If you are sending data over a “private” Wide Area Network (WAN) there is a dirty little secret your service provider doesn’t want you to know about. The truth is that these so-called private WANs offer no inherent security and they aren't really even private.

If your company is assuming it’s data is safe as it traverses a service provider’s “private” network, this paper is a must read.

The paper:

  • Explains the basics of what MPLS actually is and how it works
  • Dispels the myths surrounding MPLS (and other forms of WAN) security
  • Provides information on how to secure your data without impacting MPLS and network performance or availability

Readers will benefit by gaining a clear understanding of the security shortcomings of MPLS and other "private" networks and learning how to protect their data without compromising network and application performance.
