According to a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center industries, the strong enterprise appetite for network and security transformation drove robust growth in SASE related SD-WAN networking and security service edge (SSE) security technologies.
“Even in an environment of macro-economic angst, enterprises continued to strategically invest in SASE technologies to secure and improve connectivity for cloud-based apps and hybrid work,” said Mauricio Sanchez, Research Director, Network Security, and SASE & SD-WAN at Dell’Oro Group. “Both SASE’s components, SSE and SD-WAN, saw more than 30 percent growth, showing enterprises value SASE’s network and security transformation benefits.”
