STOCKHOLM, Sweden, September 28, 2020: In response to cloud/SaaS concerns related to the work-from-home trend, companies are planning to make considerable new investments in security solutions, according to a new survey of Chief Information and Security Officers (CISOs) and other IT security practitioners, released today by Enea and Cybersecurity Insiders. Specifically, an overwhelming 90 percent of respondents report plans for new cloud-based security solutions, and 82 percent intend to make new investments in on-premises security.
Among planned investments, an additional 35 percent of companies will join the 28 percent who have already done so in deploying virtualized, software-defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) to provide unified connectivity across home, branch, edge, data center and multi-cloud infrastructure. 25 percent of respondents also plan to subscribe to a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution, joining the 17 percent who have already adopted SASE, which incorporates or integrates with SD-WAN to deliver unified networking and security as a cloud service, with the dynamic scaling and provisioning that accompany all SaaS solutions.
