As more and more organizations make the move to the public cloud, security continues to be a significant roadblock. That’s why many organizations are turning to secure SD-WAN to protect their journey to the cloud.
To capture current attitudes and opinions about SD-WAN adoption, along with data about acquisition preferences, variations by industry, and a variety of related issues, Barracuda commissioned the independent research firm Vanson Bourne to survey IT decision makers around the globe. The results of that research were published in the new report, Secure SD-WAN: The Launch Pad into Cloud.
The survey includes responses from 750 executives, individual contributors, and team managers with responsibility for or knowledge of their organization’s cloud infrastructure. They came from organizations of all sizes and across a broad range of sectors, in EMEA, APAC and the US.See which driving factors are causing #SDWAN adoption rates to spike globally, including the regional differences.

New insights on security of public cloud deployments
The report uncovers some interesting perspectives on how organizations are approaching SD-WAN, how they prefer to acquire these solutions, and differences between industries. Highlights from the report include:
- 74% of respondents have either already deployed software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) or expect to do so within the next 12 months.
- The financial services industry has the highest rate of SD-WAN adoption. The public sector has the lowest.
- 52% of respondents want to acquire an SD-WAN solution via a cloud provider.
- Microsoft Azure is 50% more preferred than Amazon AWS and 125% more preferred than Google GCP.
“As more organizations move to public cloud, SD-WAN technology is a critical part of securing these cloud deployments,” said Klaus Gheri, VP, Network Security, Barracuda. “By deploying an all-in-one, secure SD-WAN solution natively built into the public cloud network, organizations can reap the full benefits of public cloud.”
