SD-WAN security service adoption is still maturing. However, as 5G networks that utilize an application-centric services model are further commercialized, SD-WAN security capabilities will only increase in value and relevance.

Read this custom research report from Heavy Reading’s chief analyst Jim Hodges, which among many other findings reveals:

  • A large majority of survey respondents believe it is either “extremely important” (18%-40%) or “important” (42%-55%) that their SD-WAN solution supports security services
  • Only 8% of service providers plan not to integrate their SD-WAN security services into their security as a service (SECaaS) portfolio
  • While there is some general support for service-chaining security VNFs, the range of “may offer” (38%-48%) responses indicate that many service providers have still not decided if the service-chaining path is viable

Explore these findings in detail and discover other insights from around the world in the full report.
