Security is front of mind for all businesses, from the lock on the front door to the passwords protecting the network. With the future of networking showing off the potential of a software-defined reality, it’s important to not simply ensure security, but also the responsible care of customer data.




Windstream Enterprise (News - Alert) announced its SD-WAN service has achieved PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) 3.2 Compliance. Reported by an independent, third-party QSA (Qualified Security Assessor), PCI (News - Alert) compliance is a requirement.

As organizations strive to meet rigorous demands of compliance, deploying an SD-WAN capable of promising the regulations are met, and customer data is handled properly is a crucial step. The Windstream SD-WAN service paired with the remainder of the networking firm’s portfolio put together a formidable offering for any digital first enterprise.

“Data security is an increasing concern for all businesses, and customers, regardless of their industry, can have confidence that our SD-WAN solution has been proven to meet or exceed strict security standards,” said Mike Frane, vice president of product management for Windstream Enterprise. “This represents another significant point of differentiation for Windstream Enterprise’s SD-WAN solution, further reinforcing our commitment to lead with the agility businesses should demand of their service providers.”

Intelligent, adaptive, intent-based networking is what will shape the coming years of enterprise networks. SD-WAN is critical to this evolution at hand, what’s in your WAN?
