A new report from the Dell’Oro Group predicts that the total Secure Access Services Edge (SASE) market will exceed US$13 billion by 2026, representing what it described as a “healthy CAGR.”
The report divides the market into its two technology components, Security Service Edge (SSE) and SD-WAN with SSE expected to double the SD-WAN revenue for SASE. It further breaks down the SSE market into FWaaS, SWG, CASB, and ZTNA.
“We see SASE continuing to thrive independent of the ongoing macro-economic uncertainty as enterprises strategically invest for the new age of distributed applications and hybrid work that need a different approach to connectivity and security,” said Mauricio Sanchez, research director, network security, and SASE & SD-WAN at the research firm.
“We anticipate that security will increasingly be the driver and lead SASE’s SSE to exhibit over twice the growth of SASE’s SD-WAN.”
