Every minute of every day, legitimate enterprises defend themselves against adversaries determined to breach their organizations’ defenses, compromise networks, steal data and drain resources, financial and otherwise. Many of the attacks go undetected, levelled by nation states and other sophisticated actors skilled at evading notice. They stealthily attack global supply chains, network endpoints and devices connected to the Internet of Things. Federal agencies are as vulnerable to these attacks as anyone.

Federal agencies are looking to software defined wide area networks (SD-WAN) to advance digital modernization, to shore up network security and to comply with policies such as TIC 3.0. These networks are appealing because they are a virtual network that allows multiple types of communication service --including broadband and cellular-- to connect users to their applications and data directly through the internet rather than via a dedicated wired network. To optimize SD-WAN’s benefits, some analysts propose converging security solutions and network service provider functions into a single “hand in glove” functional entity called Secure SD-WAN.

With the evolution of data science, defense organizations can now take full advantage of advanced analytics to optimize readiness mission planning. Breakthroughs in data science have made advanced analytics more technologically feasible, cost effective, and practical to adopt. In order to fully operationalize data science for readiness planning, organizations must consider more than just the technology alone. Incorporating the nature of the individual defense organization and its unique readiness requirements into the data science capability is essential for mission success.
