AvidThink Report provides insights into Enterprise Edge and Cloud Networking
In this updated edition of our enterprise edge and cloud networking report (previously our SD-WAN/SASE report), we take a comprehensive look at the market from various perspectives. Despite the continuously evolving terminology, our primary objective remains unchanged—to provide enterprise and service provider readers with up-to-date insights and practical strategies to navigate the rapidly changing landscape of the industry. Amidst the fast-paced market evolution, prevalent misinformation, and pervasive confusion, we strive to shed light on the intricacies of the field and equip our readers with the knowledge necessary to make informed decisions.
Networking and security vendors, as well as managed service providers (MSPs), offer a variety of solutions to alleviate today’s enterprise networking challenges at the edge and in the cloud. They employ acronyms such as SD-WAN, SASE, SSE, ZTNA, and MCN, and these solutions may incorporate additional security features denoted by CASB, DLP, SWG, RBI, FWaaS, and micro-segmentation. Even as providers present Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) as a unifying term for these multifaceted solutions, the term has become diluted and ambiguous. This alphabet soup of acronyms further complicates matters for diligent CISOs, as vendors continuously redefine and reclassify categories to suit their needs.
