Networking and Security are Converging in the Cloud: Are You Ready?

The power of cloud and connectivity


Analyst Report by Frost & Sullivan

In Frost & Sullivan’s 2020 Global Cloud Survey, 52% of the respondents said they have deployed cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and 42% said they currently use hybrid cloud. As COVID-19 has permanently altered where and how people work, the network needs to transform along with the workforce.

With the shift to a work-from-anywhere model, the enterprise perimeter – and security threats – extend beyond traditional location-based and data center-based infrastructure. SASE addresses the need for centralized, software-defined security architecture. In this white paper, Frost & Sullivan discusses the market and technology trends driving the need for SASE, the power of SD-WAN and security together, and the value proposition of VMware’s cloud-delivered, gateway-centric approach to SD-WAN that offers a superior SASE solution for global businesses.
