For senior channel leaders whose companies are focused on cloud and security, SASE represents a huge growth opportunity that began during the pandemic. Channel partners steered customers toward the adoption of cloud-first architectures opening up all sorts of new opportunities including the consumption of network and security as-a-service. This is all driving the need for increased convergence and has led to changes in customer buying behavior and architectural shifts. The result is a secure access service edge (SASE) market that Gartner predicts will grow from $4.5 billion in 2021 to $10.9 billion in 2024. That’s a 42 percent CAGR and channel partners are taking notice. In this session, attendees will hear perspectives from SASE experts who will discuss why legacy security overlay solutions fail to provide the agility, flexibility, connectivity, and security required in the network fabric that weaves together the digital economy and real world customer case studies.

Key discussion points include:

  • Why SASE deployment plans are accelerating at global enterprises
  • Who is planning to deploy SASE architectures in the next 12-24 months
  • Why customers will not rely on existing security vendors for new SASE deployments
  • Why selling SASE and AIOps as two separate items rather than a single solution is the best route
  • Next-generation SASE solutions that bring together best of breed security features with AI-enhanced global networks
  • Providing IT leaders with a single fully managed SASE with built-in AIOps solution
