Security-Defined Routing combines cyber analytics and SDN to protect the network: SDR technology assists organizations in scaling the delivery of network traffic to analytic security applications. When incidents are detected, changing the network forwarding tables through SDR techniques can provide an immediate remediation to network attacks, while automating the delivery of suspect traffic for transaction monitoring and archiving data for regulatory compliance and advance troubleshooting.
