For its latest cloud market trend report, leading analyst firm Futuriom surveyed nearly 200 qualified enterprise networking and security users to discover key needs for software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) and secure access service edge (SASE) in managed services.
Futuriom founder and principal analyst Scott Raynovich joins Aryaka's Director of Marketing Klaus Schwegler to highlight the key findings and what drives strong demand for SD-WAN and SASE managed services:
Managing network complexity is the largest challenge driving managed services demand
Hybrid work and the need for zero-trust network access (ZTNA) are key drivers of SD-WAN & SASE
Hybrid (cloud/edge deployment) and single-pass architectures will be important components of SASE & SD-WAN services going forward
