Foundational changes are demanding new WAN networking realities and creating opportunity for CSPs.  The rise of public cloud; the rise of work-at-home, the rise of digital services and business, the importance of digital supply chain collaboration. Additionally, both the sophistication of and the consequences of security threats are vastly greater.

The net result is that enterprises are demanding end-to-end solutions, and telecom CSPs are best positioned to deliver those. In this forecast, we predict not only significant growth in the market for automated, managed security (rising to $17.6B in 2027) but also significant growth in CSPs’ share of that market – conditional on them raising their own game in automation.

We believe that success in security demands that CSPs provide it as an automated, managed service bundled with underlay and overlay transport.  We also believe that an effective, automated security offer drives additional transport segments – worth even more than the security itself.  This is a must-win market, and due to complexity, manual methods are not sufficient.

Our forecast looks at managed services for automated security across all six segments:

  • Managed SDWAN
  • Security Orchestration
  • Next Gen Firewalls as-a-Service
  • Native Cloud Security as-a-Service
  • DDoS Protection & Mitigation as-a-Service
  • Automated XDR as-a-Service

This forecast will be of particular interest to CSPs selling to enterprises, suppliers enabling CSPs with their enterprise growth plans.
