Re: First mover advantage
I think it is getting better lately. Younger generation is showing more interest to get into cyber security programs in colleges. That is a good development. In reality security industry has a big demand but not many are aware of that.

Re: First mover advantage
I think that there is such perception about security with in companies. Security is being perceived as not a cool things and not a required thing as well. That is a major conern right now. That has to chnage so companies can treat security importantly.

> "That should raise an alert as well."

Of course, that just adds to the complexity that new technologies like SD-WAN bring -- in this case, by adding to alert fatigue that already trends high throughout enterprise IT organizations

Which is not to disagree with the points here. Just pointing out that these are other issues that need resolution concurrently.

This is actually a big problem in getting devs interested in security features. It's a big part of the reason why, for instance, open-source security bugs proliferate and go unnoticed for so long -- because features are far more fun to code and review than security measures are.

First mover advantage
"SD-WAN is real, it's mature, and it's generally secure. But like with any technology, it's not one-size-fits-all, and it's up to you to make sure that you can trust it. Be sure you know what you need before signing that contract. And again, don't simply choose the one that has the most bits in its encryption algorithms. While impressive, that's arguably the least important bullet-point in SD-WAN security."


I think the interesting dilemma with security technologies is that they're not as cool as some of the other technologies. Companies don't look to be the first ones to adopt them and they're generally skeptical about being the first ones.  There's no real first-mover advantage to do so. They'd rather wait for the tech to be mature and stable. Same goes for SD-WAN I think. It will take a while before companies start to make it mainstream.
