The recession isn’t deterring enterprises from investing in cloud services and network transformation, according to a recent survey by Aryaka Networks.
The vendor in its 2023 Report on Enterprise Network Transformation argued that the report of cloud’s demise may indeed be greatly exaggerated. Forty-seven percent of the 230 enterprises IT leaders surveyed said they plan to accelerate their adoption of cloud services.
“Regardless of the short-term direction of the economy, the survey ratifies the belief in long-term themes — technology leaders see a crucial need for cloud investment, hybrid work, the need for better applications performance, the need for better security, the decline of MPLS and the the arrival of NaaS as key long-term investments,” wrote the report’s authors.
Aryaka also touched on how customers are evolving toward secure access service edge (SASE) platforms. Those aforementioned platforms bring together advanced networking and remote access features – particularly software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) – with advanced security features – now known as security service edge. Aryaka asked its customers which cybersecurity features they feel most pressed to adopt, and secure web gateway came out on top.
The network transformation study replaces Aryaka’s annual State of the WAN report.
Channel Futures summarized some of the key findings from the survey in the slides above.
