ESG Research: Transitioning Network Security Controls to the Cloud
The Emergence of Elastic Cloud Gateways
Cloud usage and the need for mobility has been driving transformative changes in the way we work. These changes to network architecture have also rendered traditional approaches to security ineffective organizations are looking to cloud delivered solutions that effectively secure the software defined perimeter (SDP).
Elastic cloud gateway solutions (ECG) refer to solutions that combine edge network security controls into a unified and centralized solution that is fit for the modern, distributed enterprise. To better understand the evolving network security landscape and the need for ECG solutions, ESG surveyed 376 IT and cybersecurity professionals responsible for evaluating, purchasing, and managing network security technology products and services. The results of the research include valuable information about the evolving threat landscape, the adoption of the software-defined perimeter (SDP), the changing face of SD-WAN, and the challenges associated with ECG architectures.
