Enterprises realize that legacy networks and security architectures are inadequate and cannot provide the necessary security and performance in a user and application environment that has become highly distributed, interactive, and mobile across the Internet.

As a result, enterprises are thinking differently about networking and security. Instead of considering them as separate toolsets to be deployed once and infrequently changed, the problem and solution space is conceptualized along a continuum in the emerging view. The vendor community has responded with a new architecture called secure access service edge (SASE) that merges SD-WAN networking and SWG network security into a cloud-based secure connectivity platform.

To take advantage of the opportunities in this market, equipment vendors, service providers, and financial institutions need to answer critical business questions, including:

  • What technologies are SASE technologies replacing? Which ones does is it compliment?
  • How fast are enterprises adopting SASE?
  • What are the motivations for service providers to offer SASE services, and will SASE cannibalize other offerings?
  • Which traditional vendors are dipping their toes into SASE, and which are diving headlong?
  • What role will adjunct service revenue play for vendors?
  • How large is the SASE market, and what will be catalysts for and inhibitors to growth?
  • Which vendors lead the market, and why?
  • Do SASE and SD-WAN technologies replace or complement enterprise branch networking products such as access routers and firewalls?

To answer these and other important questions, Dell’Oro Group delivers both quarterly reports and 5-year forecasts on the SASE and SD-WAN markets.
