For digital enterprises, the percentage of network traffic that rides the physical corporate network is decreasing. This is dramatically shifting traffic patterns, which requires I&O leaders to explore new approaches to provide secure network connectivity. .
Download the Gartner report to learn what they predict in 2022 and what I&O leaders responsible for cloud and edge infrastructure should do about it.
Key findings for Infrastructure & Operations leaders:
The combination of work from anywhere (WFA) and cloud-based services means that enterprise users increasingly connect to their applications without ever physically traversing corporate-owned network devices.
Perimeter-based approaches to securing anywhere, anytime access has resulted in a patchwork of vendors, policies and consoles, creating complexity for security administrators and users.
Secure access service edge (SASE) converges networking and network security, and aligns with the requirements of digital enterprises. There is both high client interest (demand) and vendor investment/hype (supply) driving adoption.
