"To capitalize on market demands, cybersecurity vendors are integrating SD-WAN capabilities like dynamic path selection into their security platforms while telecoms and service provider vendors are including security features such as encryption in their SD-WAN platforms," said Nicholas Wong, Information & Communication Technologies Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "For enterprises looking to transform their existing SD-WAN platform into a secure one, they can either utilize their existing security infrastructure or leverage flexible cloud security services.

Wong added: "The advantage of this model is its flexibility and suitability for companies that have already deployed an SD-WAN-only platform. However, this may compound the complexity of simultaneously managing both security and networking for their IT operations teams."

For market participants, the surging adoption of secure SD-WAN by enterprises presents lucrative growth opportunities, including:

  • Accelerating Cloud Adoption: As enterprises utilize the cloud and SD-WAN technology for enhanced connectivity, cybersecurity risks increase. Therefore, vendors and solution providers stand to reap benefits by providing robust solutions that ensure high network performance with perimeter protection.
  • Leveraging existing security solutions: Cybersecurity vendors with network security solutions can consider expanding their integrated firewall solutions and intrusion detection and prevention systems to cover SD-WAN environments.
  • Increasing opportunities for managed service providers: Enterprises are expected to increasingly outsource the monitoring and maintenance of their secure SD-WAN environment, therefore more managed service providers are expected to join the market to help enterprises manage their Secure SD-WAN.
