SD-WAN Adoption Grows Alongside Cloud Uptake
Analysis who are tracking the SD-WAN market are projecting strong growth for SD-WAN through 2024, Orans said.
'When I take inquiries on adopting these cloud-delivered security services, what I'm hearing is that in conjunction with the WAN rearchitecture and moving security from the data center up to the cloud, that you're adopting SD-WAN,' he explained.
SASE is driving the market convergence. Network-as-a-service and network security-as-a-service are two projects often done at the same time, he continued. An SD-WAN project will be done when the user is moving to a cloud-delivered secure Web gateway or a CASB service.
Convergence can mean different things to different people. Some network security vendors are buying SD-WAN vendors, Orans noted, so some acquisitions are consolidating the market. Partnerships are also bringing together network and network security vendors. For many organizations, the most strategic decision in moving security to the cloud is deciding on a cloud secure Web gateway or cloud proxy.
