Customers are factoring cost into their WAN decisions more than ever, according to a new study.

Aryaka Networks released its sixth State of the WAN survey, which revealed interesting results about how enterprise customers are navigating hybrid work and a multicloud world. For example, 64% of IT leaders are deploying secure access service edge (SASE) or plan to deploy it in 2022. SASE brings together advanced security and networking features into a single, cloud-based platform.

The survey queried 1,600 IT decision makers across the globe.
