Cisco SD-WAN Security Lab

Solution Overview

The Cisco SD-WAN Security Lab is a capability of the Advanced Technology Center (ATC) designed to provide an environment to gain hands-on experience with the security features of Cisco's SD-WAN solution. The environment that supports the lab is completely virtual, removing any hardware dependencies associated with physical infrastructure.

Cisco has made great strides in adding advanced security features into their SD-WAN portfolio. The solution contains the ability to isolate paths, deploy a built-in enterprise firewall, setup intrusion detection and prevention, filter web content and analyze files for malware. WWT's Cisco SD-WAN Security Lab will teach you how to activate these features and use them effectively.
