In conjunction with our partner Converge! Network Digest, AvidThink is pleased to announce our seventh site in the Next-Generation Infrastructure series: the 2020 SD-WAN and SASE Resource Site and Report.
The Next-Gen SD-WAN and SASE Resource Site and Report provides technology readers with perspectives and insights from industry leaders and innovators like Aryaka, Asavie, now part of Akamai, Juniper Networks, Lumen Technologies, Nuage Networks from Nokia, and Opengear as well as telecommunication organizations in the space including AT&T, PCCW Global, NTT, and more. We’ll be rotating in new content periodically from thought leaders, as well as our sponsors and partners, so keep your eye on the site as we bring you the latest insights into SD-WAN and SASE. Also, a shout-out to our partners at the MEF, for making available unique SD-WAN and SASE content from their members!
The SD-WAN and SASE Report provides an update to last year’s SD-WAN report, first examining current enterprise viewpoints, followed by service provider trends. We also examine the rapidly changing vendor ecosystem and provide our observations of the market at large. For our enterprise customers, check out our recommendations on charting a safe course through the rest of 2020 and into 2021.
In particular, 2020 has been a unique turning point for SD-WAN because of the shift in enterprise networking endpoints from branch to home, but also in SD-WAN’s expansion to Secure Access Service Edge (SASE). SD-WAN and the broader category of enterprise end-to-end connectivity are evolving rapidly. This rapid evolution makes it harder for enterprises, service providers, and the market to track the trends that matter.
We view that SD-WAN, which was once seen as a cost-control measure to counter often exorbitant prices for enterprise WAN circuits, will evolve into SASE and become a critical enabler for digital business and distributed workforces. No matter how the overall space evolves, SD-WAN is in the midst of the most rapid, dynamic changes yet as enterprises simultaneously shift to cloud services and remote work.
Download the report and learn about SD-WAN’s evolution to Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), the multiple capabilities each encompasses, and recommendations to assist in formulating your SD-WAN/SASE strategy.
