Single-vendor SASE delivers converged network and security capabilities to connect and secure distributed users, devices, and locations to resources in the cloud, edge, and on-premises. This September 2022 guide from Gartner details the emerging single-vendor SASE market, including key stats and findings.
Gartner research offers details on the emerging single-vendor SASE market.
Key findings include the following:
- The market for well-architected single-vendor SASE offerings is immature but developing quickly, and SASE interest among our clients has been growing rapidly.
- Multiple providers now have a single-vendor SASE offering; but few offer the required breadth and depth of functionality with integration across all components, a single management plane, and unified data model and data lake.
- Most leading SD-WAN vendors have added a cloud-based security stack to build out a single-vendor SASE, and a few security service edge (SSE) vendors have acquired SD-WAN to deliver single-vendor SASE.
- There are three primary options for SASE adoption — a single-vendor offering, explicit pairing of two vendors (one for network services, one for security services), and managed SASE.
- Demand for single-vendor SASE tends to come from: smaller enterprises that don’t have strongly siloed network and security teams and don’t require best-of-breed across all capabilities, and from architecture teams in large global multinationals.
