When Interop gears up tomorrow in New York, you can bet your trade-show tchotchkes that software defined networking (SDN) will dominate airtime as one of the prevalent themes. Many vendors and pundits will push the performance and operational boosts from SDN as the most obvious benefits of SDN strategies. But as organizations roll up their sleeves and dig into the technology and architecture of SDN, they could find that the biggest opportunity for improving IT through it may actually be in security.

SDN could act as a natural technological extension of the accelerating trend toward segmentation, says Reuven Harrison, CTO of Tufin Technologies.
