

I'm not advocating for a specific design though - security policies are there for a reason, we have to play within those boundaries.
