2023 SASE Trends Report
Beating Expectations on Security While Easing IT Ops
This whitepaper explores new research from Foundry (IDG CIO Community) and Comcast Business revealing that network security and remote connectivity have replaced cloud security and innovation as the top challenges driving interest in adoption of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solutions. Based on a survey of 257 IT decision-makers, the research finds that when deployed SASE is exceeding expectations in critical areas, including IT operations, user experience, and remote work connectivity. Three noteworthy takeaways from the report include:
- Operational benefits of SASE may help alleviate persistent cybersecurity staffing challenges.
- There is an ongoing need to adopt more robust cybersecurity measures to secure data, networks, and cloud environments because of hybrid and remote work.
- There is a strong preference for working with a managed service provider (MSP) for SASE deployment and ongoing management.
